I can tell you. I am addicted to them. Every day around 11am, I try to get excited about some kind of healthy lunch. By 11:45am I am starting to waver, and by noon I am standing in front of my favorite burrito cart (Loco Locos Burritos) ordering either a bean and cheese or chicken burrito. It’s just so good. Then by right about now, I am downing cold coffee trying to help make it through my 2pm meeting.
How do I break this cycle? It’s hard. Here’s why:
- Burritos taste really good. And to me, they aren’t even that unhealthy. Note to my readers, I consider everything that isn’t fried or made of corn syrup healthy.
- The lady at the burrito cart is just so nice and she knows exactly what I want (half and half on the beans and easy on the cheese). After my mother and Jen, she’s probably the woman I talk the most to. Plus, she has a really shiny gold tooth.
- It’s nice to go outside for lunch and be in an environment completely different than my work. My lunch peers are construction workers, homeless people, the burrito lady with that golden tooth and all of her brothers and cousins.
If someone gives me a really compelling reason to stop eating burritos for lunch, I’ll try to eat something else tomorrow. I just need your help getting started.
