I packed a peanut butter and jam sandwich to be divided for breakfast and lunch. Lunch/afternoon snack also includes a small salad. Today it will be easier to budget my food intake knowing that I have a work dinner, paid for by the Faculty Association. The Afghan Women’s Catering Group will supply the food so it will be high protein. It is interesting to think about how working a steady job includes perks that are so easily taken for granted: a meal here, a drink there – all part of the social expectation of my employment terrain.
