Gluten Free Lunches…at a Restaurant!

Are you tired of hearing about how exhausted I am from painting?!

Me too.

But yes, yesterday was another long (only 9 hours) day of painting. The good news: we only have two fixtures left! The bad news: We ran out of paint…again!

It’s been sort of strange to have such a long and different work schedule for the past four days. I’m completely off of my regular schedule, which as much as I hate it, it’s probably good for me to adjust to change.

A big part of the change is that I haven’t been eating home prepared lunches. We paint from 9am to 2pm, then we take a break for lunch, and the urge to leave the building is STRONG! So I’ve eaten at nearly every local joint that has a GF lunch option…or at least that’s how it feels!


It’s nice to know that I have so many options close to my work, but ultimately I’d rather eat a packed lunch on a day to day basis. I have been TORCHING calories this week, so I wasn’t too worried about Monday’s pizza run, but I have to be aware of the importance of not making that a habit.

So today I’m packing a lunch, since it should be the last day of painting. However, we do still have to put all the merchandise back where it goes….

And hopefully tonight I’ll get home in time to cook a proper supper, instead of getting home at 9pm and getting straight into bed!

What are your favorite gluten free lunch spots?
