My fast food obsessed boss
I've recently made the move to Paleo and it's been going great! I finally feel like I've found something that makes sense to me. I've been loving it and I'm trying to learn as much as I can about new foods and cooking techniques, and so far so good!
Having said that, I'm about to face my biggest challenge yet - my boss. I am an event planner and we often work on 2-6 day long conferences both in my city and away. Tomorrow we are leaving for 2 back-to-back courses which is going to result in 8 days away in a hotel. This is a big enough challenge because there is no option for cooking, and not even a fridge in my room! With 10-15 hour days I'm not really sure how to deal, but I know at least that at the hotel I can order a chicken breast and a salad or something.. it will certainly be a challenge.. does anyone have any tips?
The part that's even worse is the travelling and the evenings with my boss. We carpool to the events (this one in particular is a 6 hour drive!) and she always insists in pulling over at a McDonalds for our lunch break. Then there's also the evenings during the course where she wants to have dinner at her favourite taco stand or poutinerie. While I know I'm not being forced to eat anything at these places, she essentially gets offended if I don't join her in stuffing my face or if I bring my own food. It seems like I'm stuck between choosing my nutrition or my career and it's SO frustrating. Has anyone had experience with something similar or have any suggestions??
