Lunch is hard.

Where should you go? What should you to eat? Questions that need to be answered quickly usually eat up your lunch hour, assuming you have one.

When I travel internationally I always welcome any itinerary that takes me to Heathrow in London. Security is a beast and navigating the airport when trying to make a flight can be a harrowing experience, but I love it. The chaos is invigorating.

One of my favorite stops at Heathrow is the Boots Pharmacy, a UK-based drugstore chain.

I’ve been eating “clean” for about two weeks, which for me, can mean a variety of different things. Right now, it means significantly reducing the amount of sugar and carbs that I typically mainline on a daily basis.

This week, I reached my limit. Don’t get me wrong, eating clean is great, but when I have to prepare everything myself and then it doesn’t look or taste like something out of the pages of Bon Appetit or Gourmet magazine, I rapidly lose interest.

I desired a taste explosion. I wanted something that was delicious and filling, but still relatively healthy so a cheeseburger deluxe was out of the question…

My first thought was falafel.

After a particularly long day I like to mellow out with California’s finest, and often I get a taste for something delicious. Usually it’s something salty and sweet. It could be buttered toast, Welch’s Fruit Snacks, pita chips, the possibilities are endless. Continue reading
