What are you all eating today for lunch on this awful Monday?

I got 10 bucks left on my Applebee's gift card, but don't know what to get. Got a burger last time from there and it was ok but nothing special. Anyone recommend anything off their menu?

Salad consisting of baby spinach, shredded carrots, hard boiled egg crumbles, cucumber slices, and light ranch dressing. Also going to dip into the cucumbers and sweet onion that have been marinating in apple cider vinegar overnight. YUM!

It still causes an insulin response that leads to fat storage.

Some people also drink a LOT of diet soda (multiple cans a day). It is not an acceptable substitute for water. Water is required for efficient fat metabolism and it helps to curb appetite too.

Also, artificial sweeteners and their extreme sweetness cause a kind of desensitization to other sweet things, making you crave sweeter and sweeter things.

Additionally, diet soda just isn't a healthy thing. It's very acidic and the jury is still out on artificial sweeteners and long term effects.

Seriously? In my opinion, subway beats NOTHING. The meat is terrible fake meat and the veggies are always prepackaged soggy crap. The bread is somewhat good and that is their only redeeming point. Subway's declining quality combined with their ever increasing prices have caused me to do a personal boycott of that restaurant.

Jason's Deli is pretty good and it's much more than a sandwich shop. They have a pretty big menu and they usually have a salad bar inside. Also, you get free ice cream after you eat there!

Panera has some choice stuff. Their chicken salad with grapes and almonds is money.

Besides being bad for you, Firehouse sandwiches also taste like ass, IMO.

Yes where I live there are so many other options, Jasons Deli, Penn Station, Firehouse, Panera, small family owned places, Jersey Mikes (alot like Mr Goodcents). So I rarely make it to Subway, even with their current mission to make it as common around town as McDs. Though nothing beats Cinnamons Deli in Wichita.

That is not an endorsement of Subway, but a damming of Jimmy Johns. I fucking hate Jimmy Johns and almost get pissed just listening to their commercials.

I can down a Panera veggie (one of the best chain veggies available) or tuna. The problem is for it to be filling I have to get a full sandwich (which come with the healthier chips - only contains potato, sunflower oil, and sea salt) plus a bowl of soup. Ends up costing around $12-13 which is overpriced for that type of stuff, IMO.

It won't quit snowing, and I have rear wheel drive. Dad gets off of work at 3:30, and then he's bringing me a couple of bags of wood pellets (he has a couple of pellet stoves). They weight like 75 lbs each or something like that. So, I should be able to make it home.
