Speaking of Bossy’s lunch, Christ on the cross, Bossy doesn’t know if there’s anyone with less of a gift for food photography than Bossy herself, but anyway: you are looking at an apple with peanut butter and flax seed, baby spinach leaves, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, and a handful of Bossy’s obsession.
The central characters in Bossy’s lunch are always shifting, but usually involve greens, nuts, a little pile of supper leftovers if there are any, maybe a hunk of cheese, etc. The deal is, Bossy leans toward hypoglycemia, and it took her nearly four decades to figure out that most of the lunches she consumed were responsible for a huge afternoon blood sugar crash, which resulted in epic Bossy naps.
These days Bossy works 16″ from her refrigerator, and so the draw to eat the worst things all throughout the day is right under her nose — but the benefits of staying on track far outweigh the sacrifice of foregoing bread-heavy, complex lunches with melted cheese. Luscious melted cheese.
Oh, and Bossy still naps. Go figure.
