EAT FOR THE ROAD
WITH a career that can see her on the other side of the city — or the country — at the end of a working day, Lara spends a lot of time outside her food comfort zone. But she says careful planning helps her resist the lure of the drive-through.
“I’m very conscious of what’s good for me,” she says. “I know I function far better when I eat more fish and less bread, for example, but lifestyle and work can sometimes get in the way of that.
“I hate to admit it, but when I was pregnant, I did pull into the drive-through because I felt so sick and I just wanted to eat bad food. But now I’m into boiled eggs or roast vegetables that I’ve put into containers to take with me.
“But I love fish, and my go-to takeaway is sushi. We cook a lot at home as well, which is mostly trying to get the vegies into the boys. If I can get them to eat broccoli then I feel like I’m winning at life.”
