I have crammed a plain lunch meat sandwich (usually lean chicken or something) down on my way to work.. who eats that at 6 in the morning?

good tip, i am counting calories, i love the taste of real eggs, though.

lol, true.. As you know.. as soon as you get there you start dealing with patients and I'm certainly not going to work with a patient and eat (although I have seen it done) I have actually seen people eat off of the patient's trays *shudder*

At least I have an office I can hide in to eat. I've seen people eat off of patient trays, in front of the patient.

On our Memory Care Unit, the meals are served "family style" and the CNA's are allowed to eat with the patients, off their own plates of course. It helps the dementia patients with their orientation and calms them. One of the only perks working Memory Care.

I know what you mean. I'm the same way. I always had to add that one real egg into my egg beaters omelet just to get the taste of the yolk.
