Question for service-people

praisethelard | Jan 8, 2014 08:41 AM

So, since starting to work the dinner service at my restaurant, I've come to realize that I have to eat a really, really big lunch. We don't get family meal until after service is over at the restaurant, so I'm basically challenged to eat enough to keep me full for eight-plus hours at a time. So far, I've figured out that the chicken over rice combos from the local teriyaki stand are what keep me full longest, but I don't want to eat that every day. So, fellow hounds-who-double-as-service-staff, what's your favorite thing to eat to get you through service without wanting to eat the food you're serving to people? Just to throw another wrench in, I'm also gluten-intolerant, so your average monster sandwich (which would be my obvious go-to for a question like this normally) is not really an option unless I make it at home. And as always, mods, if you find another, more appropriate home for this topic, please feel free to move it! Thanks in advance.
