I'm at a workshop in a hotel that's set up chiefly as a conference center. They provide refreshments, snacks, and all meals, presumably at some exorbitant cost.

There are about 8 varieties of cold drinks available during the day. All but 2 are some variant on water+sugar+coloring. Most of the breakfast foods are pastries and sugary cereals. All of the snacks are things like ice cream bars (mmm), potato chips, cookies, popcorn and miniature candy bars. Well, almost all -- there are a few granola bars. There are a couple of trail mixes... made mostly of chocolate, nuts, and dried candied fruit. Lunch is heavy on X-in-sauce, starches and fried stuff. The dessert table is itself as big as the buffet line containing the entrees.

I find that I resent it when my only realistic options for eating well are either to go way out of my way or to skip food entirely.

At the next break I intend to go up to the front desk and raid the bowl of apples. That may be my only hope.
