    Best answer: Breakfast: Beans are great for protein but you need to look at the salt content, and also the type of cheese and bread you are eating. If you are using margarine butter, you need to check saturated fat content. Lunch: Tuna is a great healthy snack. However, the mayonnaise needs to be checked for fat content and your pasta needs to be checked for carb and sugar content. Pasta by itself is usually fine, but it is the sauce and other additions that increase the calories. Dinner: Smoked fish is health but look at your noodles. What type of noodles and do you add any sauce or dressing? Basically, you are in the ballpark but would be good to fine-tune what you are eating. Also, you need to include fruit and vegetables to your diet, alongside healthy carbs, healthy fats and natural sugars.

    Best answer: Important to remember, people have different definitions of what is considered humorous, and they take these perceptions into different settings each day. You kneeling in front of your co-worker could easily be construed as being inappropriate for the workplace, despite your intentions. Also look at the context in which you knelt and called someone 'Lord and King', compared to the one co-worker calling another 'Mom'. Chances are they were not the same. You also need to consider the relationship between co-workers, perhaps there is more friendly banter between the co-worker who said 'Mom' and the recipient. If you truly do not understand the perceived penalty from your behavior, ask your co-workers for clarification. The more you know, the more you can do.
