Food is wonderful, and I love it. This is something you already know about me full well. I like it far too much according to most US Standards. I am hungry ALL day long, seriously, I’m always hungry. Maybe it is because I wake up at 4am each day, or maybe it is just because I like food. Either way, I always want to eat. When I was in Highschool, if I was hungry I would chew on a stick of gum, Winter-fresh to be exact; now when I’m hungry, I eat. Talk about a change in priorities!
Here is my dilemma. I snake on things like triscuits and hummus, triscuits and peanut butter, triscuits and cheddar, pretzels, pretzels and cream cheese, or peanut butter. Heavens help me if it’s night time, then I am a Haagen Dazs girl all the way! You see where this is heading. If I snack on an apple, I get half way through and I am bored. I tried plain, roasted, unsalted almonds for a while, but my satisfaction level was “eh.” Maybe I should have dipped them in Hummus, or wrapped them in cheddar?
Please tell me I’m not alone in this shame spiral?! Do you snack throughout the day, or stick strictly to eating during meal times? If you snack, what do you snack on? I would like to alter my snacking habits, but it is just so hard, I am in dire need of some inspiration! 🙂
