I hear some of you aren't snackers. I totally respect that. I am guilty of snacking probably way more than I ought to. I am actually trying to cut back but I also have a weird schedule at work (I eat breakfast around 7:45, a small snack at 12, lunch anywhere from 2-3, another snack at 5, and dinner after I get home at 7), so I do need to supplement my meals so that I'm not ravenous when I get home. I find small snacks actually keep both my eating habits and my blood sugar at an even keel. And you don't want to see me when my blood sugar drops! I'm also in a bad habit of not photographing my snacks as often as my meals and I don't want to give you the wrong impression of what I eat.
So, for Sarah, who was looking for snack ideas, or for anyone curious, here's a collection of a couple of my snacks at work for the past few days, or just some stuff I graze on at home.
Shen into after eating once and forgetting about, but then she got me back into by posting about eating them for breakfast. They are tasty lil nuggets.
For the record, I think all the almond butter in these photos is MaraNatha creamy roasted. I had a coupon and remembered it fondly, perhaps more due to the awesome roommate I used to have who shared all her vegan food with me, so I bought it. It's creamy and tasty, sure, but has added oils and salt and sugar! Yuck. It also messes with my stomach more than the raw almond butter I usually eat so instead of being normal and sensible and putting it aside, I'm eating as much as I can to get rid of it more quickly.
Also, you may notice my snacks lean mostly to the sweet side. I'm trying to change that, so if you guys have any ideas besides raw veg sticks, I'd love to hear them (not that there's anything wrong with raw veg sticks). Thanks!
And, unrelated but SO DAMN CUTE, my cat fell asleep in a grocery bag! I assaulted her by taking photos and then lifting her up and carrying her around in the bag. She was too sleep-doped to protest.
