Ready for a snack attack

SoupI’m not sure what’s been going on with me lately….I’ve been SERIOUSLY hungry.  Maybe it’s the cold temp.  Maybe it’s the increase in exercise.  Maybe it’s really hunger.  Not sure.

What I do know is that if I don’t have good things to eat on hand, we could have a situation – one that I won’t feel good about when it’s over.

So for the last few days I’ve been getting my house snack-ready and stockpiling goodies of all types.

I made veggie soup (my fav veggies, chicken stock, fresh herbs) I can eat when I want without guilt.

I prepped snack-size portions of good-for-me treats – fruits, veggies & hummus, nuts, and cheese – that I can grab when I’m hungry.


And, I picked up a few healthy indulgences to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Having done all this, I feel good about being able to handle my next snack attack responsibly.

Sometimes, a little planning and elbow grease can give you peace of mind – and a happy belly.  🙂

    That’s not to say you can’t have a candy bar or chips once in a while, if you like them. But try to make your regular snacks more nutritious. If you’re feeling mildly hungry, maybe a piece of fruit will do the trick. But if you’re feeling hungry at snacktime, and dinner is still a long way off, try a pita stuffed with veggies, cereal with milk, oatmeal, or an English muffin pizza.

    All those snacks look delicious! I’ve been hungrier recently too.

      Also, I think I’m going to try to put my snacks in baggies and organize it like you, I think its a great idea

    I’m the same way actually. Lately all I’ve wanted to do is eat up a storm. It’s somewhat comforting to know I’m not the only one. Though you are dealing with it ten fold better then me. Maybe I’ll prepare something too.

    One of my fave snacks is a banana with 1 tbsp of peanut butter! You have to slice the banana lengthwise and sandwich the peanut butter between, or it’ll stick to the roof of your mouth. It’s science!
