“Oh, you’re one of those!”
By those, my friend meant “grazer”. One of those people who would rather eat small portions all day than 3 separate, more substantial meals. And, I guess, I am one of those. Especially at work. I’m usually busy enough that it’s hard to take 30 minutes or so to sit down and have a proper, full lunch. Plus I’m not usually hungry enough to eat that much. I almost never get omg-so-stuffed-I-can’t-move full and never omg-I’m-going-to-die hungry. It’s like a nice, almost constant level of tummy contentment.
My daily staples are apples, yogurt, almonds and roasted soy beans. I try to keep all of those things around the office as quick, easy snacks. Some other treats include corn cakes (like rice cakes, but corn) with peanut butter and jam or peanut butter and banana, carrot sticks and sliced chicken breast. Mangos if they aren’t too expensive.
I’m a little concerned I’m going to get sick of these at some point, though. It’s easier to stick with a diet if you’re always getting new, interesting and delicious foods added to it. It doesn’t matter what the food is, eat enough of it and you’ll get sick of it.
Any suggestions? What are your favourite healthy snacks? What do you do to keep yourself from falling into a same-food rut?
