Sometimes more than once a day…
I don't snack much at home (where I am most of the time), and if I do, it is almost always fruit
But, in the spirit of the exercise: Since I don't buy snacks for home, when I smoke a bit of weed (every few weeks), the munchies can resort to cheddar sticks dipped in mustard, if that's what's left. Or oats, etc.
But there's no way I'm going to stop the MJ; the cognitive, creative, concepts, explorations, and insights, are truly one of the best parts of my existence.
But it'd be nice to reduce the binge snacking that frequently comes with it.
Although my aim is to only snack if I am hungry, this doesn’t always happen. Sometimes I still end up snacking out of habit or not being able to tell for sure if I am actually hungry or if the feeling is just a craving (related to things other than hunger).
Now if I ever feel like snacking between meals, it's on something like sunflower seeds or chopped beets with cilantro, and other energizing things that are satisfying, but I don't have that addictive response to. Also, I only do this a few times a week! It's not that I restrict myself, I just get the urge to snack less. That's what I would have to share if you are starting to think about your snacking habits!
Or even half of cake when I feel I need it.
But I don't eat between the meals
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
