My weekend was particularly uneventful, mostly work and study. With the end of the year fast approaching most of my assignments are due in the next few weeks.
When I study or write assignments I like to graze on food. When I was in high school and the beginning of university it was to be a big bowl of skittles and M&Ms, the bright colours a happy reminder that if I finished the paragraph I got a small handful, the sugar high kept me going for hours. As I grew I realised that that much sugar was a bad plan and started eating healthier snacks. Then it grew to apples, especially green apples with peanut butter (don’t knock it till you try it! It’s Yummy!), nuts, dried fruit and carrots. All fairly healthy food and I could plough though it all as my brain tried to focus on the complex theories or strange ideas in front of me and form them into coherent arguments.
Now with this diet even my regular snacks have gone and I have to be inventive. Asparagus and beans are great; I’ve even realised I can have my homemade hollandaise sauce with it, a little butter true but mostly eggs and lemon juice, also a light Tzatziki (yogurt and cucumber), and I’m contemplating if we’re allowed hummus. Also there’s always the berries, strawberries and blueberries!
I’m beginning to need a change though, something a little different. What have people been having for snacks? Does anyone have anything a little different I can add to my repertoire? Especially something that I can just pick up and eat on the run???
