A Little Shift In Diet

six days worth of snacking
six days worth of snacking

Ever since I’ve been working back in Oshkosh, I’ve noticed that I get really hungry several times a day.  It’s probably had something to do with my relatively poor diet– a lot of empty-calorie foods that are doing nothing for me but making me fat.  I had talked about it, but finally decided today I would go to the store and try to add some protien and fiber to my diet.  Not only should it help make me a little healthier, it should save time because I won’t be so goddamn hungry all day.

Bulk nuts and mixes are EXPENSIVE.  But the trail mix is nothing compared to unsalted bulk cashews.  I spent a little less than 12 dollars and got a little more than 2.5 lbs of food.  Maybe it’ll turn out OK, though– I was hungry on my way home, so I admit to digging in to each of the three varieties that I later mixed all together.  What remained I split up into 6 ziploc bags.  I figure one bag a day should keep me satisfied.

I really think it will; after I finished mixing up my nuts and raisins and whatnot, I looked in the fridge, shrugged and thought, “y’know, I’m not even hungry anymore.”

  1. A couple snack options:

    First get yourself an Igloo cooler,
    -string cheese with any type of fruit
    -cottage cheese with any type of fruit, and you can throw nuts in too
    -tuna casserole/salad (with a tablespoon of light mayo + dill weed), they kind that mom and gma bock used to make, can be eaten cold or warm
    -or if you like yogurt try Oikos or Chobani greek yogurt its creamy, thick, and fat free, has protein and is usually satisfying, add fruit or nuts
