Why: I snack a lot during the day at work. At night, dinner usually isn’t served until about 9, so after school snacks are a necessity.
What: I go through such phases, it would be useful to list out some ideas for reference during a rut. This is what’s on top of my head now. Mental note to add on. Suggestions are very welcome!
Jump through for the list…
Rice cake and cottage cheese: Only a Stockburger would understand. Cottage cheese on rice cakes with garlic salt. Tomato slice is optional. So delicious.
Crusty bread and olive oil: Drizzle oil on a plate with some kosher salt and pepper. Sponge up on crusty bread. This is in heavy rotation now that S has olive oil from work.
Nuts: Usually peanuts, though pistachios and almonds are tasty, too. Lately we haven’t had any nuts and I’ve been resorting to sunflower seeds.
Raw veggies with ranch dressing: Ranch dressing has a purpose in life and that’s to make celery stalks edible. Most frequently served with baby carrots.
Fruit: I got on a grapefruit kick for a while, but that stuff is really time consuming (I only like to eat the section without any skin or pith). Bananas with wheat germ has been bfast this week.
Rhymes with Sneeze-its: My processed food weakness. I haven’t bought a box in so long. I could at a whole box right now.
Popcorn: We pop corn on the stove in olive oil. Usually served spicy with salt, EVOO, paprika, cumin, coriander, and cayenne. Last time was so spicy, I couldn’t stop sneezing whenever I opened the tupperware. It was worth it.
