I have a tendency to snack while studying (or during stressful events) and for the longest time, I was binge eating on unhealthy snacks (potato chips, candy bars, fries, cookies, more fries..etc). I would feel awful at the end of the evening and somehow I ended up eating the same things the following day.
For the past couple of months, I have been slightly better at munching on healthier snacks. I usually buy more from the produce section (especially when fruits are on SALE! the cantaloupes here were only $1.28! what a steal!) Here’s a peek of what I bought this week:
BOOM CHICKA POP (amazing!!!! — I usually eat more than the recommended serving!)
Asian pears (one of my favorites)
Nature Valley bars (Oats n’ honey, sweet & salty nut)
vita coco (I’m testing to see if coconut water DOES really help my skin)
sanpellegrino & perrier (to help supplement my soda cravings)
Lindt dark chocolate (it’s one of the better chocolates!)
For the fruits, I like to pre-cut the night before and pop it in the fridge. That way you would not have to worry the morning of and just grab and go!
Since I have switched to eating healthier snacks (I still sneak in a couple junk food here and there! hehe), I noticed my mood is slightly better, I lost some lbs and have more energy to study after work.
I would love any suggestion snack suggestion!
