Which leads me to my question for today: What are your favourite snacking foods? And do you have them nearby when you read? (A woman from church told me there was a time when she needed to gain weight, so she began snacking as she read. Now she has to get out of the habit so she can maintain a healthy weight but not exceed it!)
My answers: I am enjoying one particular snack idea from my hypoglycemia handout - cottage cheese, raw vegetables (been using mini carrots), and wheat crackers. The crackers are a little boring and dry on their own, but with the rest of the food, they're perfect! I just grab a small plate and throw about six crackers on, a little handful of carrots, and then scoop out some cottage cheese to fill the empty space! Yum yum yum. Of course, I would love to eat something with chocolate in it.... this is healthier, though, so it's better for avoiding unpleasant hypoglycemic symptoms!!
I talk a lot, don't I? I'll make my second answer shorter. I don't usually eat when I read, unless it's mealtime and the book is too good to put down!
