So excited you've started a new blog! I can absolutely identify. I may be able to run a marathon, but god I need to work on riding-specific muscles. I spent fall and winter putzing around and having fun, and now I need to feel riding-fit again. :P My goal is to be in shape in time for the blessing of the hounds when foxhunting season starts- something I desperately want to try but don't feel fit enough for right now. [In other news, since 8 Days a Week ended my blogging has been nil at best, but I've finally started writing about something I can stick with an actually have content for: horse related literature and movies. http://horsepeopledearreaders.blogspot.com/ ]I have faith in you, and I'm looking forward to this ;) Nice to have someone to follow along with to give me motivations!
Of course I forgot to answer your initial question- unfortunately, I don't have a go-to snack. One of the medications I'm on has almost completely eliminated my appetite. Great for weight control, but sometimes its not as great as it sounds. I very very rarely actually "crave" something and sometimes its just plain hard to eat because I'm not hungry. I know, I know, #firstworld problems haha. However, before I was on this, the go-to snack was celery and salsa. I have an unhealthy love for hot salsa (or anything hot, really. I am that girl that has a miniature bottle of hot sauce in her purse) and since celery has 0 calories, it was the perfect vehicle for salsa.
I LOVE salsa! Definitely adding that to the drawer!
Also, checking out your new blog now! I've missed your writing.
I like 100 calorie packs of guacamole with carrots, also string cheese, or rice crackers and some goat cheese.
I like to eat fruit for a snack :-)
New to your blog, looking forward to getting caught up!:)www.simplyhorsecrazy.com
Fruit is good, but I am terrible at eating fruit... :/ Nectarines, apples and bananas are convenient (even diced peach snack packs are pretty good).I quite often eat high-calorie snacks, especially if I'm being quite active. My favourites are ones that will give my hunger a good hit (stop the grumbly tummy for a while), so either a really solid muesli (Carmen's) or nut bar or a really filling yoghurt (ie. full-fat... love Gippsland dairy). If I'm going to eat 200 calories, it may as well make me feel like I ate something! So those suggestions are probably not very helpful, but are nice for a bit of a healthy treat?But the other thing I would suggest for sure is Fava Nuts. They're in the health food section. They are salted. But they are in convenient snack pack portions. I like the taste of them. They're easy to eat while driving (once pack is open). And high protein, so quite filling. If I am hungry enough to eat the whole snack pack, I usually feel quite satisfied. If I don't finish, they keep quite well until I'm peckish again. They're made from faba beans / broad beans (tic beans, like fed to horses!), you can also get ones made from chickpeas but I like the Fava Nuts.Hope you like them!
