Ever since I was little hunger came at me quick. As soon as I woke up in the morning, I needed to eat and if I let myself go too long, I got nauseous, dizzy, and light headed. My hanger is unlike anything I've ever seen, so I constantly need to eat.
Whether it's some roasted almonds, pretzels, or a granola bar, I need something in my stomach to remain cool, calm, and collected. Because of this, I ALWAYS have food on me. If I'm going to work, I have afternoon snacks, and at least 3 granola bars in my bag. If I'm going to visit my family or friends, theres something in my bag, and I've stooped so low to even put a granola bar in my bag when I go to the bar on a night out.
I'm so terrified of feeling sick and without something to soothe me so yes, the point is that I always have food on me.
Sounds weird but it's true.
I have my go-tos but I've been expanding my favorites recently so I figured that it would make a good post.
1. Nature Valley Oatmeal Bars: These are my FAVORITES and have been for quite some time. I really only eat these in the morning before work while I'm on the train, and they give me substance I need to curb my hunger. Sometimes between this and coffee, I'm not even hungry for breakfast once I get into the office.
2. Nature Valley Chewy Dark Chocolate & Nut: I'm a huge Nature Valley person but depending on what granola bar it is, they can irritate my throat *I have a slight nut allergy if the nuts are raw but these are perfect. They're a great combination of chocolate, chewy, and nuts so they fill me up.
3. Justin's Almond Butter: This is something new I've been trying. For years I thought I was allergic to almonds but when I was trying to become healthier, I did a little experiment and realized I could eat roasted almonds. Raw nuts and fruits make my throat and ears itch so anything roasted is good. I love peanut butter so almond butter was the next thing to try and since it's made with roasted almonds I'm ok. UGH I'm obsessed with the little packets of Justin's Almond Butter in different flavors: Classic, Honey, and Maple. I eat them with pretzels and it's the perfect mid-afternoon snack.
4. Belvita Breakfast Biscuits: These are the macdaddy of breakfast snacks; 4 biscuits keep me full all day long. I love the Golden Oat flavor and sometimes I feel like I'm eating one of those baby biscuits but Belvita is so addictive, I don't even care!
Honorable Mention: I've only tried these once but they are so tasty! I haven't been able to find them in stores anywhere but I think I'll have to take a trip to Target to get some.
What are your favorite snacks?
