It's Talk to Me Tuesday again, where I seek your help to answer some of life's questions. Some are important, some are not. The point of Talk to Me Tuesday is for me to learn from YOU and YOU to give me suggestions. AND, if you would like some advice on the same subject, you can read either the facebook comments, or the comments below...so you can learn you some things as well.
So, life's questions...here we go. Talk to me about Snacks.
With each of my boys, two things have happened. AND, strangely enough, they have nothing to do with nursing (I have stopped nursing all my boys after a couple weeks).
I get SO HUNGRY. ALL THE TIME. I am sure it is a hormonal thing or something, but after having the babies, I wanna eat all the time. Unfortunately, a lot of times, I choose to eat unhealthy things, which is how I have ended up gaining 10 lbs with each of my boys. I need to stop the insanity!
This has been slowly happening, but I can say with certainty, I now, officially have a sweet tooth. This is very bad news :( I have always loved me some snacks, but I have never craved sweet things (I am more of a salty kind o' girl), until now. DUDE, I love me some treats at the end o' the day. Love me some candy, love me some icecream, LOOOOVE me some cookies. My husband says he has never met someone that needs so many treats :)
We are really trying to get healthy 'round these parts. Aaron has joined Crossfit, and as of Nov. 1st, I'll be back at the ol' gym.
SO...TALK TO ME
What are your favorite healthy and quick snacks to eat? I need some variety, need some quick go-to's that will be healthy, but FILLING (remember, the constant hunger I told you about). The six small meal thing works for me, so the snacks can be on the bigger side. What are your favorites?
What do you do to curb your sweet tooth other than snickers, flurries, and chocolate chip cookies? What are some good 'sweet tooth' snacks that won't be horribly unhealthy and aren't disgusting... I'm like a child when it comes to going to far outside the box with things like fruit :) (bananas, apples and strawberries are about as far as I can push myself!).
