Are you a snacker?

So what type of snacker are you?  

Not too long ago, I was "the bored snacker".  You know the one, the person mindlessly snacking in front of the TV, not tasting the food being put into my mouth, and it had nothing whatsoever to do with being hungry.

Over the last few years, I've managed to rid myself from snacking.  It took time, but my body eventually adjusted, and then poof, gone - foggy 3pm brain, and gone - constant need to think about food.  Wow...food freedom is utterly addictive!

So why ask this question now?  

Because snacking has starting to creep back into my daily ritual.  I didn't even notice it sneaking back into my life until writing a food journal for my naturopath.  Jeez...talk about food amnesia.  And guess what also has come back into my life for a visit.  Sugar cravings, and oh yes, foggy brain.

Yes I agree, life is too short to give up the stuff we love, and by eating (and thoroughly enjoying) my sweet treats at the right time (for me this is with my actual meal where I'm also consuming protein and fat), I can once again enjoy food freedom, good digestion and a clear head.

It's time to get back to basics.  Here I go....again....
