Yup. That’s me.
A snack monster.

This change of schedule has totally messed with my eating schedule/habits. I haven’t decided if it’s a good or bad thing yet. Of course I think it is a bad thing, constant eating, eating when not really hungry. Not a good habit if you ask me. ED hates it too. Of course. This means I might just actually gain weight (like I’m suppose to). I just don’t like unhealthy habits. There will be a time when I am at a “normal” weight and a habit of boredom eating isn’t really desirable. But oh the woes of an eating disorder. And boredom. Haha.

Even though mentally I am conflicted by this change in eating, I have been snacking on some pretty tasty things. Ironically as I was writing this post I saw a tweet from Jenn saying June would be “snacky”. Ironic? Fate? Either way, I thought it was funny I was already writing a snack-tastic post. So let’s get snacking!
Thanks to the lovely Heather, I have had some tasty bars available to me.
Since I’m really on a “no work out plan” from my nutritionist I wasn’t a huge bar consumer. Well, that’s not exactly true. I’m not a whole bar at one time consumer. It will usually take me a day or two to finish a bar because it’s usually my tide me over to the next meal kind of snack. I do love my bars though!

Morning snack-age has looked like this recently.
Ok, that Enjoy Life Sunbutter Crunch bar. Pretty much amazing. And go figure they aren’t in my stores.
Thanks for the tease Heather 😉
And the local granola I got at the farmer’s market has been making it into my mouth quite a bit.
I can’t help that I am a snacker. I see it. I looks good. I grab a handful.

Mid day snacks are happening too.
In the best way possible.
A day without Chobani is not a good day in my book. And let’s be honest, I don’t think I could go a day without some sort of greek yogurt in my life. And I can’t help that I am a Chobani snob. That stuff needs to not be so expensive.
But my most recent obsession?
Chocolate Peanut Butter Hummus.
I’ve made my own little version of STUFT Mama’s, but I do blame her for my recent addiction.
I can not get enough of this stuff.
And let’s take a minute to talk about my gingerbread protein “muffins”.
I saw a recipe on Peas and Thank You for homemade gingerbread clif bars and of course tweaked it a bit and made “muffins”.
Whatever they are, they are amazing.

And for dessert?
Let’s look at some of my awesome challenge dessert snackings lately!
I’ve been doing amazing with pushing past my “fatty dessert” comfort level. Definitely worth mentioning!
A real blizzard. Oreo style! And I ate it all! Frozen yogurt, ok kind of safe, but this was after a full dinner out, but I was with friends and tried to push myself with the amount and toppings. And peanut butter after dinner is usually a no no, especially on a piece of banana bread. Nope, this was devoured and was delicious! (PB Crave made it extra special. Oh my. I couldn’t decide on one flavor and did two. Typical.)

That’s it for this snack monster. I hope everyone has a lovely week!!

What have you been snacking on lately?
Do you mind snacking during the day or do you try to stick to your three meals?
