When I'm at home, my latest practice is to make a main dish, then prepare a bunch of veggies and/or fruit on which to snack all afternoon. I LOVE to munch (potato chips are my weakness), hate sitting still, so veg provides a good antidote.
packed in my tomo tomo square bentos from Fitjp:
- soba noodles with red pepper, scallions, and a little ground beef. The sauce is soy sauce, water, garlic, and ginger.
- hardboiled egg, bunny-shaped. Needed more protein... and something yellow ;)
- tiny tomatoes, cucumber, and baby carrots
- half an orange and grapes, of course! My typical dessert.
You might have noticed that I've been eating more fruit lately... I've been craving it. I figure that when I have a craving, it's an indication that my body needs more of whatever vitamins are in what I'm craving (unless, of course, I'm craving donuts or chips, which means I've been eating too much sugar or salty fats). So, I'll indulge myself if it's healthy.
