Healthy Snacking – Part II

I had written a blog some time ago about healthy snacking at work.  My newest dilemma is snacking while at school.  Working an 8-5 job and then rushing to school afterwards (and being there until after 8 pm) makes for a long day, and a very loud, growling stomach.

My school campus is filled with fast food restaurants, vending machines, and coffee stands.  The temptation to splurge on a cheeseburger or a coffee and pastry are beyond tempting, and costly when I am spending money every night on food.

The photo below is of my new way to curb mindless spending on food.  I found that by packing a few extra healthy snacks with my lunch has been able to keep my hunger at bay.  I grab a piece of fruit and a small serving of pretzels packed in my NEW Premier containers (which I love) to munch on once I get into the parking deck at school. 

Taking 15 minutes to eat in my car allows me to take the time to clear my mind of work clutter, get ready for learning, and not have to worry about a pit-stop at a fastfood restaurant (or being bothered by my fellow students).

Car Snacking 

To keep it healthy, I make sure that I am eating only the recommended serving size of the snack.  I also fill my Rubbermaid water bottle at work before I leave for school to keep myself hydrated during my 15 minutes of bliss.

I try to keep snacks on hand any time I know that dinner will be later than usual.  The ease and temptation of a drive-thru is even harder to resist when I am hungry and know that dinner won't be until after 8-ish.  I am also not a big fan of late night eating, so by snacking through-out the evening, I am able to eat a lighter dinner of, say, just a salad.  I also try to bulk up on my main meals throughout the day, insuring that I am having a well-rounded breakfast and lunch.

    I purchased this mop. The idea of being able to use my own floor cleaning detergents is great as is the washable mop attachment but the handle is unusable. It breaks when you put any pressure on it to dispense the liquid and push I returned my first one in the first hour of use, got a second and it also broke. I have used Rubbermaid products for years and am extremely disappointed so I am back to my swifter more costly but designed for use. Sorry Rubbermaid a simple redesign of the handle and this mop would be a great product.
