A delicious yet slightly unfortunate…
Featuring what I ate Tuesday! I call it unfortunate because I felt awful by the end of the day, and then realized I had basically neglected to intake carbs in any real way. This resulted in a gleeful carb binge. Yikes. Hurr we go…
String cheese and whole grain crackers. Started out meaning well on the carb front!
I was anxious about this mix since I’m not a huge coconut fan, but I gave it a go and realllly enjoyed it. I swear dried cherries are like a natural gusher…without the gush. Love love love. In other news, I was upset to find that the bigger packages of sunflower seeds at the store were all unsalted. I know that’s better for most people, but I need salt in my life in a big way! Bring on the NaCl s’il vous plaît! (I’m trying to see how much of my high school education I can utilize in this post. Two courses down!)
I remembered to buy the fat free kind! I was so proud.
There is only one type of almond butter available at my ShopRite. Luckily, it is a brand that has toasted flaxseed and wheat germ mixed in. I think this is a genius idea.
Sorry for the blurry picture, but there’s not a lot of light backstage! I learned from a reallll shaky (my body, not my acting, puh-lease) rehearsal on Monday and made sure to bring snacks that were salty. I salted the watermelon and munched on my salty whole grain crackers. I also ate an apple pie Lärabar and drank half a Yuengling in Scene 5. That isn’t really normal in theatre, but all the beer we drink in this show is real. Strangely, we mime the coffee.
By the time I left rehearsal I felt awful! I attributed it to low carbs and dehydration, but now I think it might also have been the beer. I haven’t had much alcohol in the past several weeks, and that can really make a difference. I ate the rest of the crackers on the way home and then made this:
Anybody else eat a goodly amount of cinnamon sugar toast as a kid? It totally hit the spot. Washed down with some chocolate milk. Yeah, I regressed about twenty years for my snack last night.
And that’s all she wrote! Notice I didn’t eat a single real meal? I’m gonna have to work on that, I think. For now I’ll just concentrate on making it from one day to the next.
What do you snack on when you need a ton of energy?
Clif bars are definitely up there.
