New Snacking Habits For 2020

That blog post about a few bits of food.
Happy Weekend Ya'll I thought I would jump onto the blog and share a few of my new snacking habits for 2020. Although I do not eat healthy all the time, I do realize I need to pick up some late-night snacks for myself to enjoy instead of eating chips and candy all the time. As I am getting older, I want to 

eat more and also find new things to try without feeling guilty. I love food, and sometimes I do overeat because I may eat only once a day. But, now I am adding more snacks throughout the day that I love and enjoy.

So, I've decided to take the pressure off myself and enjoy the foods that I enjoy every so often. And I will also be trying new things every week, so I can break my same eating habits. So, I say yes to trying different fruits, loaves of bread, and spreads. 

Buying Cinnamon Bagels as a new snack during, work home and fun days
I am trying to spice up my breakfast yet keep it simple. Sometimes I do not have time for a full bacon, egg, and grits morning. So, I grabbed myself a few new bagels such as cinnamon, raisins, and garlic, to name a few. I have plans to use them for a morning on the go or a lunch sandwich. 

Sometimes if I have time, I will add an egg, and for lunch, I just may add some ham and cheese.

For work, I got a few bags of oranges, bananas, and pecans to keep at my work station. I usually grab something from the vending machine in between clients, but this year I am trying to practice better-snacking habits throughout the day.

Also, I wanted to try the Pummelo fruit in my salads and to eat raw from time to time. No, I have not tested the fruit as of yet, but I do know the outer part needs to be yellow, which indicates sweetness. My recent research has led me to believe it tastes like a grapefruit. Either way, I am happy to try something a little different on this new snacking journey.
Spinach and fruit to make smoothies and detox drinks
For dinners, I want to try drinking more smoothies and detox drinks before bedtime. Although I love fresh veggies and fruits, I prefer the frozen bags for making quick drinks on the go. Sometimes when I do not want a full meal, blending spinach, berries, and coconut always make me feel full and satisfied before going to bed.

Different fruits for snacking ideas at noon, and night
I believe it is a mind over matter thing with me and food. Because I think eating crunchy apples make me feel full. But, I will say it has become my new everyday snack in between trying to eat on a daily bases.
I just recently started taking a bushel of bananas to work and leaving them. Now I have something to grab and eat quickly even when I am at work all day. My goal this year is not to give up eating what I want, but rather add in more snacking on good food choices.
Raspberry Rugelach for late night snacking ideas
Now, you know I can not give up my sweets, so I do keep small pastries to have with my tea or coffee. I must confess I am a sweet mouth, and my sweets must stay on my list of snacking. #justbeinghonest
Cookie butter spread for bagels, toast etc. Great snacking ideas for 2020
Oh, did I mention another treat is when I can use cookie or almond butter on my toast and bagels? Hands down, that is my favorite snack with a cup of warm vanilla tea. Actually, I can eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 
Fuji water for midnight snacking
Also, I must confess I do not drink enough water, so I just bought my own personal jugs to keep at work, home, and on my nightstand. 

In conclusion: I am not trying to eat a certain way or uphold a particular way to enjoy eating. My goal is to try new things and just eat something even if it is a slice of bread. Sometimes I go all day without eating even a simple snack. Now that ain't healthy at all, that is terrible eating habits.

Nonetheless, I am going to try new snacks and food every week, so I can broaden my taste buds and horizon.

These are all my opinions, and I will be adjusting as my lifestyle changes.
There you have it, my new snacking habits.

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
