Random Photo of the Day #4…with a Story Starter!

First of all, Happy First day of Spring! It feels like an ice apocalypse here in Ontario – poor Mother Nature probably got her heart broken by an Ontarian, and now she’s taking it out on all of us – but, I checked online and it’s supposed to get better.

It’s supper time for me, and therefore I’m hungry. How fitting would it be for me to post a photo of food? How about 2 photos? Today’s post contains a bonus! How awesome is that? However, in the spirit of being inspirational, I’m going to turn these photos into a learning experience.

How many times have we gone to the supermarket and impulse bought items, only to throw them away a few days later? I used to do that, not all the time, but quite a few. Let me tell you, now I only buy what I know I’m going to eat and it has worked for me. You have to remember how luck you are for having the means to eat at least, one meal a day. Even if you aren’t sure of what to buy, just buy what you know you will eat on that day, and then go to the supermarket the following day. It also gives you an excuse to get out of the house. Preferably, walk there and enjoy your city/town 🙂

If you need some ideas for snacks, here’s a list of my favourite ones: My Top 10 snacks.

My top 10 favourite snacks

I’m a bit (just a bit) picky when it comes to food, but one thing I love is snacking! Whether I snack while I watch a movie, to satisfy cravings, or to stop myself from drooling over Robert Downey Jr, snacking is quick and fun (at least to me). So, here’s my top 10 list. I was going to write 5, but I didn’t want a snack to attack me during my sleep feel like a leftover (haha get it?). Well, of course I can’t include every single snack I like, but here are the ones I like to indulge in the most, in no particular order:

~~~

1. Anything that has nuts and peanuts (thank goodness I have no allergies). This includes trail mix.

2. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and frozen blueberries

3. Popcorn (not microwaved)

4. Nutella and chocolate(when I have a sugar craving)

5. Broccoli, corn, and peas mixed together

6. Cheese and crackers

7. Cheerios with almond or coconut milk

8. Boiled eggs

9. Greek Yogurt

10. Honey

What do YOU like to eat as a snack?

Of course! The world only rules me when I want to eat an unhealthy snack!

Pistachios and Cashews

Crunchy, salty, unsalted,

munching filling snacks

with salt from the sea

such delight

my hunger has been beaten twice.

~

Savouring each piece,

cracking others with your teeth

perhaps the use of your fingernails are required

salty snacks are my desire.

~

They blend together in my paladar

until reaching such a thirst

unsatisfactory amounts of water

to wash down such a feast
