This is the post in which we say goodbye. We’re both leaving our respective jobs at Beliefnet, and so it’s time to step away from the blog. So, this is the post in which we say goodbye…by saying thank you. Thank you to you, the readers, for clicking and visiting and sharing the myriad ways […]
I’ve been making an effort not to reach for the 4 o’clock cookie. For a while there, I was either scrounging around the office for a sugary boost, or getting myself to a coffee shop for a sweetness injection. But lately I’ve been doing something revolutionary (for me). Actually having non-sugar snacks on hand so I don’t crash at 3 or 4. Janice Taylor, our divine weight loss blogger, has a terrific post on this very phenom. She suggests sunflower seeds from a shell. She says they’ve got vitamin E, magnesium, and selenium.
I’ve been relying on almonds, no nutritional schlubs themselves, with manganese, vitamin E, other good things like tryptophan. Janice doesn’t suggest this, but I’ve also got a chocolate bar on hand for when nuts just seem smug and irrelevant. But I’m making sure it’s an all-natural, dark, organic bar with mint. Somehow the mint disinclines me to eat the whole thing in one sitting because, well, meh, mint. And the fact that’s it’s high quality makes it also satisfying. Weird. But it’s working–haven’t had a cookie break in months. You? What are you munching on today?
