Spicing it up

Breakfast this morning was something you’ve seen many times before. It NEVER gets old.


But my afternoon snack was a quasi-rarity.


I keep yogurt rare because of the sugar content.

For dinner tonight, I spiced up an old favorite…Mama Pea’s chickpeas!

Instead of using the pumpkin spices, I used 2 tsp of curry powder for a different effect. Sort of a sweet and spicy?


They tasted amazing but of course you can’t go wrong with chickpeas in my opinion.

To continue the chickpea theme, I had some pita and hummus on the side (x2). I also had some mixed veggies from the freezer.


Today was a great day of eating for me. Once again I find myself really thankful for my self-imposed 9 o’clock cut off time.

But I also nixed the mindless nighttime snacking by giving myself a job to do…I finally put away all the Christmas stuff!

If you are a nighttime snacker like me, what tricks do you use to keep yourself from overdoing it?

  1. Isn’t it funny how being tired and bored is such a big factor in night time snacking?!

  2. Brushing my teeth usually helps me stop snacking!
