When I am hungry, Whether in the office in the afternoon –
lunch has long since slipped down and the end of the day is not yet in sight –
after a long run, skiing, hiking, or shopping:
While you’re hungry, it could appear like the arena is conspiring in opposition to you.
Whilst you’re trying your quality to stick to a healthy eating plan,
all people else continually seem to be devouring something delicious.
And it’s even worse whilst you’re bored. It’s worth remembering that studies have proven starvation doesn’t honestly worsen over the years.
It does hit a peak, however, then it starts to subside once more.
In the meantime, right here’s a listing of distracting and profitable things to maintain you occupied at the same time as you’re hungry and bored
a small snack is needed, otherwise, save yourself if you can:-)
It should of course be tasty, healthy, filling, energizing, easy and quick to prepare, suitable for in between, and varied.
Phew, not that easy at all.
Fruit salad quickly turns brown, vegetable sticks get boring in the long run, nuts somehow also not a real meal.
Or there is simply a lack of time and inclination to think about every single morning to have the perfect snack with you.
Energy bars or fruit slices from the supermarket are obvious.
No wonder: the selection is huge and they all promise wonderful things:
protein intake, omega-3, athlete-friendly, energy boosters … it’s unbelievable.
The fact that these mostly overpriced ready-made bars are sugar and thus calorie bombs is of course left out of the customer communication.
The problem with this is that the insulin level rises rapidly, which makes you feel full and fit for a short time but quickly falls back into the basement.
Ergo: We are hungry and will be divas again!
Nevertheless, bars are of course perfect as a snack:
handy, non-perishable, and versatile.
But why buy when I can prepare the healthy power foods myself?
It’s faster and easier than you think and, above all, you know exactly what’s inside.
And best of all:
The bars can be packed in aluminum foil in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Just take it out, take it with you, enjoy it when you’re hungry,
and be happy that you’ve once again conjured up something delicious yourself:-)
A little tip: Cut different sizes for different “Diva” gradations 🙂
Here are a few recipe ideas for different requirements when I am hungry
(each for one tray / approx. 16 bars)
You mix 3 eggs with 100 grams of oat or spelled flakes and 350 grams of low-fat quark.
30 grams of chopped almonds, hazelnuts, or pistachios give the bar a lot of crunches as well as fiber and healthy fats.
A few dried cranberries add a nice color and a slight sweetness.
The mixture is put on the tray and baked at 170 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
Immediately cut into the desired shape and let cool down.
