The pleasure of eating while reading is going to put pounds on your hips. If you must snack raid the orchard rather than the pantry. I know growing up on the farm feels like its more effort than it's worth but once you start preparing your own meals you're going to realize just how LUCKY you are to have the fresh vegetables. Slow down and learn to enjoy the flavors of vegetables.
And while you're at it start drinking eight glasses of water daily and drink more tea.
