I have a difficult time not snacking in the afternoons. But I have taken a tip from our friends across the ocean, tea time. When I just need something, I brew a cup of flavored hot tea. There are several varieties to choose from. It helps calm that snacky feeling and gets me back on track. 469
If you are like me and you like sweet tea, try using a teaspoon of honey, splenda or a small amount of fruit juice to sweeten.
hi all. i find that i was eating too many snacks with my tea drinks so i have now trained myself to wait till my tea is cool enough to drink all at one time and have a smaller snack or even half or quater of a cookie so one cookie lasts me all day instead of eating one cookie with every cup of tea.
Pour boiling water over old fashioned oats and let it sit a bit. When you come back to it, it will be cooked, If you add some raisins or dried cranberries with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg before adding the water, it's especially tasty!
It's a good time to heat extra water to make morning black or green tea.
