Mornings are harder than afternoons

Monday, July 15, 2019

I’m hungry in the morning. The afternoon and evening is often OK. If I calculate, there are more hours of ‘not eating’ between lunch and the evening meal, but it’s really the morning after breakfast that is hard for me. Around 10:30 until noon, I am really hungry and I need to find ways to distract myself. Maybe I need to change my breakfast. I usually have a smoothie (milk, oats, yogurt, berries). It’s very healthy and it has a lot of fiber. I think I will have to start packing snacks for the mornings. I’m worried about my cholesterol, it was borderline at my last check-up. Maybe hummus, or peanut butter. I’ll check Spark to see if I can find some other ideas.

    I find smoothies are not as filling as a lot of other choices. They may be healthy, but the fact that they have taken away a lot of our bodies work to 'pulverize' the food, means it goes through out systems more quickly. If you had oats, berries and Greek Yoghurt in a bowl it would probably last you a lot longer. Maybe you need to add a little more to your breakfast as well to make it a bit bigger. Maybe add a hard boiled egg (except not to the bowl with the rest LOL) or a small banana that is slightly on the greenish side, you may find it holds you over a lot longer until lunch. I find that bananas when they are totally ripe, as in little black spots starting to appear on the skin, don't fill me at all, but when the tips and bottoms have a green tinge, they really do the trick. It is to do with the starch. The green-tinged ones have more resistant starch which means it takes longer to digest. Kris
