are you a “snacker”?

 

do you like to stroll around in your house, looking for something delicious you could put into your mouth?

are there some kinds of foods around that keep on calling “eat me, eat me!”, everytime you pass them?

do you prefer several smaller meals over the mainstream 3 big meals?

 

– if so: welcome to the club! 

you are a “SNACKER”.

 

maybe you’re asking yourself right now: “oh my goodness..- is it cool to be a >snacker<?”

well. i can only speak for myself, but in my opinion, it is very cool!😉

 

why?

 

you can snack your way through your day and eat much more various, different & interesting food than you would if you weren’t a snacker.

another reason is, you never get too hungry and won’t ever feel too full.

also, it’s healthier, to eat smaller, balanced meals over the day than 3 huge portions.

 

 

 

so, let’s get snacky!

here come the TOP 3 of  my fav. snacks..

 

1.)

 

 

this is one of the easiest things to make, and still it’s kinda my all time favourite: APPLE-BITES, topped with some cinnamon and pure lemon-juice. healthy and tasty!

 

by the way, it could be said that fruit is my favorite snack, in general. “FAST FOOD“, packed with vitamins! yay.

 

 

2.)

another “all time classic”!

 

TRAIL MIX, in austria known as “students-food“, which is a mixture of nuts such as almonds, cashews, pecans etc., and raisins. there are various things to additionally pack into trail-mixes, like seeds or dried cranberries.

 

this snack is loaded with energy and taste, contains healthy fats and minerals. it’s good for your heart and contains substances that perfectly work against stress. now we all know why it’s also known as “students-food”!😉

 

 

3.)

i knooooow. these little friends are not really filmstar-beauties. they’re not that photogenic, but nevertheless i love them.

DRIED FIGS  are known to be very healthy and provide you with good energy. they taste very sweet and have to be stored in the fridge, unless you eat all of them at once (me? yeah, i know i’m strange).

 

 

have you noticed? i just mentioned sweet snacks. as said before, i also highly appreciate every kind of fruit. think: oranges, bananas, peaches, grapes, pineapples and so on. fresh, sweet, cheap & uncomplicated!🙂

 

 

but, from time to time i also long for savory snacks. 

personally, i like hot & spicy tofu – slices, raw veggies, roasted beans/chickpeas and huge salads. 

i could go on like this forever!😉

 

 

what about your fav. snacks? 

if you want, leave a comment and tell me your preferences when it comes to snacks!

i’m curious!🙂

 

 

now, time for some musical snack!

some days ago my good friend L. & me did a small recording session of a song by jessie j. if anyone is interested in the outcome, click the link to see the video of our cover version on youtube!

    perfect to combine with raw vegetable & spread cheese (i know it’s not vegan)…

    and finally number 3: PEAS!!

    believe me it feels so weird to sit on the couch, watching tv..(normal situation but 90 % of the people have a chips bag in their hands)..holding a bowl full of peas in my hands. sometimes i add salt and a little bit of butter to make them tastier..😉

    god…i should get my own blog. i’m really gettin into it..

    1. aaaaw we really seem to match, you’re right🙂

      do it! open your own blog, it’s so much fun! (or is it just me who’s gettin’ weirder all the time?;))
      no, i’m serious. why not?🙂

      omg i love your peas-snack! great idea, why haven’t i thought of that before?🙂 (i picture you sittin’ there with this huge bowl full of peas..so lovely! :))

      and don’t worry about the “not vegan”-tag. i would never start to judge anyone or even roll my eyes, cuz it is a decision that takes time and a lot of thinking! btw, i love you and i totally respect everyones diet, as long as he/she will respect mine!🙂 more, you seem to be a very healthy snacker, which is very cool and extraordinary!

      so, do it, get your own blog!
      i’d be honored to be your first reader:)
