Now that I am exercising regularly, my appetite has understandably increased. It’s a struggle not to overeat without feeling miserably famished.
For you woman out there, here’s a rotten fact. Because of that b!7@% we call biology, our brain chemistry triggers hunger proportionate to the calories just burned in case we become pregnant. Can you believe that? I am sure just about everyone living with modern luxury knows how much faster you can ingest 500 calories than you can burn them off.
And that burns me up! But I digress…
I admit that I’m no vegetarian. So the easiest, cheap protein snacks are boiled eggs. I cannot believe that never occurred to me. Another option I have been enjoying is, actually, baked tofu sticks. They are easy to make, and I found them quite tasty spread with a little mix of peanut butter and jelly since the tofu took on almost the texture of bread.
Here’s a recipe I’m thinking of trying, in case you’re interested:

Happy snacking! And please let me know if you have any tasty suggestions.
