Let's just have some real talk for a minute, ok? I'm gonna tell it like it is....sometimes, I don't have time to eat. I know, I said it. I always get annoyed when I hear other people say things like that, because really, how can you not have time to eat? It takes 2 minutes to throw something together! But, I've turned into one of those people who is too busy most of the day to eat.
As a mom, of course, I make sure my kids are fed. But generally, while the kids are eating, I'm doing something else that I can only get done while they are occupied. Like dishes. Or vacuuming. Or dusting. Or laundry. Or cleaning the bathrooms. You get the idea.
Well, then, comes the hangry part. I get hangry. You know, you are hungry and then it leads to angry. Hungry + Angry= Hangry. I get super grumpy and start snapping at the kids or the husband over really small things that normally wouldn't bother me, but when I'm hangry - everyone best watch out because I'm really not me when I'm hungry! I really don't mean to get the hangry point, like it's never my intention to not feed myself at all through the day, but there are some days that are so jam packed that it just happens.
So, my solution is that I've started keeping SNICKERS® on hand. In my kitchen. In my diaper bag. In my purse.
If I have been go - go -going all day without eating I will grab one of my SNICKERS® stash and have that to tide me over until I can sit down and actually have a meal. It gives me a boost to my blood sugar, keeps the rumbly tummy at bay and lifts my grumpy mood making me a happy camper once again. The other day, I had a crazy busy day, so while I was out running errands, I stopped by Walgreens to pick up a few SNICKERS® to replenish my stock.
During the day, I keep a pot of coffee on and will grab a SNICKERS if I'm feeling the need for a little boost but don't have time right then to sit and eat. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's day looks like this most of the time...right?!
