Tapped Out and Favorite Snacks
Ciao, happy healers! I have been having a terribly difficult time becoming motivated to prepare for my policy final. Something about the DRY, snore of a topic, this physical and mental exhaustion I have been experiencing lately (perhaps, period related, but my period is ending), the opiates, and the pain have been a cocktail of a disaster for graduate school finals. This semester has been filled with many ups and downs concerning school issues, new medications and dosages, crappy doctors, in addition to the rollercoaster that is living with RSD on an every day, regular basis, and I just feel tapped out, if you will. That is the best way to explain it. I'm tired.
So, concerning "snacks," things that I consume when I am craving something other than fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds, which are 95% of my diet, this is what I munch on:
Natural granolas, and my new favorite, A-MAZ-ING snack, Two Mom's in the Raw Goji Berry Raw Granola. It is pricey but well worth it, in my opinion. The ingredients are pure, super healthy, antioxidant rich, and delicious! The taste ROCKS! It is made of mostly fruits, nuts, and seeds, so it isn't venturing far from the majority of the foods I consume, but it's something different in terms of taste.
Go Raw flax snacks are so lovely! Below, you will see the chocolate version and the pizza flavored version. Both amazing, but the chocolate is my favorite. It really hits the spot for chocolate addicts like myself!
Green and Black's organic dark chocolate is my favorite chocolate. I have tried the cherry version, and O-M-G, it is delicious! Dried cherry pieces are in the middle of the chocolate bar, and the tart and sweet combo is to die for!
Lara Bars and Raw Revolution Bars are raw, dehydrated bars that are great to throw in your purse on the go. Loves them! I have tried many raw bars, and Raw Revolution are honestly the best. Some of them taste rather repulsive.
Raweos and Raw Cashew Cheeze Sticks are some of the special snacks I purchase every so often at my favorite local natural market that caters to the raw foodist! These are the ones I happen to have in the fridge at the time.
