We had left-over Coq Au Vin for dinner, so I have no new recipes. But I can tell you what my go-to snack is.
I am a teacher, which generally means I eat and pee on a bell schedule. I need to be up, dressed, functioning and at school before 7 am. I am not a morning person, and no matter how hard I try to rewire the system I just can’t seem to manage. Ever since I was in high school I get a twinge of morning sickness (maybe PCOS related?) so I generally shy away from breakfast. So my mornings look like a mad rush and a quickly made espresso shoved into a travel mug.
When I finally do get a chance to eat something there are usually at least 3 or 4 students in my room…ALWAYS. So I never have a chance during the day to sit down to a proper meal. But stuffed in my desk drawer is my pre-made snack bag, and I manage to munch on that whenever I get a chance. Nuts have been shown to actually help with PCOS and they are high in protein so they made the perfect snack for that satiated feeling.
Mrs. Clemmerbottom’s Snack Attack:
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup raw pecans
2 cups roasted and salted pumpkin seeds (the green ones)
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup peanuts or cashews
1 package of Craisins or raisins,
1 package of dried apples or dried cherries.
So I just put them all into a big ziplock bag and have it ready at all times.
Occasionally I will have the foresight to bring something to eat, or if I squeeze my way between the giant hulks of teenage lunch-eaters I can find a salad. But most of the time I can’t be bothered and this at least can get me through the majority of my day.
