mykidsteacher Posted June 19, 2013 Share Posted June 19, 2013 Need some ideas on what to add to lunch to help me make it through the afternoon without eating. I'm fine till 3pm hits, and then I need something. Some of this is probably head hunger, and some of it is that I get tired then and go looking for a pick me up. But I'm also willing to make a mini meal and eat it, so some of it is true hunger. Food for today to help troubleshoot: b--sausage/sweet potato/apple hash with a bowl of blueberries and strawberries with coconut cream on top on the side. (ate around 8am and felt full after eating and stayed with me just fine until lunch at 12:15 ish) l--big bowl full of zucchini noodles, broccoli slaw, a couple of green pepper strips chopped, 10 olives chopped, 1 cooked/diced chicken thigh and about 10 small shrimp. I drizzled olive oil over all, added a splash of lemon juice and some lemon pepper seasoning. When lunch time came, I was at a knitting group, so warmed it in the micro and then cut up 1/2 an avocado and tossed it in. Also had 1 apple slice, a couple cubes of pineapple and about 1/2 cup of watermelon. And now it's almost 3 and I feel like I need to eat again, even though my stomach actually feels full still. Supper isn't until late (we live on a farm, so tend to eat around 7:30-8 pm because I can't get anyone in the house earlier than that. I'll never make it 4 more hours without eating. So what am I missing? Is it just head hunger and I need to push through it? Happens pretty much every day. Usually I dive into the bag of almonds. But I suspect they are bloating for me, and somewhat of a no breaks food too. So I'm really trying hard to stay out of them. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
