I hate to be hungry for a long period. Who does? If you know me well, you can attest that I’m a nibbler. I’m like a traveling pantry. I’m not leaving home without some form of filling bites to munch on. This move enables me from indulging in the wrong type of foods.

Sometimes, I do feel like a squirrel. They are always seeking out and nibbling on bits. Come to think of it, eh, they often try to be in my proximity. They and those birds are quite smart. They see me reach for those nuts and I’m happy to share a few with them.

But anyway guys, I stave off those hungry pangs by packing in small zip lock bags:

  • dried fruits and nuts (unsalted)
  • ripe banana or any fruit
  • apple along with a dollop of peanut butter
  • water

These types of healthy and filling foods aid me to keep my blood sugar in check because they keep me satiated for hours until to get to a substantial meal.  Moreover, they save me a few dollars because I try to prep them in advance. I do this  by purchasing bigger quantities like nuts and pack same in baggies.

I never leave home without ‘good old’ water. A few sips, provides me with the hydration I need throughout the day while I’m away from home. The potassium-rich banana is also very filling. I can never give up my fiber-rich apple bites. Sometimes, I pair same with a dollop of peanut butter.

No one should go hungry. A few of these food moves keep me in check and make me a happy camper.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
