Last night I learned something significant about my relationship with food. I am a serious night time snacker. I work for a company in a different timezone, and don't get off of work until around 10pm. After work, while I'm winding down, I snack. I think between 10pm and whenever I fall asleep is probably when I have done the most damage to my daily calorie intake. I literally pig OUT during that two hour snack attack. I'll eat chips, ice cream, chocolate bars, fruit, bread with jam, while I'm sitting in front of the TV trying to numb out the day.
So, last night on my 1st day of the raw food challenge, I found myself sitting on the couch trying to figure out what the hell would satisfy my snack cravings. And honestly, nothing in the house was going to do it. So, I drank another glass of water. And I had to stave off cravings and snack temptations until I finally broke down and convinced myself that an apple with a little salt would be a tasty snack. And of course, it was!
This morning I went in search of some local produce. The Daily Harvest is a new produce and flower market that just opened up, so I was hopeful. Maybe it's too early in the season to get any of our good old local grown produce, but the Daily Harvest was a big let down. I wound up at Publix where everything looked better and was cheaper.
Tonight I'm making guacamole in preperation for the late night munchies.
