Hungry After Dinner

I absolutely hate it when I get hungry a few hours after I eat a meal. Was my meal just a snack?!

What did I eat? Well, I ate a meal I often eat that usually leaves me very satisfied.

So, I’m wondering if a skimpy (snack-like, perhaps) lunch caught up with me after dinner. I wasn’t hungry at lunch! Seems odd, but… If you can have a sleep deficit that catches up to you and crashes you out, then why not a hunger deficit that catches up to you eventually?

Ignoring the hunger is a bad idea. It just grows into an angry beast that will eat the pantry whole.

My plan is to eat a Greek yogurt. I’m over, but at least I’m not WAY over.


Frito Pie

My husband made Frito pie for dinner. I wasn’t in the frame of mind to care about points. After all, I was recovering from being irate with an attitude laden, uncooperative and disobedient child.

When all was ready, I was directed to my bowl with this breakout: “I measured each ingredient so you can track it.”

  • 2/3 c. Wolf Chili, no Beans
  • 1 oz. Low sodium Fritos
  • 1/3 c. Fiesta shredded cheese

I tracked it, after the fact and discovered this humble meal (a favorite!) is a whopping 17 points. Yikes!

Two lessons learned:

  • My husband is awesome!!
    (Ok. Already knew this, but he confirms this fact regularly.)
  • Frito pie needs some serious substitutions before going back on the menu.
