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.
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.
