Do you know that feeling? You just had dinner and not long after you're hungry again! You wonder what you should eat, you open up the fridge and grab something. It might be healthy, it might be junk. It happened to me a few days ago. And I'm usually super aware of what I eat but I ended up with a pack of prawn crackers (kroepoek) and I finished it all by myself. B.t.w. they are not very healthy, just fattening, just like crisps. And while I was eating it I knew exactly why this happened! It could have been avoided too. And once you are aware of it, you too can avoid situations like this. Here's what happened.
My husband was in the mood for risotto and decided to prepare it himself. It was a lazy Sunday anyway so I was actually really happy about hubby doing the grocery shopping AND the cooking! The risotto was delicious, with shrimps and garlic, we ate the lot and hubby was happy and proud of his cooking skills. However, some important ingredients were missing: No veg! No salad. Nothing else but the rice really that 'comes out of the ground or grows on trees'. So ofcourse my stomach reacted to it a few hours later: hungry! The prawn crackers looked so tempting so I gave in. I honestly understand how other people feel when they open up a pack of crisps, sweets, chocolate, or whatever they fancy. Once you take one bite you're done! The food industry is really good at understanding our taste buds.
One very easy way to avoid situations like this is just simply: add veg to your meals!!! It will make you feel full for longer and will thank you for giving it what it needs. Bon apetit :o)
