I have a bit of a problem.
I’ll call it the tea-snacking-cycle.
It happens to me ALL the time…and I really do mean that.
I get home from school – I’m tired (cycling 7 miles a day isn’t the most energising thing ever), I’m probably a bit annoyed at the pedestrians who think the road = sidewalk, and drivers who think cyclists don’t mind screeching to a halt so they can turn in front of you and save 5 seconds of their journey time.
Oh and I’m hungry.
I’ll make a snack or whatever, and boil the kettle to make some tea – the aim being to reach a point where I both have a cup of tea, and my food. Can you sense the problem?
Kettles take a while to boil…
I’ve normally at least half finished my food once the tea is made. That’s one problem.
Then comes the second, do I go get more food? Or do I wait until an actual meal time? Ugh.
Yeah, there seems to be an obvious solution to the problem – make the tea, then get the food, but I think my brain is working against me and just automatically makes me get the food first. Damn you brain.
One thing I’ve found though is that if I have these caramel peanut butter cups around, I can normally only manage to eat one; they’re so crazy rich and decadent, it’s pretty much solving my tea-snacking-cycle problem!
Make sure you have your sassy pants on when you’re ready to make these: They’re full of fibre, healthy fats, antioxidants, deliciousness and some protein too! They’re also vegan and thus, dairy-free!
