I stress-eat, and I know it. I am an editor, so I am frequently "on deadline," which is usually stressful. Which means I usually eat. Stress-eating for me means junk food, typically snacky foods that I can eat while I work. Chips are a favorite, as are candy bars. And, soft drinks.
But, I've found that if I bring healthy snacks from home, especially on deadline days, I'll choose those snacks rather than something from the vending machine. And, to ward off the soft drinks, I bring iced tea to work. We have a refrigerator with ice, etc. So, I can treat myself to something more than water without adding on the calories.
My healthier snacks include:
Strips of red bell pepper
Do you have any ideas for healthy snacks to replace the junk food I used to eat?
