The Modern Munchies

Avocados in their own right are pretty amazing, but eating avocados (on toast), while you’re toasty, is next level tasty. Not all strains induce hungry for the ultimate snack, but purple punch sure does it for me. What strains have you gravitating towards the kitchen?

Today I opted for avocados, strawberries and chocolate; weird, I know, but I’m trying to move away from the concept of ‘munchies’ as just being junk. Most people hear the term munchies and still think, ‘stoner stereotype,’ binge eating chips on the couch, for me the munchies are much more. Smoking herb helps me sustain my appetite, also phrased, I like getting the munchies, before I chow down.  

On that health note, listening to my body has been my main ‘self’ mission, so what makes me feel good, is what I try to snack on. Lots of veggies and fruits, but also pasta, goods mac n’ cheese, with a crumble crispy top. 

Lately, I’ve been enjoying avocado toast at restaurants, just for fun. Few places prepare it better than I do, on well done sourdough bread, with extra pepper. But I did try a caprese style avo toast, that was amazing.

  1. I crave peanut butter so a spoon of PB or PB mixed with an organic chocolate hazelnut spread (like nutella but they make it now with better ingredients) is my go-to. The Noosa brand of yogurt is really creamy and like eating pudding. They make a pumpkin pie flavor (to die for) and an apple pie flavor that really hit the spot. It does have higher sugar than other yogurts so I save this for dessert. Adding some ground flax seed can give you extra health benefits and adds texture and flavor (or chia seeds!). I also sprinkle ground flax seeds on ice cream. Its like toasted coconut but high in omega 3. The Yoplait yogurts with the red label (avoid the ‘no-sugar’ product), flavors in key lime pie, boston cream pie, orange cream, and others fun desserty flavors offer a really great healthy snack that hits the sweet spot without expanding your waistline. As women, we need the extra calcium and a nice quality yogurt with fruit or granola mixed in makes a great munchie for evening dessert.
