08:56 pm - Rule 1 of snacking

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I need to remember to stick to rule 1 of snacking: Never eat snack foods straight out of the container. Pour some out into a bowl or plate and eat those.

I thought Rule 1 of Snacking was “Don't talk about snacking”? Maybe I'm confused.

Also. Never eat snacks bigger than your head.

You mean there's a serving size smaller than the whole bag?

If your favorite snack comes in a 100-calorie pack, try those.

Pour some out into a bowl or plate and eat those.

But then you not only *still* have an empty bag/box to throw away, you also have a large bowl that needs cleaned afterwards. Seems kinda wasteful, really.

Plus a bag you can fold up and put a big Chip Clip on if you have to go do something else, those don't work nearly as well with bowls...

Nonono, I'm talking about pouring a small serving of chips out of a big bag. (And then folding up the rest of the bag with a Chip Clip.) Otherwise, I end up eating more than one serving out of the bag, by losing track of how much I've eaten.

You didn't eat a 20 pound bag of Oreos in one sitting AGAIN did you?

The last time, we had to get your stomach pumped, and we got enough Stuf back to mortar a small brick wall with.

Wasn't me! You must be thinking of someone else. Like that squirrel you hang out with.
