why do we snack?
we want to eat something that we enjoy, we are craving something a little bit sweet or we need the energy
.. ✅i think it’s because
the body is telling you to boost your nutrient profile, so when you snack make sure you choose something healthy and good for you. if you don't, you may not satisfy that craving, and you may end up feeling worse (sluggish, regretful, unsatisfied) and worst of all- still hungry !
how to make the healthier snack choice
1. choose a snack high in fibre - eg it contains whole grains, seeds such as chia seeds, vegetables or fruit.
2. make sure its not high in sugar and preservatives. read the label check the sugar content on the nutritional panel.
3. when looking at the fat. avoid saturated and trans fats and ensure your snack has a good dose of healthy f*t (seeds, nuts, avocados). 4. protein in snacks is going to be important to help your body feel a little full, and satisfied.
5. c a r b o h y d r a t e s when your looking for a snack, its because your body is craving energy. carbs are the bodies first source of fuel, giving you an instant pick up. (oats, dried fruit, wholegrain crackers, bananas). 5. avoid buying snacks... make your own!

I learned something with this bake. day 2 of pumpkin pie is so much yummier. the crust is a little more infused with the filling. and the filling is somehow better 🤷 this crust is a combination of @breadtopia sonora white wheat home-milled in my mockmill @wolfgangsmockmill and almond flour from @bobsredmill the filling is canned pumpkin and the recipe off the back of the can. for real. no variations...very unlike me. i included the second photo so you can see "the other side" of my food photography haha. third pic is one of the two pies.

Do you always choose whole grains? all grains come in process (aka “enriched”) or whole (as nature intended) forms. grains are general composed of three parts, the bran (aka the outer shell), the germ (kind of like the nucleus of a cell which has most of the vitamins and minerals) and the endosperm (which is mostly just empty carbs. refining a grain removes the bran and the germ, leaving only the endosperm. without the bran and germ, about 25% of a grain's protein is lost, and are greatly reduced in at least seventeen key nutrients. looking for “whole grains” is not just important when shopping for bread and rice but it can sometimes be a bit tricky. barley, for example, is sold in two forms: hulled and pearled. hulled barley has undergone minimal processing to remove only the inedible outer shell, leaving the bran and germ intact. pearled barley has had the layer of bran removed along with the hull. so, when shopping for barley, go for hulled. in general when shopping for grains, make sure to read all the fine print and get the most nutrition for your buck!
A karfiol lengyelesen egy végtelenül egyszerű, gyors és olcsó étel mégis zseniáliasan finom! a puha karfiolrózsák ropogós morzsába forgatva, tejföllel nyakon öntve, csipetnyi sóval, hmmm... én most csak annyit csavartam ezen a recepten hogy a teljes kiőrlésű házi (igen, én reszeltem) morzsát egy kevés tepertőmorzsán pirítottam! épp annyin, hogy ne legyen túl zsíros és csak egy icipicit lehessen érezni az ízét!
a karfiol egyébként szuperzöldség, tele van fontos vitaminokkal és ásványi anyagokkal. támogatja a méregtelenítést és a karfiolban rengeteg az #antioxidáns, tele van c-vitaminnal, béta-karotinnal, kaempferollal, kvercetinnel, rutinnal, fahéjsavval, és még sok mással, így a szervezetnek segít lelassítani az öregedési folyamatokat. 🍴😉👩 #cauliflower ala #poland#sourcream#wholegrain#hungariankitchen#vitamins#minetals#detox#vegetable#dinner#lunch#muti_miteszel#muti_miteszelfitt#eathealthy#foodstagram#food#foodporn #anry_menzája
