I discovered that when I wake up from my afternoon nap I'm hungry-very! I have a banana, but dont feel satiated. Nuts and me are OK in the mornings, but as the day wears on they give me heartburn. So that's out of the question. I've gone thro the recipe index...but nothing eye catching. Mostly sweet stuff, not much savouries. There's a gap of about 2 hrs before dinner time..and I find myself contemplating puffed rice & rice flakes. My quota for rice is once a week...and I dont want to mess up with grains.

Any ideas please? Something I can prepare and keep...finger food like. No carrot & celery sticks please !!!

I get hungry about that time too, and have found that small amounts of protein work pretty well to keep me from devouring everything in sight.

One of my favorite snacks is to take leftover pot roast, steak, lamb or turkey sausage, cut them into bite size pieces, heat them up (if desired--room temperature is good too) then wrap them in some fresh romaine or spinach leaves. Yummy! You get the protein with a good-for-you veggie too. A few of these will satisfy your hunger without filling you up too much. A little wheat-free tamari makes a nice dipping sauce

Hard boiled eggs work well too, if you don't want meat. I sprinkle mine with a little hot sauce or wasabi to give them a bit of a kick.

I do much like what brighid does I am my hungriest at that time and so normally eat my dinner then and then have a lighter snack later on

Perhaps homemade sweet potato fries, a baked sweet potato, some seaweed sheets or shrouds, green tea or compliant tea, a small freshly squeezed vegetable or vegetable/fruit juice.

Exercise is a good alternative if you're hungry; it will hopefully keep your mind away from eating and it will help revitalize you.

Maybe try a big glass of water and then wait 15 minutes and see if you are still hungry.

I eat my biggest meal of the day around 2 or 3 pm, which sees me through until my light supper at around 7 pm.

Ok folks thanks for all the replies! I know the mantra "when hungry, eat protein" and since meat is not an option and I'm quite upto my neck with eggs (6 a day)...I was thinking what I could do. Water doesnt help Don...

So this is what neccessity, the mother of all inventions make me do:

3 handfuls of black eyed beans soaked and cooked with 3 changes of water, well drained. (The bloatedness from the last adventure was bcoz of a bad batch of beans).

10 almonds, soaked over night. Wash well and drain. I didnt remove the skin.

2 table spoons pumpkin seeds fried in ghee.

1" piece of ginger.

Set oven to 180 deg C for 40 mins (mine is a De longhi oven toaster), and get the following ready in the meantime:

Keep one table spoon beans & the pumpkin seeds in reserve. Bung everything else into a blender and blend till smooth-you'll get a humus like mixture. Careful with adding water.

Remove the mixture, add chilli powder (or any spice powder you fancy), salt, chopped coriander leaves (or parsley) and the reserved beans & seeds plus a table spoon ghee.

Slightly grease a cookie sheet and spoon out the above mixture. Bake till done.

The taste was really nice. One "cookie" with a cup of green tea and a banana was sufficient to see me thro till dinner 2 hrs later. I made about 8-10 cookies which will last, hopefully for a week.

Play around with the ingredients. It would've tasted better if I had deep fried the batter (like pakoras, the Indian snack)...but didnt want to overdo the oh-I'm-an-O-I-can-digest-far more fats-than-A'sB's&AB's.

Alia, I exercise religiously for 2hrs everyday at the crack of dawn. At 3pm my snooze button kicks in, and phleese,phleese I must sleep and wake up and eat something. No exercise phleese

So there, try it and see if you like it!

That sounds amazing, Cheffy!    You have quite a flair for flavor combinations.

Thanks for sharing your interesting recipe concoction with us.  

As long as this snack works for you, I believe that is ultimately what is important.  It has a mix of sweet, savory, fat, starch, and protein.  It's portable and it seems to go well with your tea time.
