I love to munch while I work. Snacking while typing can have horrible side effects. My ass has been known to double in size while I write a couple hundred pages. In the interest of saving the springs in my chair and the seams of my jeans, I’ve been experimenting with non-fattening snacks.
First of all, it’s gotta be salty. Roll a carrot in salt and I’d probably be fine except the salt won’t stick to the carrot. Baked potato chips sounded like the perfect alternative except I find they’re only tasty when slathered in Heluva Good French Onion dip.
Lately I’ve been consuming lots of pretzels. After a while it’s a lot like sucking on sand.
I’m off to write chapter 10 of Ghost Dusters 4 and plow my way through a bucket of baked crackers.
So what do you crunch when you wanna munch but don’t want to increase your jean size?
