Shopping and Snacking

Raise your hand if you snack when you shop.

Anyone? Everyone?

I’ve heard talk of eating a meal before you shop to sate your hunger and control your impulse to buy snacks while shopping, but honestly…it’s not worth it. Just get the snack. Don’t make it too unhealthy, but get the snack or else you’ll regret it. Today, I went to 2 grocery stores, a bookstore, and Walgreens. At the first grocery store, I saw a box of tomato basil crackers on the clearance shelf. Nothing wrong with them, so I bought them and enjoyed them. At the next grocery store, I bought a black cherry soda, and I actually forgot about it, so I had a nice treat when I got home. It will make you happier and feel more like an adult. And look at it this way: the more you shop, the more calories you burn.

Does not apply to shopping online.

  1. That’s a very interesting thought, jacob. I always feel bad when I snack but I do it nonetheless. I will never get rid of my muffin top anyways so ah well 🙃

  2. Oh I snack while shopping all the time! And I enjoy them too… I just don’t pretend that I didn’t buy the snack or that I didn’t enjoy it…so I work it off every morning but as long as I work out and do my regular dose of healthy eating too, I have no qualms in feeding my snacky mind 😉
