Writing: What’s Your Favourite Writing Snack?

Everyone eats. We all need fuel to power our brains, and brains are sugar hungry, burning up half of your body’s glucose energy. That’s why students pulling an all-nighter to finish that assignment survive on Skittles and chocolate swilled down with caffeinated pop, or a cafe mocha (my personal choice).

Unfortunately, in my middle age, my body rebels if I scoff copious amounts of processed sugar. I get jittery and fatter than I already am. But I have discovered a solution. It satisfies my sweet tooth and isn’t calorie heavy. It even has loads of vitamins, fibre, calcium, and protein. I throw this together when my brain is flagging.

  • 1 kiwi fruit – diced
  • 5 fresh strawberries – sliced
  • A handful of red seedless grapes
  • A handful of low sugar granola
  • A sprinkle of chia seeds
  • 2 heaped dessert spoons of Greek yoghurt – the full fat variety, low or zero fat versions sub in sugar for taste.
  • A drizzle of honey
Om nom nom…

If I mix it all up together, the chia seeds and granola absorb some of the moisture from the yoghurt and it sets almost like cheesecake. Full fat Greek yoghurt is pretty firm anyway. I love it, and often have it for lunch or an afternoon snack when I need that extra energy boost.

Go on, try it, I dare you!

    1. I have a thing for these mini rocky road bites my supermarket makes fresh in their bakery. I don’t know what they do to them, but they are a perfect conglomerate of chocolate, glace cherries, sultanas, mini marshmallows, and crunchie cookie pieces. I buy them once a month as a treat and they are gone in 2 days.
