I’m having weird hunger today! During Chemistry when my breakfast usually first starts to wear off (about 3 hours after eating) I felt much less hungry than usual and thought “wow, I’m going to have to write a post called ‘In Defense of Steel Cut Oats’” but then 15 minutes into Physiology my stomach started growling REALLY loud and I got much more hungry than usual at that time! An hour later, I sat down with my lunch, which despite being the same number of nutrients and food groups as usual, felt really small and not filling. I’m debating going for a hunt for more food on campus! Or I might get hot tea because I am freezing (and so was my lunch for sitting in my trunk all morning) and it might just be since I started lunch too hungry my satiety cues just need more time to react.
Could this be PMS related
I’m repeating foods this week because they were so good!
Mashed navy beans with a little olive oil, cucumber, dijon mustard and spinach leaves on ciabatta (it was smaller than it looks!)
Pumpkin Yogurt with some almonds and Kashi H2H
And a Pink Lady apple -
From above -
As normal, this lunch was about 540 kcal, 17 grams of fiber, and 20 grams of protein.
Going to go find a way to warm up and get full!

30 minutes later…..hunger is gone! I think I was just too hungry for lunch!! I also had a hot Apricot Green Tea - the panacea for all troubles.
