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.
