Do you snack while mylotting?

Mylotters, isn't it fun to post, comment, discuss and write here on myLot? While exploring topics, new and old, I sometimes don't realize how fast the time goes by. Sometimes, I'll munch on a snack while mylotting, like today I snacked on a dark chocolate mint protein bar. Tomorrow, I may snack on a coconut yogurt as I peruse myLot discussions.

I never eat while I am working at my computer and not even when I watch TV. If we eat while we are busy in other activities, we do not appreciate food and we eat too much.

@LadyDuck Ah, yes, that is a good way to keep the weight off -- Watch the diet. Snacking too much is not healthy. I always snack in small portions and not everyday. But, once in awhile my sweet tooth craves for a sweet dessert when I'm at the computer.

@Micmac I also have a sweet tooth, I usually get a dessert with my noon coffee.

@else34 I'm not from India. I buy the package frozen samosas at my supermarket and then baked them. I also make my own samosas from scratch with peas and potatoes, cumin for flavor, dash of lemon. So tasty! Great for a meal or snack.

@jstory07 Perhaps you have a snack while online when you're at home then? I don't mind snacking when I'm online. Only I have to be careful not to get any crumbs on the keyboard. Snacks can be messy when using the computer.

I don't snack while I am sitting in front of my computer because I can't control the quantity if I start eating. I have some chocolate bars as well, maybe I will add them in breakfast. Thanks for the reminder.

@AbbyGreenhill Yes, I don't blame you because snacking while on the computer can jammed the keyboard with food crumbs or it gets wet from spilled drinks. I am always using the monitor wipes to clean the smears on the keyboard when snacking online. It's a messy habit for sure but hard for me to resist the goodies.

Good to hear that@TiarasOceanView Snack moderately is the key to stay healthy. I eat small amounts of snacks, and not everyday, most of the time I don't snack after dinner, so I don't become over weight.

@allknowing Ah, good to be extra cautious to avoid pesky creatures who love to eat crumbs while snacking.. Ants usually come around looking for scraps of my snacks when it's summer. But they don't stop me from snacking while I'm here.

Depends, I'm usually here just before or after mealtime, so probably not a lot of snacking happening at my end. I don't often have snacks available in the house.

Sometimes I do snack - pretzels, yogurt, and almonds. I usually listen to the online radio that pays me and other paid activities. Might as well multi-task to get the most money out of the online paid activities.

@Micmac Thanks! Well, not all of them are healthy. I have some cookies called Acro Iris (from Mexico). They're one of my favorite. So that's probably not too good to eat. I usually try to keep it healthy as I need to lose weight.

@callarse1 I haven't tried acro Iris cookies. I've looked at a photo of the Acro Iris cookies and they appear to be delectable cookies with marshmallows and coconut.. looks delish! Yes, it's always healthy not to eat too much sugary foods to avoid extra calories.

I do not take any snack or drink etc. while working on PC. I wish to concentrate on mylot while I am here. If I am feeling hunger pangs and need to eat something, I will discontinue my PC activity and I'll eat first and then will start working on PC.

@dpk262006 Ah, yes, the benefit is your PC desk and keyboard will remain free of crumbs and save you the extra chore of cleaning it frequently of food stains. So you have a good snacking regime.
