I'm Sorry For What I Said When I Was 'HANGRY'
We've all been there. It's been hours since you ate something and the irritability starts to set in. All you can hear is your stomach rumbling and saying 'FEED ME! I'M STARVING!'
For runners and athletes alike, consuming something every few hours is vital to optimal performance. Even for non-athletes, keeping the tank fueled is important because by maintaining your blood sugar levels, you are alert and functioning effectively, and more importantly, happy.
I am guilty of it.
I plan my day poorly and don't pack enough snacks to keep me fueled for the day. It makes work more tasking as I struggle to keep my eyes open, my tummy is constantly rumbling, and the only thing on my mind is how soon I can get food to squelch my hunger.
And then it happens. Someone says something to me or asks a question. My response is quick and not endearing. This is very unlike me.
So what happened? I was 'hangry.'
'Hangry' is a state of anger or irritability, or both, that results from being hungry.
When hanger strikes, and you single out an innocent victim, just be sure to apologize with a, 'I'm sorry for what I said when i was hangry.'
Yesterday, I was getting hangry and craving some ice cream. I happened to stumble upon a recipe on Pintrest that looked amazing, so I decided to give it a go! Three ingredients? Could it get any more simple? This must be ice cream for dummies.
Take Greek yogurt, cocoa powder and sweetener/sugar to your liking, and there you have it! Homemade fro-yo! I got the recipe here but tweaked it to make it my very own.
For the 'Sugiyumyum Fro-yo' Original:
6 ounces of Fage 0% Plain
1-2 tablespoons of Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder
2-3 packets of Stevia or any kind of sweetener to your liking
A splash of Pure Vanilla Extract
Freeze for 30-45 minutes depending on how soft or hard you like your ice cream.
Add-ins can include peanut butter, fresh or frozen berries, chocolate chips, nuts etc.
My favorite thing about this recipe is that it is not only healthy and satisfying, but it packs a huge protein punch! Give it a try next time your sweet tooth is hangrily calling.
Yours in being 'sorry for what I said when I was hangry,'
