I was wondering what a good snack would be when I got home form school. I usually have cravings of sugar, and I try hard to avoid it, and yet I still eat something with lots of sugar. So, what would be a good snack that would be easy to make when I got home from school?

If you follow Zone more than paleo (meaning you allow yourself to eat dairy) then 1/4 cup Cottage cheese, 1/2 cup blueberries and some almonds to top it off make a great 1 block snack.

Would Honey Nut Cheerios/Frosted Mini Wheats/Cheerios be something to avoid? Or are those actually relatively healthy cereals?

Really what do you think. They're sugar-laced!

If you're coming home to snack straight away, how is the rest of your diet? Do you eat several small meals a day? When you do that, it regulates your blood sugar, providing you with more consistent energy and stopping you from craving so bad.

Are you just after the sugar taste mentally? Or does your body actually need the energy.

(I love snacking on raw almonds in the afternoon.)

(Safe.)

Start following a diet like that. After 3-4 days, you won't have any cravings for sugar... Unless it's a nice and juicy apple, and some walnuts and chicken to go with it. :-)

Have some hard boiled eggs on hand in the fridge. Then, you could have one or two with an apple and a cup of tea. I find that anything with an apple and tea satisfies me for a while.

Before I adopted a paleo + anti inflammatory style diet, my thing was triscuits drenched in olive oil. Dammmmn, that was good eating!!!

Patrick, are you affiliated with that site? I've seen you link that page a few times, and I'm a little uncomfortable as it seems to be taken whole cloth from a (purchasable) edition of the CFJ.
