This to me is a #HOTbuttontopic as I am very protective of my precious “baby” books… newly minted off the presses… WHY WOULD I EAT OVER THEM? Well there MAY BE extenuating circumstances… Do you share this problem? Come share what you think…
Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme with a prompt featuring a book related question that runs from Friday to Thursday, hosted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
Candy corn, a chocolate bar, or popcorn. Which of these snacks are your favorite to eat while reading?
(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
NONE! First I don’t eat a lot of sugar… I have some trouble with my kidneys and sugar is VERY, VERY bad for organ functionality. So candy corn (yuck?) are out as they are PURE SUGAR and a chocolate bar (yum?) is almost as bad… so yeah no…
With the problems with my kidneys I am constantly thirsty as my kidneys aren’t always on the up and up about when I am dehydrated so yeah… NO TO POPCORN too… hahhhhaha!
Well, reading is an intense SPORT and you must be prepared to sacrifice and NOT EAT over your books… am I right? Or am I right! I just can’t see doing that to a book… have you ever gotten a library book full of crumbs… *sour face* It is disgusting and really freaks me out! So yeah, I vote NO to eating over books…
BUT with my lovely organ problems I can’t go without drinking all day… It sends my kidneys into a tailspin that basically means tiredness and hurting organs for days… So even if I sit with a book ALL DAY I MUST drink! I have a great smoothie (icee?) recipe that is healthy and delicious plus super versatile. Get yourself a handy covered thermos of your choice and voila! Protected book and healthy organs!
Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie, Dani’s Way!
3/4 to 1 cup orange juice
1 Tbsp agave nectar
1/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup sliced strawberries (including juices)
1/2 cup yogurt
Fill a ninja single serving blender cup to the fill line with ice cubes. Add orange juice depending on your blender and how loose you like your smoothie. Add nectar, then pineapple, and strawberries and yogurt. Push it all down and fit on the blender lid attachment. Blend more for a smooth ice or less for a textured ice depending on your preferences.
Makes 20 oz.
For those of you who MUST have your candy corn, chocolate and popcorn… I have a decidedly UNHEALTHY alternative…
A friend swears by this recipe! Happy Halloween and may all your reading dreams come true!
Do you *gasp* eat over your books?
Do you drink smoothies?
Any favorite Halloween treats?
Thanks for reading, XOXO
