Mindless Munching

I think that the #1 thing that's been brought to my attention during these four days of paleo-ish has been how much mindless snacking I do. Kids don't finish a protein bar? I eat it! Pouring the kids Cheerios? I eat some! Feeling stressed? Grab a handful of anything!

If nothing else, I'm so glad to be made aware of how unintentionally I eat. It's ridiculous and often a response to stress or frustration or sleepiness, which in turn makes me feel cruddier.

Hoping to turn that knee jerk snacking impulse into prayer & thanksgiving. Give me a teachable spirit, Lord...
