My featured novella this month — Here Today, Zombie Tomorrow– is a Zombie story. And today’s topic is brain food. Well, brain food for writers, anyway.
On deadline? Obsessed with your current storyline? Forfeiting sleep, exercise, and nutrition to reach the moment you can type the words The End on the final page of your novel?
Here are a list of grazing foods that you can keep on hand. High in protein, easy prep, and tasty.
Single serve, or 5 ounces of nonfat cottage cheese. 3 grams more protein than a typical serving of Greek yogurt.
Hard boiled Egg. No longer shunned due to claims of too high cholesterol, we can enjoy in moderation. You can boil yourself or purchased peeled and packaged at the market.
Peanut butter. Scoop your own or purchase in single packets, smear on a banana or apple slices.
Roasted chickpeas ( I love hummus and falafel). 120 cals per serving, 5 gram of protein and fiber.
To prep yourself rinse and drained chickpeas in a bowl with olive oil. Add chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Oven bake at 425 degrees for 45 mins.
Turkey roll ups. Nitrate free deli turkey breast with a squirt of mustard, a slice of tomato, and some lettuce. Add red pepper slices and baby carrots. Roll and store in a plastic container or foil.
Hummus. Made from chickpeas, tahini, and olive oil, hummus is a healthy mix of protein and fiber. Use it as a dip for carrots, tomatoes, red pepper, and cucumber slices,
100-calorie almond packets.
Happy Writing & Reading.
