Tea on Tuesday

There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea. ~Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady

Whenever I need a healthy snack to keep me going through that afternoon slump, I have something like this ...

dates and almonds with ginger mandarin tea. I'm a grazer so, rather than having three large meals, I like to eat many small meals and snacks throughout the day. How about you? What's your eating style?

Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

My eating style....unfortunately I like three large meals and the snacks in between. It's definitely not helping the waistline!!
Terrific Tuesday to you too!

I tend to have breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. I used to scoff down double-sized meals in my younger years and was skinny as a rake but now my metabolism has slowed down, I should be eating much smaller portions. Easier said than done...darned menopause!

Apparently, it's better for the health to eat numerous, snack-sized meals throughout the day.

Enjoy your Tuesday ~ :)

My husband likes to eat three times a day and he snacks in between. I'm so used to cooking for him that I wouldn't even know what mine would be. I think it would be whenever I was hungry. Your snacks look yummy Tammy. Diane

Normally, I am an almond and anything kind of snacker... but, I do love a big meal. Thus, the necessity of imposing restictions on myself periodically (about once every 10 years. LOL) to shed some of the 'extra.' I'm shedding right now. LOL! I need to take grazing lessons from you, Tammie. blessings ~ tanna

Hey chicky,
It has been a while since I have heard from you... what's up?

Yvonne said...

Your tea and snacks sound really good. I can be a grazer, but mostly try to eat my 3 meals a day. I always get a sweet tooth in the evenings. Happy tea day!

Linda said...

I like your style!

Mine is that I eat a small meal around 7:00 a.m. when I get to the office, which might be a sandwich or some kind of lunch item and then I do not eat again until dinner at 6:30 p.m.

Hello fellow grazer...I was just reading that dates are a perfect food in many ways and wondering WHY I don't eat more of them

your tea and snack look perfectly lovely to me!

happy end of August to you and yours dear Tammy

I'm a grazer too .... I tend to graze more when I'm bored though ... Not good :)

Your snack is very healthy .... I love olives lately and a slice of cheese ... Probably too much salt!

Since I've been dieting I've been eating three meals a day and light snacks if I get hungry. Your snack looks good and healthy. Hope your week is going well.

my eating habits, do you really want to know??
:-) I eat a good breakfast, our warm meal is in the afternoon as many German families have, and then a lighter "lunch" in the evening. In between I do tend to snack, and try to be good about it by snacking on fruits and nuts, but I have a sweet tooth and find it hard to resist a bit of chocolate once in a while. And don't let me anywhere near ice cream!! ~Debby

Ever since I had my gastric bypass last December I now eat about 5-6 small meals a day and it really works great for me!

I love almonds but have never tried dates before.

Love,
LuLu~*xoxo

A Cottage Muse said...

I am trying to eat 5 smaller meals a day but with 2 hungry guys around it is hard to cook for them and not indulge myself!

Teresa said...

Oh boy... unfortunately, 2 main meals (lunch and dinner) and nibbling all day long at anything that passes within my reach! Lol
But I have to change that, I have to lose weight... sigh...

Tammy, I always love to see how and what you eat. I, too, like to eat small meals throughout the day. I am amazed at how your granny square afghan is coming along! Have a nice day! Twyla

Small meals is the way to go....graze away. It's supposed to be the healthy way! OK I graze and then usually eat a rather large meal too.....need to stop that! lol
