Boredom Munchies

Look how beautiful it was today! Blue sky’s here in Sunny Ventura, Ca


Okay, I know what you’re all thinking, “Paige, you’re not a weather woman, stop acting like it.”

Or, you may be thinking “wait, is this a freeway off-ramp? Is she driving and taking pictures?”

What??? It’s not a cell phone….. 😉

I had to document this picture, because it is literally the first time I have remembered to get off at this exit since I started babysitting on Tuesdays (maybe 2 months now??). For some reason, every time I am driving to my Tuesday job, my brain gets going and going and I always pass the exit. It needed to be documented!


I had to show you all this cute jewelry box that Harper made. This is one to “Pin!”

It’s a shoe box, painted with pretty colors, and decorated with beads. You can’t see the bottom, but all four corners have wooden beads as well so that it is lifted. Mom’s (Dad’s??) if you want something to do for craft time with your little one, get the shoeboxes out! I’m sure you can come up with something cute cool for little boys too! Car box? Card box?


While I was babysitting, I had a small snack with prunes + hummus and a few falafel chips.


These falafel chips are from Trader Joes, and they are SO good! They are pretty pricey for chips ($3.99 for this 8oz bag? I think?) but for a treat, they are so great! And healthy (for chips!!)

And a few prunes on the side. I really love prunes! We never have them at my house, so I like to grab just a couple when I babysit. I should really buy some!

About an hour or so later, I had the yogurt that I brought from home.

  • 1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 2 tbsp. granola
  • good amount of berries
  • lemon zest for a fresh, tasty flavor

This yogurt was, GREAT!


A couple hours later when I got home, I was surprised with Corrales that was patiently waiting for me in the fridge! Again?! I could NOT pass it up. So amazing!

I split this burrito with my Mom, and oh boy was my tummy happy (I was pretty happy too ;)).


Last, but definitely not least, I had my blueberry muffin LARABAR. I love LARABAR. Love. Did I say love?

I ate all my food pretty early, and I am tempted to eat more now, even though I am not hungry, just out of boredom (please tell me I’m not the only one who experiences this at night??) Instead of eating an (un!!)necessary meal, I’m going to get my overnight oats ready (I think cooking is really what I feel like doing), I am going to drink some tea, and do some researching about school/etc. that I have been needing to get done. I am looking up classes/schools to be a registered dietitian! What do you all think? 🙂

I leave you with two questions:

Do you get “boredom munchies” at night?


Are you going to prepare your Overnight Oats tonight? What are you putting in them?
