As a child, one thing I would always look forward to is my afternoon snack. Probably because I eat it when I get home from a long day at school and before I do my homework. Then, I get to play. It signals that I just have one more thing to do and then I can enjoy the rest of my day. Afternoon snacks are always a delight to have, especially as a kid because my mother would always prepare it for us. It could be anything, from a simple sandwich to a burger, anything is possible. All you have to do is eat, study, sleep, repeat.
Oh, eating was much simpler when we were kids, am I right? Now, we can’t just have a burger without thinking about how to make up for it in physical activities. You just know you have to do something in order to burn the fat. As an adult, we have to be more conscious of what goes into our bodies. Be it food, beverage, medicine, vitamins, or supplements, we have to know what goes into these items before we let it into our bodies. As children, we have our parents to do the scrutiny part for us, now that we are adults, we have to do it ourselves!
Whenever I work, I always need to have an afternoon snack. See, afternoons are not easy. The morning adrenaline has worn off, the work rush has settled, and there are times when I can’t wait to go home. That’s why I need my afternoon cup of coffee and snack - they keep me awake. However, lately, my snacks are not exactly ketogenic or keto diet-friendly. I find myself turning to potato chips. They’re my vice and I’m not proud of it. Eating potato chips does not burn fat at all. If anything, it only contributes to fat, so I know that I have to quit this “backsliding”.
I have been working hard; I stay faithful to my ketogenic or keto diet and exercise regularly. When you come from eating pretty much anything you want for a long period of time, dieting and exercising are nearly impossible to do. But when you grow older, you realize that there are far more important things than the temporary satisfaction of unhealthy food - your health. Not wanting to waste all my efforts to live and eat healthy, I made it my life’s mission to be on a constant lookout for healthy food and snacks that are satisfying and will not cause me to break from my diet.
My very first find is Delightfully Yours Parmesan Crisps. I came across this product online. I was feeling guilty after having another bag of potato chips, so I told myself it has to stop. I typed “keto-friendly snacks” in the search box and this appeared. What caught my attention was “Low-Carb Parmesan Cheese Crisps”. I mean, crisps made of parmesan cheese? I figured it’s free to look and see what the other customers are saying about it. So, I got to know Delightfully Yours Parmesan Crisps virtually.

Snacking should not be entirely forbidden even if we are watching what we eat. We should not deprive ourselves of having something we love. I believe that the key is eating food that is of quality, without the unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients. I understand that clean food costs more and are more difficult to find, but would you rather spend more on medicine, or worse, hospital bills? Do yourself a favor and invest in your health - you will not regret it.
