I’m always on the lookout for healthy munchies that I can keep in my bag and carry to work. All thanks to hyperthyroidism which made me gain some 15 kgs in 3 months. Oh yeah! I suddenly started looking like a potato.
Instead of waking up to the smell of fresh coffee, I was forced to take a pill, which would leave me bloated for the rest of the day. But I’ve never been a fan of orders. I stopped taking all medicines after a month and joined the college gym. Soon I realized that wasn’t enough. Taking 4 eggs after my gyming season wasn’t really doing the job. I felt energy less, almost always. And since I was staying in a paying guest accommodation, I couldn’t use the kitchen for anything except for making tea. Oh, life! I started looking for healthy snacks which did nothing apart from leaving me broke.
5 years later, when I look back, I can’t help but laugh at how from knowing literally nothing about cooking and my parents taking about how I should come back home, to trying new recipes whenever every week, I feel I’ve come a long way.
Look at these no bake chocolate oats bars, they are the real deal. They curb the sweet tooth without ruining your waistline. Oh and did I tell you these are gluten free?!
