What do you eat when you don't know what you want?

Know that feeling? You're hungry but nothing looks or sounds interesting. What do you go to in that situation?

  1. Cheese and crackers or eggs prepared just about any way.

        1. Hot or grilled ham and cheese sandwich.

          1. Water

            Dehydration can create the false sense of hunger.

            That's what I generally attribute to the sensation you describe - i.e., hunger without an actual craving for anything in particular.

              I do this too - but if 15-20 minutes I'm still hungry (and it's in between meals) either some peanut butter on a spoon or a small amount of tamari almonds.
