It's 3 pm.
You've eaten lunch... but that satiated feeling has worn off. It's totally gone.
You've still gots lot of your day left and the end isn't in sight and the munchies have hit hard.
You mindlessly start to browse through cupboards which gets your tastebuds going looking for some action. Now you're body has fooled you into convincing you that you're totally hungry and must be fed now. But, how do you avoid snacking when that's all you can think about?
I have fallen prey to this situation countless times. And despite efforts to distract myself, convincing myself that I don't need to eat, that urge is hard to keep at bay.
Don't get me wrong. I am all for self control and learning to feel comfortable with discomfort. But for those times when you need something that puts those sensations to rest, Core Cakes are AMAZING. They have the caloric and macronutrient breakdown of your typical protein bar, are almost as easy and convenient to eat, but these cakes have significantly more volume and weight to their build.
Whenever I bust out a Core Cake either post workout, during these dreaded late afternoon hours, or in the evening before bed, I am always left with a full, happy tummy. It's easy to avoid snacking when I feel like that.
Maybe we need to rebrand to Satisfied Cakes, because that is exactly how I am left feeling after quickly consuming them. And, I don't mean the, "I regret eating that" full feeling, I mean they leave you on the perfect edge of full and comfortable, and ready to tackle the rest of your day before your next meal greets you.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, grab a sample pack of Core Cakes and try this gooey antidote for yourself! It has become the delicious saving grace to my afternoon munchies.
