Grazing accommodates my metabolism - I get hungry every few hours, so I keep my meals small. But noshing provides the self-defense I often need against junk food cravings. Tonight, for instance, I walked downtown for a concert on the square. Too early for supper beforehand, instead I noshed. A carrot sliced to scoop a little hummus, plus a half of a small avocado's worth of creamy guacamole, vaccinated me against the lure of street food. Had I too rushed for that little bit of food prep, I'd have grabbed an apple and a handful of nuts to munch as I walked, instead. But that would have been a snack . . .
