Best snack for mindless munching?

My license is expiring this year and I need to take a college class. It starts today.

3 whole hours of zoom class, every Tuesday and Thursday, after a full day of teaching and after school tutoring.

In other words, I'm in need of some serious extrinsic rewards and for me, food is the best reward What's the best food to snack on during class? I'd do candy, but knowing me, I'd eat the whole bag of candy then feel sick.

Will you be at home?

Popcorn. I like mine with lots of butter, so not the healthiest choice.
Buffalo chicken dip and chips.

dip it

I soak a cauliflower head in salted water and then break into bite size pieces. Make up some yogurt or sour cream dip to dunk the pieces into.

Sometimes I add in red/yellow bell pepper strips for color asn texture variety.

I like to make popcorn using my Whirly Pop - with just a little oil. Then use Pam Spray Butter flavor - low in calories!

pandemic popcorn

Before the pandemic, I might have popcorn once a month. Since the pandemic, I have discovered the organic popcorn with sea salt. Some brands are better than others, but not always available. It's been great for those late afternoon munchies!

Thank you all so much!!! Making a Walmart run this week and I'm going to be grabbing so many of these ideas.

Let me tell you...they're definitely needed I have SO MUCH sympathy now for every child doing virtual learning. I made it about 30 minutes then I was getting up, cooking myself food during the lecture, snacking, fidgeting with things on my countertop, etc. It is hard to stay focused over a computer! Hopefully some good snacks will help keep my hands busy.
