I've been hearing all this stuff about a "Quarantine 15" but I'm going keep it real with ya chief, I'm expecting to do at least 25 to 30 pounds because I don't work out and just like most Americans, eating is something to do to pass the time.

I know, it sounds like gluttony but its true. You know it and I know it so let's not front with each other. At this very hour as stimulus checks roll in, stores are once again packed with folks making snack runs and stockpiling for HOWEVER much longer we're going to have to deal with this.

So we might as well have some fun with it. I have found myself eating ridiculously during this pandemic especially after I had to "Self-Quarantine" and work from home (See "The Quarantine Chronicles") and the following 5 "snacks" are the things I've been consuming in ridiculous amounts as of late:

  • 1

    Nutty Bars

    Quarantine or not, I keep a box of these on deck. Lightweight snack and Top 5 Little Debbie Snack and I will not have any more debate on this.

  • 2

    Beef Jerky

    High in protein to keep myself energized and also a longer shelf life than most other snacks. Can't go wrong with beef jerky baby.

  • 3

    Fresh Fruit

    This is probably the most healthiest snack I regularly consume. Melons and grapes are my go to but I also keep bananas, apples and oranges on deck.

  • 4

    Yakimandu & Wings From Chief's

    Okay maybe this doesn't qualify as a "snack" but I can't front, I've been downing my fair share of wings and "Yaki Snacks" from Chief's Sports Grill. I mean, can't stop a tradition that's already started!

    Just like you, I've been doing A LOT more drinking. I'm not even a "drinker" but since this whole thing started I found myself partaking in the libations a little bit more like the rest of Texas.
