Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Snickers and energy boosts
Maybe it is the weather, maybe it is because I work so darn hard sometimes, but I have discovered that in the afternoon I often feel deflated after lunch and I am in need of an energy boost. I go the lazy way: instead of making a healthy balanced lunch, I munch something quickly then get myself a chocolate treat fill of sugar and bad stuff, but it also allows me to get the energy I need (and the comfort) to finish my day. Since Café2U is gone, I have to get my sugar intakes from the vending machine. I have tried many different chocolate bars, but now I have settle for Snickers. I don't find them as good as their sisters the Mars bars, but they have peanuts in them, so that means it has also proteins, not only sugar, so I don't feel so guilty eating it. But I love peanuts too. And chocolate. And caramel. So I have the essential energy and the just as essential endorphin to survive the afternoon. Moral of the story: comfort is a biochemical reaction.
