“I’m sorry for the unkind words I spoke out of hunger.”
I do believe this would be considered hangry. Sure, some people eat in response to different emotions; however, there is a handful of people who experience an extreme emotional response when they are without food. That response is usually anger. Or, as you may know it, “hanger.” Hanger can be a terrible thing, but fortunately, it is not too complicated to fix. Hanger is corrected with food!
To prevent any unkind words from slipping out when you or a loved one is hungry, I recommend keeping some quick snacks on hand. I’m not talking candy bars and bon-bons. I’m talking an effective snack. It’s simple: have a little bit of carbohydrate to boost that energy level up and a small portion of protein to keep the hanger from sneaking back again within the next couple hours.
Examples of effective snacks to prevent “hangry” include:
- Cheese stick with a small apple
- Peanut butter spread on a few low-fat crackers
- Plain Greek yogurt topped with frozen blueberries
- Handful of almonds with a mini-bag of light popcorn
- Almond butter spread on a small banana
