I don’t know about you, but come 3 o’clock in the afternoon… I need a snack. It doesn’t have to be huge or elaborate – it can be just a few mouthfuls and I’ll be happy. Without that snack (especially if I had a lighter lunch), I tend to transform into a grumpy, shaky mess with an attention span of about 2 seconds.
