What favorite food and or beverage do you enjoy while logged into second life

Recommended Posts

Tea throughout the day. It can be a simple cup of tetley brand tea or apple and cinnamon. Pumpkin spice during Autumn. Maybe three cups per day. Between those cups of tea I have a lot of water or vegetable juice.  Food wise it depends on the time of day. Morning oatmeal, toast or bowl of fruit. Afternoon usually a cup of soup and crackers. Dinner varies. If I'm snacking though every now and again it is popcorn or pretzels. I also love gold fish cheddar crackers.

I have a really tiny appetite so eat several small meals throughout the day.

    sometimes for extra natural peanut  or almond butter to go with ,,,, the vitimans and necessary fats in peanut or almond butter with the fruit and chocolate ,,,,  or walnuts in the chocolate with the fruit ,,, all very good for you and will not make you fat ,,,,,

for family gatherings i melt the chocolate  in glass pan  then i top it with the fruit and then another thin layer of the chocolate and sprinkly with fresh coconut or mashed up special k cerial  and serve with a side of natural almond or peanut butter ,,,,,  i have also added tiny marshmallows , and crumbled the mint chocolate mixed w the special k and omg soo goood .

Comes down to one fundamental question for me. "Am I performing a set later today?"

If no: Coffee or tea through the day, whisky in the evening. Whatever I feel like prepping or cooking for food. The limits on "prepared food" in my house stop at smoked and cured meats, butter and cheeses. Pretty much everything else I prep from raw ingredients. (Guilty once-in-a-while pleasure is a bag of doughnuts from the bakery down the street. The baker and I are buddies, we talk about our sourdough cultures a lot ;)  )

If yes: Eat nothing heavier than a sandwich for the three hours before the set. A full belly really does horrible things to your ability to sustain vocal tone. Coffee and tea as usual, but no tea during the set - that can "tighten up the pipes" too.The whisky bottle stays capped until after.

I don't know about the "makes you fat" part - but I don't eat in front of the computer either because I'm not motivated enough to clean my keyboard every other day, so I eat any snacks whenever I'm AFK and in the kitchen anyway.

Actually, I'm often AFK, like every 45-50 minutes or so, in order to avoid RSI: I stand up from the computer, stretch, flex my wrists, then I smoke a cigarette on the kitchen balcony, have something to drink, and/or some chocolate or cookies in the kitchen, then I return :)

I was in the same place until recently.  I quit smoking in RL (going on three months now!)  I never smoked at my computer (messes with the electronics) but I do vape.  Gradually cutting down the nicotine level with an eye to eventually quitting that, too.

I don't like eating at the computer. I like drinking vanilla chai tea. I haven't got much of a caffeine tolerance.

What's a hard lemonade?  Does it jump up and smash its own bottleneck off for you? :D

Alcoholic Lemonade - comes in flavors also, like Strawberry Lemonade.

CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!

I started smoking when I was 10, averaged a pack a day for about 35 years before I finally quit many years ago when I got a cancer scare.  It was definitely the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but also probably the most beneficial, health-wise.

Congratulations from me, as well. 👍

As for me, I started smoking with 18, back then in 1986, and had managed to quit quite a dozen times (the longest time without was from Feb '93 to May '02, the shortest time was through August '11) -- but whenever I did quit, I did so completely, from 25 cigarettes (in average) per day down to zero: out of a whim, from one moment to the next.

But then there always was the "stress cigarette" (which I felt I needed during or after a stressful situation) which triggered my addiction again...😔

Anyway, since I got my new apartment in '16, I've kept it smoke-free, by smoking on my balcony only -- no matter the weather outside: I simply don't want my nice apartment to smell like an ashtray.  🙂

I gave up 3 years ago. Before that, I was smoking 40 a day, at least.

Didn't think I could quit, but I started thinking about folk willingly dying of cancer so they could buy some tobacco company rep's son his first sports car, and that helped.

They cost so much, I've saved a fortune. Also - I don't stink anymore (I can smell a smoker now as soon as they walk into a building), have less congestion/sinus problems, get fewer headaches, bounce back from colds/flu quicker, etc.

I am currently enjoying one of my favorite (and inexpensive) guilty pleasures.
Instant ramen with tofu.

Coffee with milk. Just now, I got my mug next to me. Food - whatever snack I brought or whatever food is for dinner, lunch or breakfast.

Wolf, the ingredients sound good, but the package picture is quite off-putting.  Besides...you really EAT that while at the computer?  You like to live dangerously.

I love veggies and fruits and nuts..

Cut up peppers,carrots or mini carrots,fresh green beans,peas in the husk,celery,cucumber.. Just about anything that holds a lot of water when biting into it.

Just about any fruit that isn't too complicated or messy..pomegranates I love, but they are just too messy even when you prep them and put them in a bowl..it's like they just can't wait to fall on the floor from a spoon.. hehehe

All I really drink is tea and water or fresh juice..

I am amazed  and thankful to SL for all the wonderful things and ability to reach  out to others in so many different places all over the world. That being said  at least for me as i am building ...in rl my favorite beverage  is coffee or a mocha latte . For food prefer fruit if i am in world during lunch . How about you 

If I'm on right after work, beer.  In the morning, coffee.  If I wait a bit after work of in the evenings on weekends, rum and diet, although usually I don't drink anything then.  If it's steak night (Sat or Sun) red wine with a cigar.

I seldom eat while on SL, since I'm usually on my couch or recliner and I don't keep snacks in the house.
