It can be easy to get stuck in a rut with healthy foods, and reach for the not so great choices instead.
I personally have never been a fan of crunching on carrots and celery sticks but still like to keep my snacks as healthy as possible, so I’ve gotten creative about coming up with healthy options to snack on!
I wanted to share some of my favorites. These are staples to prevent me from getting overly hungry and indulging in the not so great stuff. I also like to always be sure to have a healthy snack on hand when I’m on the go!
I prefer to eat smaller meals throughout the day so like to think of my snacks as healthy “mini meals” and usually have 2-3 a day, in addition to regular smaller meals.
First up, my favorite bars! I am a huge fan of Quest Bars on the go! I also make my own protein muffins to grab and go when I want extra protein.
Chia Pudding, Greek Yogurt, and Cottage cheese are all options when I want something cold! I like to go for plain Greek yogurt and add stevia, cinnamon, and fresh fruit, or I make chia seed pudding by letting chia seeds, unsweetened almond milk, and cinnamon soak overnight.
Protein mug cakes are a great option if you’re home and craving something sweet! Here’s one of my favorites.
Shakeology is a go-to snack once a day for me, but I like to think outside the box, sometimes I’ll make a smoothie but I also love to make a pudding with just enough almond milk to thicken it or even these chocolate ShakeO bites when I want something sweet!
Lastly you don’t need to go crazy! Simple whole, clean foods that make great options are things like hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruit and veggies, brown rice cakes or crackers, turkey slices, or grilled chicken.
Now it’s your turn!
