“What are your favorite healthy snacks?”  A question I get asked often!!

First of all, I am a creature of habit. I tend to stick with the same snacks & meals just because it’s easy! I love quick, healthy snacks that I can grab on the go or whip up quickly. For me being prepared is the KEY to staying on track. Forgetting to grab something when running out the door can be the downward spiral to my day.

Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt is one of my latest cures when I am craving something sweet! Packed full of protein & always fills me up.

Ingredientscookie dough greek yogurt:
1 small container of plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp nut butter (I used peanut butter)
1 tbsp sweetener (like maple syrup or honey)
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch of sea salt

1 tbsp mini chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)

Directions
Combine the Greek Yogurt with the nut butter, sweetener, vanilla and sea salt. Mix until smooth.
Top with Mini Chocolate chips. Enjoy!

 

hummus with veggies

I always have fresh veggies in the fridge. I always wash & cut them up so they are ready when I want something crunchy! My favorite hummus is the Sabra red pepper (either the original or the spicy if I am feeling BRAVE!)


A list of items I always have on hand:brands

  • AppleGate bacon/lunchmeat
  • Almond Butter
  • Arctic Zero Frozen Dessert
  • Avocado’s
  • Coconut Oil
  • Egg Whites
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Hummus
  • Fairlife Milk
  • Fresh Fruit & Veggies
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Lemons
  • Mission Carb Balance Tortilla’s
  • Opa Dressing (friendly macro’s & perfect for dressings or dips)
  • Salsa (Natural)
  • Udi’s gluten free bagels

 

pre-workout snacki

My workout program is primarily weight training so I tend to NOT do a “fasted” workout. I personally feel I don’t have the same strength & stamina to get through it without eating. This is my typical pre-workout snack, just the right amount of carbs & healthy fats.
*Plain rice cake with almond butter topped with a half of banana.
