If I had a dollar for every time somebody asked me what I eat during a typical day, I’d be rich! People like to think that just because I’m a Health Coach, that I eat all of these weird things, but that’s not true! Yes I might take a shot of wheat grass every now and then, but I also eat ice cream on occasion too (gasp!). But today I want to share with you some of my favorite snacks. I’m a big fan of snacking, but it has to be done in the right way. I encourage people to eat a snack in the mid-afternoon when they normally get that 3:00 slump. However I don’t encourage people to grab a package of Oreos and milk at 9:00pm before bed because their “bored”. You need to snack smart!
So whether you’re at home, at work, or on the go, here are some quick, healthy snack ideas:
- string cheese
- a piece of fruit
- a handful of nuts
- veggies and hummus
- air popped popcorn
- a handful of tortilla chips and salsa
- dry roasted edamame (this goji berry one is my favorite!)
- rice cakes or celery with all natural nut butter
- Lara bars
- a smoothie (this might be a better option if you’re at home or need to run out of the house)
- an RX protein bar
- an Oatmega protein bar
- yogurt (look out for added sugars!)
- cottage cheese
- trail mix
This is just a quick list. There are still so many other healthy snacks out there! I love to make sure that each of my snacks has some carbs and protein to satisfy my hunger longer. Do you have a favorite healthy snack that’s not on this list? Share it in a comment below!
