SNACK ATTACK!

I am often asked about good snack options
Here are a few ideas.
There are MANY more things that could be added.  

Fruit - a perfect snack!

ALL THINGS FRUIT
apple and nut butter
applesauce
fresh fruit
fruit kabobs
dried fruit
dates

VEGGIE LOVERS
veggie kabobs
veggies and dip

FOR THE LOVE OF HUMMUS
veggies and hummus
tortilla with hummus and veggies
pita chips and hummus

DAIRY, MOO
cottage cheese
crackers and cheese
string cheese
yogurt (yummy with granola and fruit!)

CARBS, PLEASE
granola bars
healthy homemade muffins or cookies
oatmeal bars
bowl of nutritious cereal
vitamuffins
popcorn

GIMME PROTEIN
edamame
hard boiled eggs
sliced meat with crackers
tuna – chicken – or egg salad on crackers

GOOD OL’ FAT
homemade trail mix
nuts
olives
rice cakes with nut butter
guacamole

MORE IDEAS 
smoothies - of course!
smoothie popsicles
quesadilla – tortilla, beans, cheese, salsa
meal replacement bars  

One more tip...
I often make up large batches of staples such as sweet potatoes, quinoa, cut veggies, etc.  So if hunger strikes I can grab half of a sweet potato, a little quinoa, and some veggies.  I like mini-meals for snacks too!
Of course, I am a huge fan of filling my hunger with smoothies!

What are your favorite snacks?  Do tell!

  3. I loved reading this. Just a few months ago I would have thought this was not for me. Now, after going through the Daniel Fast, this is exactly how we are eating. Thanks for writing it down, Shelley!
