Healthy Snack Ideas
This week has been so challenging! Between finals and unpacking, eating healthy has been quite difficult. However, I managed to stick pretty well to my goal of eating whole foods. The key is keeping snacks on hand and preparing as much of you own food as possible. I did a little grocery shopping yesterday to re-stock on my clean snacks. Here are a few things I picked up:
My Snack List:
Kashi Almond Crunchy Bars ( I find these to be the healthiest granola bar)
Larabars (for when I'm craving something sweet)
Garden of Eatin' Baked Tortilla Chips
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
These items make eating on the go easy for me. Even if you are not trying to eat 100% clean try to incorporate some of this items into your snack options. Here are some healthy and satisfying snack ideas. If you haven't tried WASA crisps yet then you should try them. They are newest edition to my healthy snack list. They have like 15 whole grains, a couple simple ingredients, and they are pretty cheap (2.69 @ whole foods).
Baby Carrots and Hummus
1 tbsp peanut & 2 Wasa Crisp
Baked Tortilla Chips and Hummus (or salsa)
1/4 cup of almonds and unsweetened applesauce
Quick Fitness Update:
I've been eating clean for approximately 5 days (well I had one major slip up, I'll tell y'all about it later). I've been spending at least an hour in the gym a day. I dropped 2lbs this week. I love progress!!
Got any Healthy Snack ideas to share?
