Healthy Snack Ideas

Hey ladies!

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)
Baby Carrots
Unsweetened Applesauce
Wasa Crisps
Peanut Butter
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?

Colon cleansing not only helps out in removing the junk out of his intestine walls but will also allow the waste to pass off more freely.

Healthy snacks are very important when you are on a diet and try to lose weight. Your body must never be hungry! Healthy snacks keep digestion going and burning calories. Thanks for sharing and greetings!
