For me, one of the hardest parts about eating healthy is my snacking! I have the bad habit of snacking at work and it’s usually not the healthiest food. A lot of the time I buy those 90 or 100 calorie granola/cereal bars. They aren’t horrible for you and can be a good source of fiber [if you buy the fiber ones], but I get tired of them. Plus, I have a really hard time getting enough veggie and fruit servings in though out the day. Which is not because I don’t like them, I love fruits and veggies! I think I just tend to forget to add them to my meal. Even when I do have some veggies with dinner I’m still not getting enough for my daily serving. In light of this, I think I’m going to try to plan my snacks ahead and include more veggies and fruits!
Here are a few of my ideas!
I’ve already done this actually! Check out this ladies blog for directions on prepping your own smoothie baggies!
Celery & Peanut Butter
Be sure to use low fat PB!
Broccoli & Baby Carrots with Light Ranch
Really, this could be any veggies with ranch, soooo good!
Apple & Orange Slices
Actually, any fruit by itself us great...bananas, strawberries, grapes, and kiwi! You could also mix in some almonds with the fruit for something a bit different.
What are your favorite healthy snacks?
