Snacking Blog #2
- Fruits are always a great snack (I like to eat pears and apples because of high fiber content).
- Nuts are perfect for snacking (I like to combine reduced sugar cranberries , almond (no salt), and peanuts in a mix. I like to bring a bag of the nut mix to work or put it my purse for when I go on errands. Just remember to measure it out so you don’t overeat. I have realized nuts are very easy to overeat plus high in calories, but a good source of protein and help satisfies craving.
- Popcorn – Boom Chicka POP Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn – A delicious popcorn to satisfy the salt and sweet craving. 1 cup is 70 calories. Popcorn is high in fiber and lower in calories than potato chips.
- IWON Organic Protein Puffs – Planted based protein chips, 10g protein, 5g Fiber, 1 g sugar. They taste like Cheetos, but healthy version.
- Celery juice- Please check out my celery blog on the benefits and how to prepare it.
- I love Hummus because you add to fruits, veggies or salad.
- Cut up your favorite apples in pieces, add spoon peanut butter and sprinkle powder cinnamon.
- Outshine Fruit Bars are great substitute for ice cream because it’s made with real fruit.
- Peanut Butter Whole Wheat Wrap.

“Strength grows in the moments when you think you can’t go on but you keep going anyway”. I know most of my blog posts had been related to foods is because 80 percent of weight loss is related to diet and 20 percent is related to exercise. I am focusing on eating a balanced diet instead of hopping on and off diets.
