Snacking Blog #2

  1. Fruits are always a great snack (I like to eat pears and apples because of high fiber content).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. IWON Organic Protein Puffs – Planted based protein chips, 10g protein, 5g Fiber, 1 g sugar. They taste like Cheetos, but healthy version.
  5. Celery juice- Please check out my celery blog on the benefits and how to prepare it.
  6. I love  Hummus because you add to fruits, veggies or salad.
  7. Cut up your favorite apples in pieces, add spoon peanut butter  and sprinkle powder cinnamon.
  8. Outshine Fruit Bars are great substitute for ice cream because it’s made with real fruit.
  9. 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.
