What Should I snack On?
A common question I’m asked is what to snack on? You’ve cut out cakes, biscuits, chips and pastries. So what’s left?
Here’s a short list of suggestions. Some more portable than others, some requiring some preparation. Others are also suitable as meals including the all important breakfast.
- Nuts – try almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, pecans, macadamias or walnuts. Choose portion sizes carefully however
- Hard boiled eggs – how easy is that? Prepare a batch in advance for a quick, easy and oh so healthy protein snack
- Small tins of tuna or salmon-packed in water, not flavoured varieties
- Smoked salmon in small portions
- Home made jerky- recipe to come soon in my newsletter
- Fruit with a protein serve-try fresh, tinned or frozen
- Veggie sticks with cottage cheese
- Cottage cheese with or without fruit
- Veggie sticks with salsa and some protein
- Fruit salad and yoghurt
- Home made trail mix- nuts, seeds and dried fruit-again, watch portion sizes
- Home made fruit roll ups with protein- recipe to come
- Home made dried apple chips-with protein of course
- Left over sliced cooked meats, or other left overs. Make up a small plate when dishing up tea.
As you can see, there’s plenty of ways to have healthy snacks with a minimum of preparation. Just think ahead for the next day, or if you haven’t been so organised, always make sure you have fruit (fresh or tinned), tins of fish, cottage cheese, yoghurt and eggs in your kitchen and you’ll have plenty to eat without resorting to junk foods.
