Healthy Snack Ideas12:00 AM
Snacking! Another challenge in my healthy living. The moment I feel I have my eating under control, life throws a curve ball and I am back to make changes. Lately, snacking has been my vice. Trying to pick healthy options and having them in moderation has been a struggle. As always, going back to the drawing board and making a plan of action has been been my strategy.
I decided to fill my pantry with numerous healthy options, which then I packed in invidual size portions (unless they already come in single serving).
- Bowl of Fruit
I either go for a bowl of mixed fruits or one single fruit (e.g. apple, orange etc.). Having this as a mid morning snack helps me keep my energy levels up and sweet cravings at bay.
I know water is not a snack. However, often in my experience, the body is not hungry but is giving mixed signals, due to past bad eating habits. Instead of going right for food, having a glass of water helps your brain process whether it is truly hungry or not. And luckily, a glass water does not have any calories.
If you are like my you might swing between salty to sweet cravings every other hour. Hence, having options for both those categories in your pantry is important. Weight Watcher's Light Jalapeno string cheese is one of the many options I found at Giant Food. It comes individually packed and is smooth and creamy with a kick of jalapeno peppers.
This is my go-to-snack while working. I choose the individual size option which is low in butter and salt but high in fiber. I definitely cannot resist the hot-yummy-goodness. It’s a perfect snack for one of those busy days when you just want sometime to munch on with least amount of effort.
- Ice Cream
