The holiday season is over and it’s back to work this week! I generally eat very healthy all year round, but even I can’t avoid the temptations of sweets between Thanksgiving and New Years. Christmas week was especially hard because I took the week off. I definitely got off my schedules. Yes, schedules. My sleeping, eating and exercising habits are very methodical. I can tell my body is a little out of whack, so I am looking forward to getting back on track. I always eat two snacks a day. One between breakfast and lunch then one between lunch and dinner. Here are some of my favorite snacks to pack for work.
-Celery and 1-2 TBSP almond butter (MaraNatha No Stir Almond Butter is my favorite brand)
-Small apple and 1-2 TSP almond or peanut butter
-1/2 cup cottage cheese and fruit (I buy full fat cottage cheese because it usually has less ingredients. The Breakstone brand has been my favorite with fresh pineapple).
-1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese with a dash of vanilla extract and cinnamon (I LOVE this snack. It’s so creamy and delicious; almost like a dessert. Ricotta cheese is a great source of whey protein – from what I’ve read. It is also much, much lower in sodium than cottage cheese. I like Sorrento full fat ricotta cheese; I think this brand has a good texture)
-A handful of walnuts with about 3 prunes
–SoDelicious Greek Style Coconut Milk (dairy free) Yogurt
What you your favorite healthy snacks?
