Quick Healthy Snack Ideas

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

-Mini carrots with Holy Guacamole or Hannah’s Organic Hummus (both come in snack size and are available at Costco)

SoDelicious Greek Style  Coconut Milk (dairy free) Yogurt

Boom Chicka Pop or Skinny Pop Popcorn

What you your favorite healthy snacks?
