Snack Ideas

So you want to have a snack, but you're not so sure which ones sound good, OR will fill you up enough? Here's some ideas! Keep a few of these handy in your fridge, prepared and ready to go. Remember to drink a few glasses of water before eating your food so you are hydrated enough and the water will lightly fill you a bit too! Try a few of my favorites here:

1. Celery with Peanut Butter (buy  organic celery, cut into "snack sized" pieces and keep in a baggy for fast grabbing in the fridge. Make sure the peanut butter or almond butter you eat does not have any sugar in the ingredient list, in the nutritional facts are fine)

2. An Avocado with salt and pepper

3. Guacamole with cheese chips (avocado, cilantro, sour cream, mayo, onions, tomato, salt and pepper. For the cheese chips take shredded cheese (about 1/2 tablespoon worth) place on parchment paper and microwave every 30 seconds removing the steam from the micro every 30 seconds, cook in micro until its at the crispiness you desire.) 

4. Piece of bread or muffin with peanut butter or cream cheese or butter or coconut butter

5. Sliced Red Orange or Yellow Bell Pepper dipped in homemade ranch 
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup parm cheese
2 small garlic cloves finely minced
2 tablespoons finely minced onion

Put in food processor or magic bullet sprinkle salt and pepper. Done. This one packs a lot of kick if you don't like garlic half the recipe.

6. Ranch crackers, cheese chips, "bran" muffins, Ice cream How to

7. Cheese (kerrygold is the best) 2 slices is plenty, this is a snack, not a meal. 

8. Macadamia nuts. pistachios, almonds, cashews etc. follow the serving size, do not over fill up on nuts. 

9. Carrots with homemade ranch

10. Deviled eggs 

11. Vinegar Cucumber salad ( chopped cucumber 1/2 cup vinegar, 3 tablespoons erythritol, 1 tsp salt 1 tsp pepper mix and let sit or eat immediately) 

12. Mozzarella and tomato with a dash of balsamic vinegar

13. Simple Lite chocolate 4 pieces (dark chocolate)

15. Cheesecake  have a piece or two, its lowcarb its guilt free! 

That should keep you busy in between your meals of protein, veggies and fat for a little bit :)

Until Next time!
