I have an afternoon snack around 2 or 3 pm. Something with protein, for sure, to keep my hunger in control and give me the right nutrients.
A group of us mamas were talking the other day on our private Healthy Mama. Happy Living facebook forum about healthy snack choices. In the moment of hunger is when it’s the hardest to make a healthy choice. So it is a good idea to have several ideas ready when hunger strikes. Especially ones that you can take with you.
Here are my top favorite healthy mama snacks:
1. Apple Slices + Peanut Butter
My favorite apple is the Fuji. Crisp and sweet. I use organic peanut butter, but my favorite splurge is Justin’s Honey Almond Organic Peanut Butter. SO good.
2. Hard Boiled Eggs
I have an egg cooker and it cooks 7 in under 15 mins. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and yum!
3. Hummus and sliced cucumber
To help me with portion control, I buy the individual serving cups of hummus.
Tons of protein, no artificial sugars or flavors and …did I mention chocolate? I keep one in my purse at all times to avoid grabbing an unhealthy snack while I’m out.
I love the Emerald 100 calorie packs. I keep one of these in my purse too. Again, for me, it helps with portion control and it’s easy to grab for on the go.
What’s your favorite healthy snack?
