LIST OF SNACK IDEAS:

Ever get bored with what you have on a daily basis for snacks? I always do. When I get bored I start to eat bad food. So I try and mix it up and focus on eating snacks two hours after breakfast and two hours after lunch! Why you should eat snacks?  You should aim to eat every 2 1/2 to 3 hours and 5-6 times a day.  Each meal should be around 200 to 300 calories depending on your weight loss goals and body composition!

Here are some ideas to curve yours cravings!

  • Protein Shake- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 12-14 oz water, frozen fruit.
  • 5 egg whites with salsa and a sprinkle of feta cheese.
  • 1 whole grain tortilla with 1 tbsp all natural peanut butter and 1 banana sliced, create a roll up.
  • 1 bag of edamame
  • 2 cups sugar snap peas and 1-2 tbsp hummus
  • 1 cup strawberries and a handful of raw unsalted cashews
