Hunger happens, and often in between meals.
It is OKAY to eat a snack!
How do these snacks sound to you?
1 banana or apple with 2 tablespoons nut or seed butter
1 hard-boiled egg sprinkled with your favorite spices or seasoning; pair with veggies, a piece of fruit, yogurt, or milk
⅓ cup hummus with fresh veggie sticks
½ sandwich: 1-2 oz meat, tuna fish or hard-boiled eggs with lettuce and veggies (i.e. tomato, cucumber or peppers)
½ PB&F: That's Peanut Butter and Fruit! Swap out high-sugar jelly for sliced bananas, strawberries, or grapes.
1 oz cheese (i.e. 1 cheese stick) with fresh veggie sticks or fruit and whole grain crackers
4-6 oz yogurt with fruit. Top with pepitas for a little extra fiber, protein, healthy fat and crunch!
Consider these additional tips when choosing a snack:
Think of snacks as mini meals. Why can't leftover dinner can't be enjoyed as a snack?
Non-starchy vegetables and fruits have lots of vitamins and minerals, making them excellent snack foods!
Prepare a small batch of hard-boiled eggs so you can grab-and-go.
Have fresh cut vegetables and fruit ready to grab from the fridge. Store up to two days.
For busier days, you can find fresh veggie sticks or fruit at grocery and convenience stores.
Stock your vehicle or bag with your favorite whole food bars (i.e. protein bars, granola bars, etc). Emergencies happen; it’s nice to be prepared!
