Let’s Talk Healthy Snacks! – #wellbeing #health

Many of us are trying to get into the routine of better, healthier living. That includes choices of food. One major issue I personally run into is I’m such a snacker! I’m a bored eater and a stress eater. So what better way to motivate myself, and maybe a few of you, than to list some great, tasty snacks that are healthy. Of course, if you have more ideas, please share in the comments section!

Quick Snacks:

  • Berries
  • Nuts
  • Low-sodium jerky
  • Peanut butter
  • Veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower – no cooking required!)
  • Hummus with wheat crackers or celery

5-minute (or less!) snacks:

  • Oatmeal
  • Multi-grain cereal
  • Deli meat & cheese rollups
  • Tuna & apple slices
  • Fruit smoothie
  • Popcorn

Easy Recipes:

  • Protein Snacks
    • Eggs – scrambled, hard-boiled, etc. Throw in a piece of wheat toast to make it more filling!
    • Go a little fancier with your deli rollup. Include some cucumbers or cream cheese! Or turn it into a lettuce wrap.
  • Sweet Cravings
    • Peanut Butter Fat Bombs – 1/2 cup peanut butter + 8 oz cream cheese + 2 tbs sweetener
    • Vanilla Fat Bombs – 6 oz cream cheese +1 /3 cup butter + 2 tbs sweetener + 2 tsp vanilla
    • Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs – 3/4 cup cream cheese + 1/4 cup butter + 1/2 cup strawberries (stemmed & mashed) + 2 tsp sweetener + 1 tsp vanilla + 2 tbs heavy cream
  • Healthy Sushi – omit the rice & just wrap your favorite ingredients (crabmeat, salmon, shrimp, avocado, cucumber, etc.) in a nori wrap

The internet is flooded with health tips and the like. But remember this…

  • At the end of the day, make sure you focus on you.
  • Love yourself and give yourself time.
  • It’s okay to occasionally treat yourself.
  • Make gradual changes, don’t overwhelm yourself.
  • Things don’t happen overnight.

  1. This is a great list, Mar! I have to admit that smoothies are a personal favorite of mine. And when I crave something sweet, I’ll often brew a cup of sugar free decaffeinated powdered coffee—those Cafe International flavors that come in chocolate mocha and French vanilla.
    Another (semi healthy) snack–I’ll grab a date or a fig. Then of, course there is the ultimate—a thin square of the darkest, most decadent chocolate I can find! πŸ˜ƒ

  2. You’re talking my language, Mae! I tend to fix a cup of coffee too. I guess I didn’t think of that being a sweet fix, but it can be for sure! Especially the way I make it with my sugar free creamer! Dark chocolate is also a great idea! Thank you so much for stopping by & sharing your thoughts!

  3. This is excellent, Marlena. We are all so hard on ourselves. Yes, we need to put healthy foods in our bodies. That’s a given, but I often feel so much guilt when I occasionally eat something that is bad for me. And that isn’t healthy. πŸ™‚ You put together a great list! Thank you!
