Cottage cheese with any flavored yoghurt (to cut back on the sweetness and increase the amount of protein), Turkish yoghurt with honey & chopped nuts, veggie hummus (roasted veg, chick peas, tahini, olive oil, spices) with raw veg to dip in, dried mango/cranberries/figs, fresh dates. The dates are sooo sweet I only need 1 or 2 to satisfy my potent sweet tooth.
Wasabi peas and spicy fava beans make for a nice, protein-rich movie treat that I can't O.D. on because of the hot spices in them.
I love to keep a sesame or nut bar in my bag at all times,to keep me off the chocolate!
I just made homemade popsicles, made from 1 cup sliced strawberries, 1 banana, 1 cup vanilla yogurt, and 2 tablespoons of honey. I blended all ingredients, poured in 4 molds, then put them in freezer for about 3 hours. So delicious and healthy (no preservatives!).
I try to snack healthier, but my problem is most of the healthy foods I like to snack on are sweet fruits lol I try to watch my sugar intake.
My go-to snacks are:
-Emerald Cinnamon Roast Almonds (I like the 100 calorie packs to put in my purse or school bag)
-KIND Fruit & Nut Bars in Apple Cinnamon & Pecan (these are now my replacements for candy bars because I was eating entirely too much chocolate)
-Sliced apples topped with peanut butter
-Grapes and Raisins
I've been doing Whole30 & my present fav dessert is a serving of berries topped with a spoonful of coconut whipped cream. It's super easy to make - put 1 can of full fat coconut milk or coconut cream and a spoonful of vanilla extract in a bowl & beat it with an electric mixer or immersion blender until it's fluffy. Doesn't even need any extra sugar. Yum!
