Have a (Nutritious) Snack

13 Jun

healthy_snacks[1]Forget the 100-calorie snack packs — they’re little more than slick marketing.  Most of them are still the same unhealthy, processed foods loaded with artificial ingredients.  You’re better off skipping the pre-packaged foods in favor of real food.  Aim for snacks that provide a balance of clean carbs, lean protein, and healthy fats.  This list is by no means all-inclusive, but try these healthy, low-calorie snacks:

  • Apple, banana, carrots, or celery with peanut butter (heck… anything with peanut butter!)
  • Carrot sticks with cottage cheese
  • Banana with semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Air-p0pped popcorn, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and cayenne pepper
  • Cottage cheese with salsa and corn chips
  • Baked sweet potato with greek yogurt and salsa
  • A skinny latte with 8 oz. fat-free steamed milk, with a shot of espresso and a sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Red bell pepper with hummus
  • Greek yogurt with blueberries and almonds
  • Low-fat string cheese and whole grain crackers
  • Hard-boiled egg with guacamole

Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
