Snacks!

Of course we snack! We do notice however, we snack less than we used to. This is because our body is getting the nutrients it needs and actually wants so we are satisfied and “full” from our meals and do not need to snack much. However, we do still snack. Especially on days we workout or are more active.

Here is a list of our general snacks.

Mixed nuts. We like the Archer Farms Deluxe Roasted Mixed Nuts which includes almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts and pecans with sea salt. (buy at Target)

*avoid peanuts as they are legumes.
*avoid nut mixes with all the “sweetened dried fruits” I found a good Archer Farms mix with nuts and dried blueberries. (buy at Target)

Berries! Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries.

Apples.

Scottish Eggs. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, snack, WHENEVER! (how to make: hard boil eggs. Peel the shell and use a pack of breakfast sausage and mold around the hard boiled egg. Place on cooking sheet on parchment paper or foil and cook for approx 25 minutes at 425 F.)

Veggies. Celery sticks, carrot sticks, green/red peppers, etc.

As time goes on, you just aren’t as hungry because your body is getting all the right nutrients to keep it full and satisfied 🙂
