I don't snack much during the week because I'm at work, but on the weekends I graze all day long. It's so easy to eat granola bars, fruit snacks, bags of chips, cookies, and even 100 calorie packs. Now the 100 calorie packs are good because of the portion control, but they're full of sugar, bad carbs, and preservatives. Not good! Resist!
My favorite snack option? Veggies and Hummus, or Fruit and Yogurt!
Now here's what I do every Saturday after my weekly grocery shop - I chop up all of my veggies and put them in tupperware or make a mixture in ziplock bags so I can grab and go all week long.
I make my own hummus at home with just a touch of tahini to keep it low fat, and I use plain yogurt with some honey and almond extract for my fruit.
You're SO much more likely to eat your veggies when they're waiting for you like the granola bars in the pantry.
Some of my favorites:
Cucumber Sticks or Rounds
Bell Pepper Strips
I also like to get a big melon or pineapple every week and chop it up and keep it in the fridge. You're much more likely to grab pineapple or watermellon chunks over ice cream when it's waiting for you and you don't have to process it!
