Well, it’s no secret that I’m a snacking queen…..
In the past it was potato chips that I’d reach for to fill my crunching habit, but now I’m much more conscious of my clean food intake and steer clear of unhealthy, high fat and high sugar foods.
The other day between phone calls and meetings, I found myself thinking back on how I used to eat….
Man, it wasn’t good! Before I started this blog, my snack habits were fueled by candy, chocolate bars, cookies….fraps and boatloads of unhealthy cereal. Blah! Thinking back on it makes me feel queasy!
So today I want to share with you some of my healthy replacements for the typical snacks…
I’ve been loving these baked chickpeas instead of chips!
“The Good Bean” provides crunch and that chip like hand movement we crave while we’re sitting watching Christmas movies, but doesn’t give you that added grease! These beans also have 5g of protein!
I got mine at Costco just the other day!
Ok…for you candy lovers out there!
Ohhhh these Xyla sugar free candies taste just like my beloved sweet tarts…..omg!! These little grape goddesses are sweetened with Xylitol and are totally sugar free, creating a no guilt experience for you!
This next snack is something I have in the evening if I’m really craving dessert….
Plain Organic Greek Yogurt! I add a scoop of my protein powder, cocoa, stevia and some blueberries! I whip it into a mousse and dive right in, nibbling at it like I would a bowl of ice cream
Soooo good!! I totally understand that dairy could be a no no for a few of my friends, so try a good low sugar almond or coconut yogurt and add some fun toppings!
As you can tell, I love to snack!!
Fill me in, what are some healthier snacks that you love?
