The title speaks for itself – ideas, please!
The title speaks for itself – ideas, please!
I have the same question!! I am addicted to veggies and hummus, and cottage cheese at the moment. I’d love to hear what other bees snack on. My fav lunch is a whole wheat wrap with chicken, veggies and ranch dressing. Suppers are where I struggle!
I’m a big fan of anything I can make for my lunch that takes about 30 seconds or less. Some go-tos would be:
-.hardboilec eggs (I make 5 on sunday night and grab them throughout the week)
-apples, bananas or celery with peanut butter
-veggies and guac or hummus
For lunch I have lettuce wraps with lean lunchmeat and crunchy veggies (carrots, peppers). If you have a microwave or fridge I also love cereal or instant oatmeal.
Hummus with crackers or even better, with veggies
Sushi (nothing deep fried!)
I cut apples and mozzarella cheese into little cubes. I put them in a tupperware with grapes and a couple of whole grain crackers and it’s a pretty satisfying snack.
-plain one minute oatmeal with a pinch of nutmeg, a few dashes of cinnamon, and a drizzle of honey.
-whole wheat toast with peanut butter, a banana, and a hard boiled egg
-whole wheat english muffin with scrambled egg, bacon, and cheese
-sandwich on whole wheat bread
-salad with hard boiled egg or grilled chicken
-cottage cheese with peaches or pineapple
-celery with peanut butter
-carrots/broccoli/cucumber with red pepper hummus
-grilled chicken or fish with brown rice & steamed veggies
-any skinnytaste casserole 🙂
-build-your-own tacos with lean ground beef or chicken
-tuna melts on wheat
-grilled steak, sweet potato, steamed veggies
-frozen yogurt with berries
-smoothies (handful frozen berries, greek yogurt, splash of juice for sweetness)
-I’m not going to lie… I eat chocolate chip cookies & pastries. I aim for moderation here and while I try, I don’t always succeed 😛
favorite healthy snack: cut up cucumbers with lime
@DaneLady: I am on Skinny Taste right now! I am sitting here with a calendar planning out meals for the next month (seriously). I finally got MrPanda99 onboard and he said he will eat whatever I make and make whatever I request. I keep finding excuses, but excuses no more! The casseroles are a great idea because they will last for days!
I eat literally all day! Here is my normal day, you can see much of it is just a bigger meal broken down and spread out over several hours. I’m lucky that I have an office job that allows this or I would be starving all day.
Breakfast (over the course of 3 hours)
Oatmeal with peanut butter, chia seeds, raisins and cinnamon
1 Hard boiled egg (or microwaved scrambled egg)
Decaf tea with creamer
Lunch (over the course of 4 hours)
1 peice of fruit (apple, orange, pear, banana, etc)
Salad of mainly greens with vinegarette dressing and cheese sprinkled on
1 cup baby carrots and a whole tomato (I’ve been craving tomatoes so I eat them like apples)
1 cup Full fat plain yogurt with cheerios
Dinner (I eat with my DH, so in one sitting)
Protein and veggie, sometimes something starchy like rice, potato or bread
Water or 1% milk
Fruit and/or ice cream/sherbert/soy ice cream
Keep in mind, I’m pregnant so eating all day seems par for course.
Steamed Broccolini or asparagus with a light dressing of balsamic vinegar
yoghurt and muesli mix
kiwi fruit and aapple
avocado and feta on toast 🙂
I love hummus! I also make my own tziki sauce and homemade pita chips, so whenever I feel like being healthy, I’ll just have some of those.
I have lately been on a popsicle kick lately and I have been making some delicious fruity treats (strawberry & lime, pink lemonade…)
@MrsPanda99: I KNOW! My countdown can no longer vote or buy cigarettes. AHHHHH! Are you still coming for cake? 😉
Yup, pita chips are super easy. Preheat the oven to 350, cut the pita bread into triangles, sprinkle on a little olive oil, salt, pepper and some other seasoning if you’re adventurous (I love putting onion powder on mine) and bake for about 5-10 minutes until they are crispy.
Favourite healthy snack – air popped popcorn (no butter… which makes me sad, but obviously it’s better that way), raw carrots, berries.
Favourite healthy meals: Ethiopian food (especially vegetarian dishes with lentils and beans, which I’m making tonight); Indian curries (I just limit the oil/ghee); home-made vegetarian empanadas (our favourites are squash/goat cheese and kale/ricotta); vegetarian soups, lots of veggies or beans or lentils; fish tacos; grilled veggie tacos; veggie stirfry; baked fish and grits with sauteed veggies (we don’t butter our grits; you can use polenta instead); falafel and hummus in pitas.
