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)

-greek yogurt

-apples, bananas or celery with peanut butter

-veggies and guac or hummus

-stringcheese

-almonds

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.

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.

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
Green tea
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
Evening snack
Fruit and/or ice cream/sherbert/soy ice cream

 

Keep in mind, I’m pregnant so eating all day seems par for course.

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.
