fruit and a cheese stick

1/2 a sandwich

mmm gummi bears…

i bring batches of air popped popcorn to work and snack on that. i have yogurt and carrots when they’re around. for shelf-stable options, i’ll have a few animal crackers or pretzels. 

i find it helpful to keep mints and gum around. a lot of times i have a craving for something, i just chew gum instead.

almonds, granola bars, crackers, apples, bananas, carrots, raisins

I’m a big snacker. Usually I don’t even eat a traditional “main dish” for lunch just yogurt, string cheese, V8, fruit, cottage cheese, hard boiled eggs, etc.

Lost over 70 pounds that way actually. Once I realized I didn’t have to eat the way other people do or the way diets tell you to I was off and running and never looked back 😀

I am a big snacker and until recently I would snack on everything I could buy from the take away store around the corner from my work but I now I mostly have fruit, nuts and some crackers and cheese (massive cheese fan)

I also stock up on sugarfree gum in all different flavours, I could pig out at work just out of boredom and I found having gum stops this and when I have it I realise whether I’m actually hungry or was just craving something for the sake of it.

I love baby carrots in hummus!  Otherwise I’m seriously bad at the healthy snacking.

I love the quakers rice cake snacks!  They have all these different flavors, but my favorite is salt & pepper, and I’ve even found some guacamole flavored ones in a different brand that are AMAZING!!  Also, trail mix never fails.

I like to snack on carrots or celery, or apples (with or without a little bit of peanut butter or nutella). Popcorn is good in small doses too, a couple of crackers, or a handful of nuts.

Air Popped Pop Corn is a fav…crackers, greek yogurt (definitely fills me up), oranges, cottage cheese (I know, most people think it’s gross but I like it), berries, grapes…

Almonds. I like to buy the 100 calorie packs from Emerald (I think that’s the brand, the green boxes). You can get almonds mixed with walnuts too. Or I eat granola bars but I don’t know if stuff that’s packaged and processed could really be healthy…I tend to think if I didn’t cook it myself or eat it in its natural state it’s probably not great for me.

fruit is def the way to go. Apples & peanut butter. Grapes. Peaches. Plums. pineapple chunks. Strawberries. Blueberries. Raspberries. Watermelon. I def allow myself to eat as much as I want of fruit. It makes me feel like ive eaten A LOT and even though its sugar, its still wayyyyyyy better for you than all the processed sugary cookies, cake, etc.

I do the airpopped popcorn as well.  I keep a bag of the TJ’s ABC trail mix (includes almonds, bluberries, cranberries and raisins) at my desk and portion out the 1/4 serving or I’d eat a lot of it.  I also like to make a white bean and spinach dip and eat some of it with carrots.  String cheese is also awesome. 

I find that I don’t eat a lot of fruit in the winter but I’m all over it in the summer.  Frozen grapes?  Yes please!  Luckily I don’t crave sweets too much but it’s still hard not to grab the mini snickers and reese’s that are all over the office!
