Power Snacking

Need something to hold you over in between meals??

For snacks, you’re going to want to keep them under 200 calories so you don’t over eat or feel too full for your next meal. Don’t forget to drink a glass of water first to see if you’re just thirsty, or actually hungry and try having just one snack in between meals! Looking for something sweet? Try a fruit with peanut butter and chocolate chips!

**Overall reminder, keep sodium low when you eat snacks or any meal because salt will hold in your water. If you do have a lot of sodium, counteract it with more water and a banana or celery is a good diuretic that will help flush your system like water**

Snack 1: String Cheese and 100 calorie pack of almonds

Snack 2: 1 apple with 1 tablespoon of Peanut butter

Snack 3: 100 calorie pack popcorn

Snack 4: 1 piece of toast with tablespoon of peanut butter

Snack 5: Greek Light and Fit Yogurt (80 cal) with strawberries and blueberries

Snack 6: 2 stalks celery/sliced cucumbers/ plenty of carrots with 2 tablespoons light ranch. I don’t think it matters if you limit yourself with this snack because they’re good for you and are very low calories.

Snack 7: Egg whites&reduced fat shredded cheese with toast and carrots with hummus

Snack 8: 1 bagel thin with 1 tablespoon peanut butter or light whipped cream cheese!

Snack 9: 1 Banana with 1 tablespoon peanut butter

Snack 10: 1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese and pineapples, or plain

Snack 11: Balance Bar or Pure Protein Bar, clif bar, lara bar (protein punch, filling, low cal, yummy)

Snack 12: Protein shakes-low cal and filling

Snack 13: light cream cheese & sandwich thins with fruit

Snack 14: Turkey jerky (low sodium kind)
