Snack Attack!

   There were two things I loved most about preschool: Nap time & Snack time. Unfortunately I can't have nap time at work (but do make up for it on the weekends) so I have to make the most of my snacks. On a typical work day I have breakfast around 730 am, snack #1 around 10-10:30, lunch 12:30-1, snack #2 3-3:30, if I have a gym class I know I need extra energy for I will have a protein bar on the train around 5:30 and dinner during the week isn't until 8 pm. I have been researching ways to re-vamp my snacking, (see my post about 90 calorie edamame packs) and thought I would share a few yummy options with you!

Hummus & Veggies or Pita Chips
  I am a huge fan of Sabra's garlic hummus and it pairs perfectly with baby carrots or celery and if you're craving some crunchy carbs Stacy's Pita Chips, Simply Naked, 1.5-Ounce Bag (Pack of 24) are the perfect match! You can also make your own pita chips which is one of my favorite things to do, stay tuned for a recipe ;)

 Apple with peanut butter
  Protein and fruit all in one, this one definitely brings me back to my school day snacks...ya know before everyone had a peanut allergy?

 Vitalicious Deep Chocolate Vita Tops , 2-Ounce Units (Pack of 24)
  These were first introduced to me through Hungry Girl cookbooks(which I will be blogging about very soon!) They are 100 calorie muffin tops that come in a variety of flavors such as: chocolate, corn, pumpkin, and apple crumb. Personally I like to have the chocolate ones as dessert either by itself or with a little bit of peanut butter warmed up in the microwave...oh so heavenly and NONE of the guilt!

 Who doesn't enjoy the smell of freshly popped popcorn? I hope Yankee Candle comes out with that scent sometime soon because I would love to have my entire house smell of yummy popcorn all the time. The taste of freshly popped popcorn is even better than the smell and there are so many options when it comes to flavors, calories and brands. Personally I enjoy Jolly Time and 3 cups only costs me 100 calories. Filling and delicious, you cannot go wrong with these little kernels of love.

Frozen Grapes

  Instead of reaching for the ice cream try this little frozen snack. Full of flavor and fruity goodness!!

 Cottage cheese and Cantaloupe

   This is a perfect summer snack. I like the fiber one low fat cottage cheese, one 1/2 cup serving is 80 calories and meets almost all of your daily fiber needs. I either put the cottage cheese in half of a cantaloupe OR add the melon into the cottage cheese. If cantaloupe isn't in season or you prefer other options you could add almonds,pineapple or simply enjoy it plain.

String Cheese/Laughing Cow Wedges

    This one is a lunchbox throw back as well. Just the other day I was food shopping when I saw they had options such as jalepeno and smoked cheddar. I like to stick to the plain old mozzarella but it's always nice to change it up. Laughing Cow wedges have become a staple in my "diet" I use them in recipes (again thank you Hungry Girl 300 Under 300: 300 Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Dishes Under 300 Calories) or enjoy them by themselves. One wedge is only 35 calories and comes in so many flavors!

    What are your favorite healthy snacks?

Frozen grapes have always been a favorite. I also now enjoy frozen bananas in lieu of ice cream.(most of the time) I peel them, put them in a ziploc and freeze them so they are ready to eat when I am craving ice cream. I cut some in half and put popsicle sticks in them for Addison, too. I have seen some people actually whip and add flavorings to the banana to make it even more like ice cream.
