When it comes to snacks. I keep it super simple. Your snacks and snack portions should be tailored to your fitness goals as they are an important part of your diet. Here are a couple of my go to snacks.
Depending on my goals, I will increase or decrease the portions accordingly.
NUTS – Almonds, Pecans, Cashews, Walnuts, Pistachios are all good sources of healthy fats, protein, and fiber to fuel you and satisfy your hunger.
FRUIT – Apples, Oranges, Pears, Grapefruit, Cherries, Plums, Strawberries are all relatively low glycemic fruits that will provide you with essential vitamins and nutrients to boost your overall energy and health. If you are going to have sugar, I recommend you have natural sugar from fruit sources.
BOILED EGGS – Yup! Protein packed and easy to store and eat. Boil a couple of eggs and store them in sandwich bags or Tupperware. You can pre-peel them or peel them when you are ready to get your snack on.
VEGGIES – I always emphasize the importance of eating your veggies. Slice up a few fresh veggies that you like, store them in sandwich bags or Tupperware and reach for them when its snack time.
Keeping clean snacks within arms reach, keeps you in a position to WIN!
Get creative, mix and match snacks and stay focused!
