10 Quick and Easy Snacks

Before I get into my meal tips, I thought I would give you a little recap of our weekend.  It was nice and relaxing.  Friday was the last day of school.  For those of you who don’t know I am a Jr. High teacher, so this was an awesome day!  I look forward to summers off for so many reasons.  We had a pretty chill weekend, sipping wine, watching A Dog’s Purpose, a beautiful run all capped off with free yoga in the park.  It was a great weekend!  Monday I am starting an AB challenge so check out my Facebook page for daily tips, exercises and motivation.

Now on to my Monday Meal Tip!   For “meal prep Monday” I am going to be focusing on snacks.  Now that school is out I have a tendency to graze if I am bored and so do my kids.  When I am home in the summer it is much easier for me to mindless eat.  I am a snacker!  Having snacks throughout the day helps me not over eat at my meals and it keeps me feeling energized.  I am going to focus on having my snacks already ready to go so I don’t end up grazing in the fridge or pantry all day.  This will also help for those crazy days when I am running kids around to activities, the pool or wherever we decide to go for the day.  Here are my top 10 go to healthy snack ideas!  healthy snack ideas

  1. Hard Boiled Eggs or Deviled Eggs
  2. Rice Cakes Topped with Nut Butter
  3. RX Bars (my new favorite bar, but kinda pricey)
  4. No Bake Energy Bites
  5. String Cheese and Whole Grain Crackers
  6. Shakeology:  I keep the individual packets in my person just in case.  You can easily mix it up with water in your water bottle if you need a quick and easy snack or meal replacement.
  7. Almonds and Fresh Fruit
  8. Popcorn with Coconut Oil and Sea Salt
  9. Hummus with Carrot Sticks
  10. Celery with Peanut Butter and Raisins (yes basically ants on a log)

I hope this snack ideas helped.  I would love to hear your easy snack ideas so please post them in the comments.  Have an amazing week!
