Snacking

Hello Friday Fitness Blog Hoppers! Happy Friday at last. So as I get more used to my new med increase and my body is coming back from this recent seizure I am feeling a lot more hungry about every 2-3hours. I have been having to bring more snacks with me to school to not be driving like a mad woman home to get something to eat.

The first few days I had my lunch pail empty by 11am and that was not good at all. So today I brought with me to space out a banana, yogurt, two 100 calorie packs and cheese stick. What did I learn from that....nothing was really heavy enough to last me long but they were all healthy and I felt better about eating them.  (yesterday I had leftover stuff crust pizza with me and that was it....I was the crazy hungry monster at 3pm! Plus I didn't feel good about what I ate.)

So over the next few days I really want to shop around and find more healthy snacks that are quick to eat and help me power through my afternoon. I foresee a trip to Sam's club!! (to some of you this is our Costco)

QOTD: What are some easy healthy snacks that you would recommend for a teacher who doesn't have much time to sit down??

I eat a lot of apples, carrots and hummus, grapes (actually, pretty much all fruit), crackers and cheese, nuts, PB and english muffin...

You need things that are a little higher in carbs, since that keeps your energy going longer! Good luck!

I am all about snacking all day long! I eat cheese sticks, crackers, rice crackers with peanut butter, handfuls of almonds...

I like to have protein and a little fat in my snacks - I think that keeps me satisfied longer. Just carbs tends to give me a sugar crash.

Laughing Cow cheese wedges with an apple.

Apple with pb or almond butter.

Banana and a few nuts


Hummus and baby carrots

Good luck!

I do a lot of Trader Joes trail mix. They have so many fun varieties I never get tired of any of them.

Apples, greek yogurt, nuts - those are my go to favorites. I find that planning is key.
