Do you snack during the day?
I’m definitely more of a grazer — eating a little lighter
and more frequently throughout the day. For body weight it doesn’t seem to
matter. Others have told me it’s too time consuming to think about eating 5 or
6+ meals each day. But for me it works.
What about you? Here’s a scenario I hear about time and time
You’re at work. It’s 2 PM. Your eyes are starting to roll to
the back of your head and your stomach is starting to “yell” at you.
It’s the vending machine “calling.” Obviously you
have to cave, right? WRONG!
Finding a great option in the vending machine is like
finding a needle in a haystack. But here are a few snacks to satisfy your
salty, sweet, or crunchy cravings!
Sure, some, but not all of them would work at the office,
but that same snack calling can come at home too.
Got a craving for salty foods?
Try any of these:
Sliced cucumber with
a pinch of salt and black pepper
Toasted chick peas
(drain and rinse canned chick peas, toss with 1 tsp olive oil, sprinkle with
kosher salt and chili powder. Toast in a pan over medium heat, tossing
occasionally, until crispy)
KIND Dark Chocolate
Nuts & Sea Salt – it’s convenient, has ingredients you can pronounce and
combines a little dark chocolate goodness with a hint of salty flavor. I love
keeping these in my bag and desk, so I’m never without a quick, easy, smart
Craving sweet foods?
Sliced melon with a
squeeze of lime juice
with a drizzle of melted chocolate
Grilled plum with a
scoop of Greek yogurt (a personal favorite)
Craving crunchy foods?
Baby carrots with
Wasa Crispbread (LOVE
this) with a slice of tomato, avocado & smoked salmon
Apple slices with
pieces of Cabot seriously sharp cheddar cheese mini bars
There you have it — 9 different snacks to attack your salty,
sweet, or crunchy cravings head on!
