Snack Roundup

May 08, 2020

I hope everyone had a fabulous week! With Summer around the corner, and well with everyone being stuck at home I thought I would do a little snack round up of all the snacks I like to keep in the house! Throughout the day I try to have 2-3 meals and 2 snacks. Having this plan keeps me full and on track, this way I am not starving and craving the foods I should not be marshmallows...I love them!

Below I have listed out some snacks that I usually always have in the house. Most of them incorporate some type of protein. Now that I am done breastfeeding, I am really working towards getting that last 5 lbs. off, that my body likes to hold on to while nursing. Planning ahead is where I succeed. On Sundays I will pre-cut my cheese, make the protein balls, and boil the eggs.

If I go into a grocery store without a list, I end up spending 3x as much as normal. If I go into the week without any of my snacks or meals planned, we end up eating out (or in these days) and not eating as healthy as I would like to. I will add, that most of these snacks Mila will eat as well, she has always been picky about eating meat. Because of this I try to offer her other protein packed options. During this time, more than ever, I feel like it is very important to keep your day structured. 

  1. Protein (Energy) Balls - A great option for breast milk production, check out the recipes tab for my version of protein balls.
  2. Low Fat wheat thins, low fat cottage cheese and sriracha
  3. Tuna and Wheat Thins
  4. Deer Sticks and Cheese
  5. Jerky 
  6. Black Bean Chips and Salsa- A healthy alternative for chips and salsa.
  7. Hard Boiled Eggs
  8. SkinnyPop Popcorn - A splurge and my nighttime addiction
  9. Humus- There are so many different flavors out there! From chocolate to dill pickle, you will find a flavor that caters to your cravings.
