Celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins
Mix some peanut butter and raisins in a bowl and enjoy with celery sticks.
Homemade snack bars
I make my own homemade snack bars instead of buying them from the market. I combine a good mixture of fats, proteins and complex carbs to keep me satiated and full of energy throughout the day.
- 1 cup nut butter (I prefer almond)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
- 3 cups of mix-ins (examples are; sesame seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, raisins, chocolate chips, and walnuts) but you can add more, dried fruits and the like.
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees (F). Then mix all ingredients in a quality blender, make sure it is thoroughly blended. Then measure out ¼ scoops of the mixture and put them onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes then take it out. Enjoy!
Greek yogurt with almonds and raisins
Have a delicious bowl of yogurt and add some almonds and raisins and enjoy. You can spice it up by adding healthy nuts or dried fruits.
Crackers with homemade beet hummus or tzaziki
Crackers taste great with some homemade beet hummus or tzaziki. Try getting crackers that are gluten free and minimally processed. They also come in different sizes. Enjoy!
Cottage cheese topped with blueberries, raspberries and sprinkled with cinnamon
This is another delicious snack. Having a bit of fat every now and then is not so bad. A bowl of cheese, topped with blue berries, raspberries and some cinnamon will make a tasty and healthy meal. You can substitute with yogurt and add some dried fruits to taste. This will get you to feel full till your next meal.
