Fork It Friday: Snacks!

When it comes to healthy snacks, it ain’t rocket science, folks. Don’t over-complicate something so simple!

Here are some very basic, very simple snack ideas to help win at life:

  • Banana either by itself, or with some nut butter (Peanut, Almond, Cashew, etc)

  • Hard-boiled Eggs

  • Beef, Pork, or Turkey Jerky

  • Carrot and/or Celery Sticks with dip (ex. Guacamole, Hummus, Salsa)

  • Apples with or w/o Nut Butter (ex. Peanut, Almond, Cashew)

  • Mixed Berries - Strawberries, Blueberries, and Blackberries, oh my!

  • Raw, Unsalted Mixed Nuts (ex. Almonds, Walnuts, Macadamia, Hazelnut)

  • Paleo Protein Bars

  • Tuna with some chopped veggies and drizzle of olive oil (My personal fave is with chopped apples for a hint of sweet)

  • Smoked Salmon with a squeeze of citrus (ex. Lemon, Lime, or Orange)

  • Yogurt (For those of you lactose intolerant, there are now yogurts made from soy, almond milk, and coconut milk!) I like to put a small handful of blueberries and almonds in my yogurt, too!

  • Make your own Trail Mix!! Throw in some almonds, walnuts, dried cranberries, dark chocolate chips, coconut shavings, and pumpkin seeds. Use your imagination!

  • Avocado Toast (There are so many bread variations today, too, so find the one that suits your dietary needs). I like to add cherry tomatoes and pine nuts on mine!
