Healthy Snack Ideas

Lunch today came up fast! Clearly my work had me all wrapped up and in the zone because it was only my stomach’s grumbling that made me glance at the clock and realize it was noon.

Today’s lunch used salmon leftover from last night’s dinner.

I made myself a salmon salad wrap just like the one I made last week. Next time I make my salmon salad, I’ll may more attention to the exact ingredients because I have a feeling my fellow salmon lovers out there would really enjoy it!

And now I must run to another Taste of Ocala committee meeting, but before I head out, let’s talk healthy snacks!

Since my blog doesn’t document everything that I eat, my snacks almost always go unpictured. But the thing is, I love snacking and eat two to three snacks every single day.

My snacking style usually goes in phases. I’ll eat the same thing for my morning snack for a month and then I’ll get sick of it and switch to something else for a month until I get sick of that snack.

Lately, however, the variety of my snacks has increased. Since I am always on the lookout for healthy snack ideas, I figured you guys might enjoy a glimpse into some of my snack-time favorites!

I try to eat snacks that have protein, fat and carbs and often try to include fresh fruit and veggies if possible.

Here are some of my current favorites:

  • Cottage cheese (I love 2 percent) topped with a sliced apple and cinnamon

granola overnight oats 004

oatmeal walnut date balls

oatmeal banana flax muffin

  • Ricotta cheese topped with a sliced pear, slivered almonds and pumpkin pie spice

    It would be very nice to have the recipe to the salmon salad. It looks very good and I would love to make it

    About a month ago I was in search of some new snacks ’cause I was beyond bored with my current snack rotation. I came across the list that I had pinned and decided to go with the cottage cheese, apple, and cinnamon. Growing up I detested cottage cheese, but figured I’d give it another go. OMG. I eat this everyday alongside some steamed veggies with my lunch and I LOVE it. I’ve subbed the apples a few times with sliced peaches or mixed berries, depending on what I have on hand.
