One of the easiest areas to go off track when trying to eat healthy is snacks. We often get hungry in the middle of the day or late at night and reach for the wrong things because there are no healthy options available. Always keep healthy snacks on hand. Take them with you to work or on road trips, running errands around town, kids sports games,and of course in your kitchen. Its easy to grab the wrong thing when we need a quick pick me up and don't have a healthy option within reach. This is essential for staying on track with a healthy eating lifestyle.  Here are a few good snack ideas :
  • Apples with peanut butter, cashew butter or almond butter 
  •  Almonds, Cashews, Pistachios,Pecans - buybulk and make little 1 ounce snack bags
  •  Popcorn – Find a healthy Non GMO brand or pop your own organic  
  •  Fruit - grapes, apples , dates, bananas, blueberries , strawberries, cantaloupe slices
