Top 5 Healthy snacks

I only have two weeks left of seeing my food coach and I thought I would share some of the food I have now made part of my weekly plan. Today I am starting with snacks as this has probably been one of the things I have had to change the most. It is so easy to graze on lollies, or just buy a chocolate bar at the shop so I try and keep one of these snacks in my handbag. At work I am often tempted by the lolly jar so its a good idea to have some healthy choices on hand.

5. Avocado on toast – so easy but so delicious. This is my current go to breakfast. I add a pinch of salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon

4. Be natural trail bars – these are my favourite muesli bars. Full of whole grains and are really filling. I highly recommend the honey flavour, but berry is good as well. I usually have one of these for morning tea with a cup of Lady Grey Tea.

3. Lucky mixed nut boxes – I love nuts and can eat them until a whole bag is gone. These handy little boxes reduce the amount I can eat in one sitting and are also really filling.

2. Berry and banana smoothie – unfortunately with the price of bananas these are currently only berry smoothies. I just throw in a bag of frozen berries, 1 cup of skim milk, a table spoon of honey, 2 table spoons of low fat yoghurt and a few ice cubes and blend.

1. Skinny Cows - this is my naughty snack but a good alternative to full fat ice cream. My favourite are the ice cream cookies, yum! However being a big mint lover I had to try these.

What is your favourite healthy (or not so healthy) snack?

  1. Avocado on wheat bread is one of my favorite things . . . and in the summers, I add sliced tomatoes. DELICIOUS! Other healthy snacks I love: edamame, larabars (all raw/vegan), carrots & hummus, Greek yogurt & fruit, and cottage cheese. Skinny cows = mmmmm.

    Although I love fruit and natural yoghurt for snacking, I admit to also loving buttered toast and crisps at times too.

  12. Ohh this is wonderful Megan. You are working so hard at eating healthy. I'm too lazy but I know I should start doing that. I want to try avocado on toast. It would be a good alternative to my usual cereal.

    I sometimes eat raw snow peas as snacks. Or corn. I miss bananas too :( I would like to make a smoothie with them. x

  14. I love avocado everything! Mmm I bet it tastes great on toast! So cool that you have a food coach. Skinny Cows are the BEST but the problem I have is I always eat more than one

  16. Yummm, avacado on toast. So so good.

    I'm trying to be a better snacker too, I've started having dried fruit, and roasted almonds or trail mix. I love rice crackers too! And making my own popcorn (in a saucepan on the stove) to eat instead of potato chips.
