Whether it’s a tailgate party or a mid-afternoon munch, snacking healthy increases our energy levels and can actually keep us from over-indulging at our next meal. Snacking doesn’t replace meals, but if we think of our metabolism as a small fire, we add fuel to the fire with our snacks. Sometimes, if we don’t snack, we end up overeating at our meals. A good snack isn’t a candy bar or a soda, but rather a piece of fruit, or a handful of veggies or nuts. Make sure the quality of your snack is of high caliber—think of it as putting premium gas in your tank! Here are some you can add to your grocery list this month: Homemade Nut Mix Cashews Pistachios Dried Cherries Raw Almonds Pumpkin seeds (from your harvest pumpkin) The great thing about this mix is you can add any nut or dried fruit you like. It is your own masterpiece! I make enough for a gallon-sized bag, then that is my healthy snack for the week. Caution: Add small amounts of chocolate and/or pecans if added to mix. Steer clear of smoked almonds as they add unnecessary amounts of sodium. These 2 tips will keep you snacks healthier. Grilled Zucchini Zucchini, sliced lengthwise Garlic, fresh cloves or powder Balsamic vinegar Parmesan cheese *Optional Slice the zucchini lengthwise. Place on the grill. Season with garlic and balsamic vinegar. Flip and season again. Add the parmesan cheese. Serve immediately. Protein Shake 1 c. almond milk (vanilla flavored is good here, too) 1 banana 1 Tbsp of peanut butter 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder Handful of ice 1 Tbsp flaxseed* *optional. Why flaxseed? One tablespoon can have 10 times the omega 3’s than a serving of fish! Great source of fiber, too.
