Archive for Quick Bites

To busy to make breakfast?!

If you cut up all your veggies for the week, once a week, you can just pull them out when you want them. This is one of my favorite quick meals.

Snack Better

I get it & I am not above it. We are gonna snack…. so let’s just make better decisions while we do it.

Whipped Peanut Butter & Celery ~ It has 25% less calories & fat than regular Jif peanut butter. It has 140 calories per two tablespoons. Sometimes if I get hungry real late this is my go to snack. One spoonful.

Ostrich Jerky ~ 80 Calories, 14g Protein. So good & easy for an on the go snack that actually fills you up!!!

Carrots & Hummus ~ The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends hummus for just this purpose. It’s low in calories & high in dietary fiber. 2 tablespoons of hummus is about 46 calories and has 2 g of dietary fiber. Tufts University recommends hummus as a convenient snacking food. Combine raw vegetables such as bell peppers slices, broccoli or baby carrots with hummus for a low-calorie snack.

Dried fruit & nuts ~ They come in super handy when you’re ON-THE-GO! Nuts provide a great source of protein & good fat while the fruit will give you an energy boosting source of carbs (perfect for replenishing muscle tissue).
