Snackies!

We are utterly slow at work. I have already made my grocery list for the next two weeks, written out a schedule for my cake decorating activities for the week, planned my workouts, and caught up on all of my blogs. What's a girl to do at work when there is no actual work to be done?

My solution:

List some of my go to healthy snack foods that I eat on a daily basis. At first I was going to list the things that I am craving right now...but I decided against posting pictures of cupcakes, candy corn pumpkins, and Oreo truffles. Your waistlines can thank me later.



For breakfast, I always have cereal. Always have, probably always will...for one reason. It's easy. Oh...and I'm lazy.

My current cereal is:


It is okay. I probably won't buy it again. I'm not a huge fan of the Fiber One cereals, but I had a coupon. I'm just hoping there are some Frosted Flakes left in the house when I'm done with this box.


I eat breakfast just before 5 a.m. so my morning snack comes around 8:45 a.m. My staples are currently:






I usually add a cup of fresh fruit to my yogurt to punch it up a little.


For lunch, I'm currently on a sandwich kick. I either do salami or chicken breast with a 35 calorie/slice bread and a very little spread of this to eliminate the dryness:



I've also been enjoying low fat cottage cheese, one of the billions of apples I have leftover from apple picking, and these:



I have an afternoon snack when I get home from the gym and then my husband and I eat dinner around 7:30 p.m. when he gets home from work. My afternoon snacks vary, but I adore these...as they usually serve as my sweet of choice:

You eat breakfast before 5 am? Ouch. That hurts. I'm on a cereal kick right now, too. Normally I don't eat it, but lately I have been. Maybe you're rubbing off on me.

I love Go Lean cereal, yum! Also, I'm on a sandwich kick and I love putting some hummus on a turkey or chicken sandwhich, adds protein and great flavor!

Blue-Eyed Bride said...

i used to love fiber one bars-- but they do a number on my tum tum. TMI?! :)

Yum. I agree with Lindsey- I LOVE Kashi's Go Lean cereals, they are so so good. As for snacks, I am totally a hummus and veggies or hummus and crackers kind of girl. I indulge in some yoghurt here and there, occasionally a protein bar from Special K or a handful or nuts. I'm also huge into fruits and berries, so they play in a lot too.I've never had a huge sweet tooth; most of my baking is done for Mr. J... so I stick to the hummus option most often.

I wish I had your eating habits! I do like fruit a lot, especially apples and pears. Almonds also are a great healthy snack. I have to admit that I don't always stick to my health plans very well...

Annnd now I'm hungry.

I love the 100 calorie packs of popcorn--yum! I never burn it--I'm really obsessive about that, so, I eat it at work every single day at around 3:30. No joke, every day.

I also love the Special K multi grain crackers with laughing cow cheese...and blue tortilla chips... And.... and... and..

Seriously my waistline is thanking you. Pumpkin treats are a weakness of mine.

Kristen said...

triscuits & cheese!

Jenn said...

i have too many weaknesses (including sour patch kids) but for healthy snacks i stick to: pretzels, granola bars, apple slices, carrot sticks and celery with peanut butter. nothing too crazy!

Tasha said...

Great post! Thanks for not tempting me with pictures of cupcakes and other types of goodness. :-) My snacks are usually apples, string cheese, granola bars or reduced fat wheat thins. I've been on a Subway kick lately for lunch or dinner.
