It seems like this is a tough time for everyone but these are some of my go to snacks
1. Plain Greek Yogurt: it's high in protein and really fills you up. I sweeten it with a little bit of fruit or 1 packet of splenda.
2. A bowl of steel cut oats withs almonds, cranberries, and honey.
These take about 20 minutes to prepare but are well worth the wait.
3. No calorie sparkling water. I don't know why but it tastes good and somehow seems to help quell my hunger.
4. Peanut Butter or Almond Butter and Banana sandwich on whole
wheat. It's a great treat. If my belts a little tigt I'll only have half a
sandwich. Make sure you measrue your peanut butter serving
(1 to 2 tablespoons)
5. 2 slices center cut bacon and apple slices. I don't eat this alot because of the saturated fat in bacon but it definitely fills you up.
6. Trail mix: almonds, pecans, raisins with mini-chocolate chips be sure to measure your serving and pair with some raw veggies to
fill it out
7. Sliced apple with 1-2 tablespoons of peanut or almond butter
8. String Cheese, Almonds, and a serving of fruit
9. My all time favorite is paleo granola. It's very high in calories so you have to keep your servings small but it's delicious. I'll also add a cut up banana to it as well.
The recipe below makes 14 servings which comes out to about 300 calories/serving
Almonds, Walnuts, and Pecans 2 cup, ground
Sunflower Seeds, without salt, 1 cup, hulled
Pumpkin Seeds, 1 cup
Coconut flake, unsweetened, 3 oz
Canola Oil, 1/4 cup
Honey 1/4 cup
Vanilla Extract, 2 tsp
Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp
Raisins or dried cranberries, 1/4 cup packed
1. Grind nuts and seeds and add to a large bowl
2. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray
3. Add 1/4 of cup canola oil and 1/4 of cup honey to small pan and heat
4. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon to pan and bring mixture to boil.
5. Remove from heat and pour over nuts and seed mixture in bowl
6. Mix well and pour onto cookie sheet
7. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees (watch closely)
8. Take out of oven, add coconut flakes and dried fruit.
Sometimes I'll also add some chocolate to the recipe as well. Friends have told me they like it better with 1/3 cup of oil and honey. But that will increase the calories.
This is not an original recipe but one I got of the internet and modified to suit my taste.
