Healthy Snacking

Eating clean, for me, is easy Monday – Thursday.  Come Friday – Sunday, all I want to do is pig out on unhealthy snacks.  About 6 months ago I decided to “meal” prep my snacks so that it would be easier to stay on track.  Surprisingly, this helps me not only over the weekend but during the entire week.  It’s easy to do and I encourage you to have a snack tray in your pantry as well as the fridge/freezer.  Try it out!

This week’s fridge/freezer snacks included boiled eggs, snack baggies of grapes, cucumber, strawberries, mini peppers, sugar snap peas, Greek yogurt, to-go peanut butter, and string cheese.  I freeze a few yogurts and snack baggies of grapes so that when I’m craving a sweet treat I can choose something much healthier.



**Tip: DO NOT keep junk food in your house as it’s sooo tempting to eat it.  If you have children and need to have some snack foods for them, try making a healthy snack tray just for them to grab from.  It will help keep you on track if you’ve got your family members on board with you.
