I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly not one of those people who can be satisfied on just three meals a day.
While I don’t need a mid-morning snack, I often have one in between lunch and dinner- especially these days since MT and I have been eating dinner later than usual during the week.
When I do have a snack, it has to be something that doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare. It also has to be easy to eat- meaning that I can eat it while holding or feeding a baby.
Foods or liquids that are very hot or ones that require the use of utensils are pretty much out of the question as well.
Here are some of my go-to snacks:
Cherry tomatoes (Thank goodness, I didn’t realize that I loved these while I was pregnant. My heartburn would have been through the roof!)
Recently, the people over at thinkThin sent me some bars to try. I’m a white chocolate lover, so their white chocolate flavor has always been my favorite. However, I’m newly obsessed with their thinkThin Divine bar in German chocolate coconut. It is seriously delicious. If you like peanut butter, you’ll also love the chunky peanut butter bars.
The bars make a perfect healthy snack because they can be eaten on-the-go, and they are low in sugar, contain protein, and are gluten-free.
I’m really excited because thinkThin is going to send one lucky reader SIX boxes of their Divine bars. The winner will get two boxes of each flavor, including the German chocolate coconut that I adore.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me about your favorite healthy snack. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, March 19th and will be selected at random. Please make sure that you provide an email address or Twitter handle when you enter, so I can contact you if you’re the winner.
Easy to eat is definitely a requirement these days I live off baby carrots and hummus at home, but for work I try to find a healthy bar that doesn’t contain soy protein (not an easy task!) Right now, I’m eating Nature’s Path Peanut Choco and Choconut (coconut flavored) bars which are great. At night, it’s always either an apple or a dark chocolate covered banana (Diana’s brand) though my mom just turned me onto a super easy snack that’s delish – frozen sliced bananas sprinkled with cinnamon (or cinnamon sugar for a sweet tooth). Getting hungry just thinking about all this!
Great Post! I have been snacking between Lunch and Dinner lately too. I have got to try those bars – in a bit of a rut lately. I enjoy snacking on unsalted nuts, Cuties:), applesauce or banana or fruits/veggies:) Happy Tuesday!
