The gold standard is that we should optimally avoid snacking, but my job is to focus on HOW you get there. It’s a transition process and in the meantime I’m here to show you the snacks that will keep you full and decrease moodiness.
Meals and snack will leave you feeling hungry and incomplete if they do not contain carbohydrates, fats, and protein. Having fibre is also a recommendation. Carbohydrates and protein give you that hearty full feeling, while fats give you the feeling of being satisfied…that’s why you crave that cheese pizza. You are really wanting the fat that it provides, but let’s look at some healthier alternatives.
2T natural almond butter, ½ cup celery, optional: sprinkle 1T chia seeds in almond butter
1 slice sprouted whole grain toast, ¼-½ cup squash on top of toast, drizzle with natural nut butter, optional sprinkle hemp seeds, eat open face
1 wheat toast, 2T natural almond butter, sliced pear, honey or agave
¼ cup black beans, ¼ cup salsa, ½ cup avocado
½ cup sweet potato, ¼ cup full fat coconut yoghurt (or dairy free alternative)
½ cup roasted chickpeas, with cinnamon
2T cashew butter, ½ banana, ¼ cup dry oatmeal. Mix together and enjoy!
½ apple, 2T almond butter, chia seeds sprinkled on top
