Alternate snack ideas

Sick of Fruits and Veggies

Who doesn’t get bored of the same old snack(s), day after day? We all do at some point.

Here are a few snack ideas to keep you satisfied, focused and on-top of your game to ensure you’re putting your best foot forward at work and in your workout routine.

Hardboiled eggs are extremely filling, and if you toss the yolk, you’re missing out on key nutrients (80% of the a whole egg’s nutrients comes from the yolk), like: iron, potassium, folate, choline, biotin selenium and more. Try an egg or two as a mid-morning snack.

Air Popped Popcorn
Skip the microwave, straight out of a bag kind, and pop your own. Popcorn is a corn kernel, which is considered a whole grain, so as long as you’re not dousing it in butter, cheese and/or salt, popcorn is not a bad idea for a mid-afternoon snack.

String Cheese
A fun-to-eat-snack, that’s filled with protein and calcium. However, aim for a low-fat version if possible, because cheese can be high in saturated fats.

From roasted red pepper and chipotle to garlic and lemon dill, there are so many different flavors to try. Pair a few tablespoons of hummus with veggies or Protings, and you’ve got yourself a protein and fiber-rich snack.

Mixed Nuts
A handful a day of raw, or dry roasted mixed nuts is packed with healthy, unsaturated fats and protein to keep you feeling full for a while.

Don’t always feel like you have to stick to fruits and veggies, there are plenty of other quick and healthy options to change up your options. Don’t let your snack-boredom get the best of you! Happy snacking!
