I’ve got a real treat for you – 3 healthy snacks that can help you make it through the mid-afternoon slump.
That’s one of my personal prime snacking times! The gap between lunch and dinner can be a bit long, and this is also when my energy dips…
Planning ahead so I have something healthy on hand is a must for me
(otherwise, it’s SO easy to go to the Triscuits or spoonfuls of peanut butter)
These snacks are surprisingly satisfying, they’re tasty AND they’re really quick to make.
PLUS, all of these snacks are high in protein and low in sugar, so they’ll easily tide you over till dinnertime … AND keep you on track with your goals!
🌼 Cucumber slices with hummus. Peel a medium cucumber and cut it into spears. Dip the cucumber into your favorite flavor of hummus and enjoy.
🌼 Turkey roll-ups: Take 4 slices of nitrate-free deli turkey and 4 pickle spears. Roll the pickles up in the turkey slices. Sometimes I put hummus in the roll-ups as well, depending on how much my body needs.
🌼 Guacamole stuffed eggs. Cut a hard-boiled egg in half, and stuff each side with prepared guacamole. So good!
(Hack for perfect hard-boiled eggs: Place eggs in a medium pot and add enough cold water to cover them, plus ½ to 1 tsp salt. Place on stove over medium-high heat and bring to a rolling boil. Cover the pot, turn off the heat, and set a timer for 20 minutes. When the timer dings, carefully drain the pot and rinse the eggs with cold water until cool. Your eggs are ready!)
I hope these snacks help you feel fit, healthy, and energized!
