Transitioning from unhealthy to healthier and more beneficial snacks can be difficult to do. It’s so much easier to grab that bag of chips or an already packaged processed meal. It can also be just a habit of ours, we want things fast. We don’t have time. But is it really that we don’t have time or we don’t attempt to make the time to nourish our bodies with the right stuff?

Here’s one helpful tip for you to start making time to prep those healthy meals. Let’s say you spend 30 minutes on the phone. Scrolling through your favorite social media app. Try cutting that in half. Now you will be spending more half of that time making a snack or prepping a small meal for your next workday.

In this post I want to focus more on daily snacks. I am one to snack in-between my meals. Every three hours is recommended for us to eat something. Either a meal or a snack. In between my meals i’ll either have a almonds, sliced apples and peanut butter, goji berries, yogurt, or a thin stacker. Which is what I am going to share with you today. How to dress up a thin stacker with a perfect balance of protein, fiber, and other nutritional values.

I came up with three simple snack using easy to find ingredients.

first one is a morning snack. Or depending on how much time you have in the morning, it can be your breakfast meal if you’re in a rush:

Morning

  • 1 boiled egg
  • chia seeds
  • sliced avocado
  • hot sauce (Green habanero sauce pictured)
  • Thin grain cake

This stacker is packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fatty oil. add a handful of berries of your choice and a glass of milk or orange juice

Noon

Strawberries and blueberries are a good natural source of energy. So this one is perfect to eat midday to keep you going during the afternoon. It is important to balance the sugar from the fruit with protein. The grain cracker and flax seeds both have a decent amount of protein. But if you want to add a little more. Peanut butter is always the best choice.

Evening

  • Thin grain cake
  • peanut butter
  • crushed pretzels
  • sliced bananas
  • chia seeds
  • honey( carmel honey company)

I like adding chia seeds to mostly everything I eat. Can you tell? In the evenings is when I usually crave something sweet. This one has both bananas, and honey to satisfy my sweet tooth. i’ll make 3 of these and enjoy it with a glass of almond milk.

 

Have any great snack ideas? I’d love to read them down below.
