Sunday Snackspiration

What's your favorite snack?  

It's so easy to just grab a bag of chips or 100 calorie pack of something super processed.  But, those types of foods will just sustain your hunger for a short period.  For a better balance of carbs and protein try these snacks @ around 100 calories each.  I'll have one of these snacks between bfast and lunch and also between lunch and dinner.  I definitely can't go more than a few hours without eating!!

1. Chicken with a Cracker @ 98 calories
1 large whole grain wheat cracker topped with 1/2 tsp prepared mustard; 1 slice of low sodium nitrate free chicken breast, and 1 slice of swiss cheese.

2. Sweet Citrus Yogurt @ 96 calories
1/2 c non fat plain yogurt with 2 tsp raw honey and 1 tsp finely grated grapefruit peel.

3. Turkey Goat Cheese and Avocado Roll @ 103 calories
2 slices of low sodium nitrate free lean turkey breast, spread with 1 tbsp soft goat cheese, topped with 1/2 tsp chopped raw walnuts and 2 thin slices of avocado and rolled up.

4. Egg It  @ 98 calories
1 large hard boiled egg, cut in half, drizzled with 1/2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with 1 dash of ground black pepper.
