So I am a massive fan of snacking! It keeps my energy high all day, keeps me from gorging myself during main meals when I’m starving but most of all it keeps me happy! I love eating and if I can do it 6 times a day with 6 different foods even better!
Here is a rundown of my meal habits and how I keep my body fuelled and happy 🙂
6:30am breakfast in bed with the husband. 1/2 cup oatmeal (with ground flax seed, cinnamon, Greek yogurt, goji berries, and berries)
9am start my morning snack which is usually a bag full of chopped veggies. I eat these during work a few bites at a time.
11:30/12 lunch! Leftovers from dinner the night before OR popcorn OR beans, tuna, sweet corn, mustard
2pm light afternoon snack before my workout. Usually a few spoons of Greek yogurt and fruit. Sometimes a small bowl of granola, fruit, nuts, and seeds depending on how hungry I am after lunch and depending on my workout or theday.
4pm post workout snack; usually a chocolate protein shake and fruit
6pm DINNER! Always tasty and loaded with veggies.
I usually don’t eat after dinner. I will have tea or if I’m watching a film or feeling a bit hungry then ill have a bit of air popped popcorn (a super-food snack idea).
So that is my baseline for most weekdays. It changes when I’m not working or on weekends. I thought I would share a few of my bigger snack ideas I usually have on days off work when I don’t eat as regularly and find myself a bit more hungry.
Sweet potatoes, eggs, and porridge!!! Three of natures best foods. Yesterday I had breakfast at 11 and didn’t feel hungry for lunch so about 2pm I had sweet potato chips and a fried egg. Sometimes ill have a baked sweet potto with Greek yogurt, cinnamon, and walnuts and other days ill have a few scrambled eggs and some sautéed veggies.
One of my favorites and old standbys is either greek yogurt or cottage cheese, ground flax seed, and some frozen fruit. Eaten right out of the tub, it really doesnt get any easier or tastier than this.
So my snacks and meals do tend to vary but it is always clean, healthy and very tasty!
