Our Go-To Snacks

Updated: May 7




Before reading this post please note we're not telling you what to eat! We're just giving you ideas based on what we find to be successful for our busy schedules!!


On most days, we’re running around bouncing from client to client, sometimes to different buildings, so we don’t always have time to sit and eat a meal. During the workweek, we create “mini meals” for ourselves that sustain us, but are quick to eat in between clients. Notice that we pair these snacks with protein or healthy fat to sustain us. This helps keep us full for a few hours instead of a few minutes! Below are a few of our go-to’s! 



Cottage Cheese with berries and peanut butter

Mix ½ cup of cottage cheese (We like Good Culture) with your berries of choice and a tbs of nut butter for a delicious, filling and protein-rich snack. You can also use Greek Yogurt if you’re not a cottage cheese fan!


Meatballs

Yep, pure protein! They’re poppable and delicious. We use grass-fed beef from Walden Local (can also use turkey or chicken) and mix in onions, breadcrumbs (or oats for gluten free option) an egg and bit of parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Roll into balls, bake at 375 until the internal temp is 165. We make a bunch and freeze them!


Homemade trail mix

Unsalted nuts (brazil (only a few here) almonds, walnuts, pistachios) some dried fruit and maybe even a few dark chocolate chips! Watch the portion here - only ¼ of a cup!


Hard-boiled egg salad

We mix a hard boiled egg or two with a quarter of an avocado. It’s so good!


Salad in a bag

Chop up a bunch of veggie sticks like carrots, celery, snap peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers and we munch on those or dip them in guac or hummus.


Overnight oats

We eat it cold but it can certainly be eaten warm. Mix ½ cup of oats with equal parts liquid of choice (milk, milk alternative or water) 1 tbs peanut butter, quarter banana, vanilla protein powder (about ½ a scoop), chia seeds and flax seed. Leave overnight and it’s ready! We make a bunch of these and they last in the fridge for 5 days. Grab and go!


Smoothies

These are a given. Although we’d prefer whole meals sometimes we have to drink them! We add a base of whatever liquid we choose, sometimes it’s water sometimes it is milk or a milk alternative. We add protein powder, big fan of Naked brand, always add greens, some fruit, a quarter of a banana, peanut butter, chia/flax seeds and sometimes even frozen veggies like cauliflower, it’s a good binder. Mix it up and we’re good to go.
