Hello friends! I’m sorry it’s been a little quiet over here. I normally reserve time on the weekends for blog posts, but I was camping on Orcas Island all last weekend and didn’t do a good enough job of planning ahead – oops! That seems to happen when life is full of good things 🙂 Stay tuned for a few fun posts/updates coming your way next week!
I wanted to share a quick snack ideas with you since I often receive requests for healthy snack recipes. My rule of thumb with snacking: include a protein! Protein will help you stay full between meals without adding empty calories. We want our snacks to be nutrient-dense and also delicious, which is why I like to add fruit and nuts to my favorite snacks. I’m also a huge fan of different textures, and this snack has it all!
- plain greek yogurt (full fat or fat free)
- pumpkin seeds
- banana, sliced
- sprinkle of chia seeds
- drizzle of peanut butter
- dash of ginger
Mix it all together using, and you’re all set! This recipe also makes for a great dessert alternative if you’re looking to limit the amount of added sugar/fat you consume. The greek yogurt and chia seeds are fully of protein, you’ll get in at least a serving of fruit with the bananas/raspberries/blueberries, and the pumpkin seeds/peanut butter are full of healthy fat (which helps you keep you full longer!) I love the ginger for an added kick 🙂 It’s the perfect snack full of different flavors and textures – yum!
