I am almost midway through my time with Nutrisystem! I have lost 15-18 pounds (depending on the day, which is really annoying) and am in a plateau-ing period. As in, I want to be further along than I am, but also keep having events that make it hard to be strict with what I’m eating. But I’m in it to win it! And I bought a new size of pants this week: that’s two sizes down. BOOM.
Which brings me to snacks. What do you do when you want a snack? I like what’s easy and what keeps me full. That means protein and healthy fats. I love using the low-fat cheese wedges between slices of cucumber or zuccini. YUM. Nutrisystem encourages you to eat their food, but also smart carbs (think: veggies and whole grains) and power fuels (think eggs or lean protein).
Here are a few things that I have been snacking on lately. If you plan and make food ahead of time, you’re less likely to slip up and eat something easy and not-so-healthy. Prepare, people! Having a stash of this first snack or hard-boiled eggs has really been helpful to keep me out of my go-to not-so-great snacks.
Zucchini Pasta (okay, not a snack, but healthy and tasty and filling!)
What are your favorite healthy snacks??
