How to guide: Healthy snacking

Posted in Nutrition 101

We’ve all suffered the dreaded mid-afternoon (or morning) munchies. If you’re unprepared, before you know it the vending machine is beckoning, or your colleague’s baking is looking tempting. Stop! Avoid committing snack suicide, read our list of healthy ideas. You’ll never find yourself up snack creek without a paddle again.

The quick and easy

The key to becoming a successful snacker is preparation. But that doesn’t have to mean hours of meal prep and endless stacks of Tupperware. Here are a few quick and easy options to throw in your gym bag or desk draw to hand on hand when hunger strikes:

  • Seeds and nuts (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, cashews, macadamias)
  • Nut butters – when buying look for 100% nuts or you can make your own.
  • Hardboiled eggs
  • Sardines
  • Smoked salmon
  • Cold, sliced meat
  • Avocado/guacamole
  • Olives
  • Coconut
  • Fresh and dried fruit (berries are a good choice)
  • Veggies (celery, cucumbers, peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc)
  • Pickles
  • Sauerkraut - great for gut health
  • Dried seaweed
  • Quality dark chocolate – in moderation

For all dairy eaters out there:

  • High quality cheese
  • Full-fat yogurt

Snacks that require preparation

If you have a little more time on your hands, here are some more substantial snacks you can prepare the day before:

  • Leftovers (cold bacon, chicken drumstick, steak and just about anything else from the night before)
  • Les Mills Protein shake. Check out our current favorite here.
  • Primal nut mix
  • Primal energy bar
