I wanted to share some of my fave healthy snack ideas with you! 
Preparation is KEY for success—so I ALWAYS have healthy snacks on hand. This way I never have to resort to fast food, and bonus—I save money by not grabbing food when I’m on the run =) 
Some of my fave healthy snacks:
  • Lara bars (I def have these in moderation since they’re high in sugar—it’s natural sugar from dates but still high sugar)
  • Quest bars (warning–addictive!)
  • 1/4 cup nuts (raw, unsalted—I love walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts. I measure out 1oz or 1/4 cup and put them in little baggies–nuts are awesome for you but it’s SUPER easy to eat hundreds of extra calories if you’re not careful!)
  • Apples with a packet of nut butter (I LOVE THESE!)
  • Shakeology packets
  • Mini baby bell cheese
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Hummus with carrots or cucumbers
Not all snacks are created equal!! I do NOT eat just any protein bars—you have to scrutinize your labels! You need to be able to pronounce the ingredients (ideally no more than 5 ingredients)
Watch for sugar! If some kind of sugar is the first 3 ingredients, I skip it. And if there’s more than 5 grams of sugar, I also skip it. 
Beware of fruit snacks (they’re just a big sugar bomb)
Include some kind of protein (I’ll never just have crackers by themselves—if you want crackers, make sure you understand the ingredients, portion out what you want so you don’t eat the whole box, and pair with some hummus, guac, or cheese.
Also, don’t snack just because it’s 3 pm and it’s time for a snack—be sure you’re legit hungry and your snacks fit within your daily caloric intake =) I use myfitnesspal.com to track my calories, feel free to add me at rachelngom =)
