Hope everyone is having a good week! Now that the weather is hopefully going to be staying warmer around these parts, I'm looking forward to getting back into some kind of workout/walking routine again. One of my biggest down falls with working out and trying to lose weight is snacking. After working out I used to just grab anything I felt like and sometimes that included ice cream, cookies, and other crap that basically just destroyed anything good I just did for my body. As I've gotten a bit older, I've learned to snack a little better. I was excited to hear that Nuts.com is looking to highlight bloggers' favorite high protein snacks. They are the perfect snacks to refuel your body after workouts and to keep you feeling full and satisfied- that's an important to me! Keeping myself healthy and re-energized is top priority when chasing after two 6.5 month babies! They keep me on my toes these days.
- Dry Roasted Edamame- This is seriously one of my go to's. I keep these at my desk at work.
-Roasted Cashews- These are great because I can just grab and go. They also have a spot at my desk.
- Peanut Butter and Bananas- I started this weird craving when pregnant with my boys and I still love this snack. See my pregnancy craving post. I still love this minus the chocolate milk!
- Teriyaki Beef Jerky- I will be the first to admit that I used to think that beef jerky was gross. I had actually never tried it when I said but the looks of it completely turned me off. My husband used to constantly talk about how great it was. So finally one day, I caved and it's really good. It actually is a satisfying snack and packed with protein.
- Trail Mix- I have ALWAYS loved trail mix. Even in college I would carry this stuff around in my backpack for a quick snack. I also love that I can just throw it in purse or bag whenever I just need a few bites. The M&M's are definitely a pick me up of chocolate for this chocoholic over here!
What snacks do you tend to eat? I would love to hear some new ideas. Also check out nuts.com for their healthy snacks.
