I’ve been working hard to eat less at each meal, and then have healthy snacks, or mini meals, in between meals. I’ve been trying to come up with good snacks that have protein and usually some vegetable or fruit. Here’s some I’ve come up with so far:
- Carrots & hummus
- Nonfat Greek yogurt mixed with salsa verde (I love the one from Trader Joe’s), cucumber cut into “chips” to dip
- Nuts – my current favorites are almonds and pistachios. Need to be really careful with portion control on these though, so I almost always weigh them
- String cheese stick and fruit
- Spinach bolani, garlic mint cheese, cilantro pesto, sliced tomato – these might be hard to find in other areas, they are from a local Afghan food maker
Anyone have any other suggestions?
