Brit’s 5 Favorite Fit Snacks

16 Comments

The past couple of weeks I’ve gotten pretty sloppy with my diet :/  I’ve done a good job keeping up with my workouts, but my food choices could be much healthier.  This weekend I took mental note of my favorite “fit snacks” and am going to try to have them handy so that it’s easier for me to make healthy choices .  Keep in mind that I’m a new vegetarian (officially 2 months strong) so everything I picked is “veggie friendly.”  Here’s my list – enjoy!

1. All Natural Peanut Butter & Banana.  Either “straight up” or in frozen sandwiches like below.

2. Carrots & Hummus – not very exciting, but always tasty and gets me my daily dose of Vitamin A!

3. Kale Chips – be careful about getting flavored ones though.  While they are tasty, they sneak in extra calories that can pile up…

4. Apples dipped in Greek Yogurt – I like to sprinkle a little cinnamon on top or maybe drizzle some honey if I really have a sweet tooth.

5. Almonds and prunes – This combo is high in fiber and will clean you out real good 😉

  1. All great combos. I hope to be as fit as you when I grow up. Thanks for posting!

  2. I love, love, love apple& yogurt. Its almost always my post workout snack.

  3. I like the Peanut Butter & Banana one! The idea is not new, but the presentation makes it look like a really fun snack.

  4. I love peanut butter and bananas (or w/ apples). I love hummus, Greek yogurt! All are great snacks! Reposting this on my health/fitness page. Thanks! Welcome to the “Veggie World”.

  5. Mmm, I’m going to have to try the bananas and peanut butter!

    I love making homemade apple chips – just slice, sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 2 hours at 190 degrees.

  6. Love the snacks! I have been eating dried plums lately…they are awesome! Great little sweet treat with plenty of fiber to go around.

  7. Have you tried making your own power bars? So they have a good amount of protein, as well as fiber and carbs? Just curious…

  8. I’m always looking for new healthy snacks to incorporate into my diet so I don’t get “bored.” Thanks so much for posting; I will be trying some if not all of ’em!

Let Brit know what's on your mind!
