In the Mom Lane: Five Quick Snack Favs

I am super texture sensitive and have a sweet tooth that could lead me to a less nutritious option, so having a stash of ingredients to a better snack option is essential in making good, quick choices.

Greek yogurt, protein/grain/nut bar and fresh fruit is almost a daily staple around here!
  1. Greek yogurt (higher in protein, if you shop carefully, MUCH lower in sugar) plus fresh fruit and a crumbled up protein bar is a sweet, filling and nutritious snack, any time!
  2. Apples and peanut butter. What’s not to love? The cold, crisp crunch of a Granny Smith and the protein-rich sweetness of peanut butter.
  3. Cottage cheese and almonds. Again with the balance of cold and crunch, sweetness and carbs plus protein.
  4. Cheese and crackers (bonus option: thin slices of apples). Protein and carbs for a little extra pop!
  5. Hummus and pita crackers, veggies or pretzels. Usually I pick a supremely spicy or traditional Hummus from Sabra, add that cool crunch I love with carrots or some carbs with pita or pita crackers. There is nothing quite like fresh hummus, so keep your eyes out for a test of a few hummus recipes!

Which has you headed for the kitchen? What is your fav quick snack?

Happy trails!
