#5Faves: Snack Attacks

I am a snacker. I am all about the mini-meals! If I don't eat every few hours, my low blood sugar kicks in, and either I become Sleeping Beauty or the Monster from the Black Lagoon. So what are my five go-to snacks? Glad you asked.

 For protein, I love apple slices, a colby jack cheese stick and Almond Nut-Thins (Hint of Sea Salt).

If you're looking for a new apple to try, I bought SnapDragon apples this week - new from New York, recently "bred" at Cornell University! Wonderful crunch, sweet and firm texture. Related to the Honeycrisp (delicious), and quite a worthy cousin.

For salty + sweet, I love a toasted english muffin topped with peanut butter, with a side of banana or apple slices.

For sweet, Chobaini greek yogurt - easy add ons include fruit (if not already on bottom), flax seeds, chia seeds. If you're extra decadent, I like a handful of Raisinets on the side too. The greek yogurt has protein in it too! {Plain greek yogurt is one of the few foods I can stomach during bad nausea.}

For a crunch, carrot sticks, celery sticks and hummus. Popcorn is a fun crunch too!


For texture, cut up tomatoes with mini (fresh!) mozzarella balls. Olive oil + vinegar optional; sometimes, I add avocado slices as well for more color.


What do you like to eat? Are you a snacker or do you only eat three squares a day?

  1. oohh those almond crisps sound good!! humus and carrots is a fav of mine too:)

  2. When pregnant with Cormac one of my favorite mini-meals was cottage cheese + sliced cherry tomatoes with a dash of salt/pepper. I didn't have many cravings, but that was definitely something I looked forward to eating as an after-work snack. ;) Another was toast with peanut butter and sliced bananas.
