Trim Down Thursdays~Favorite Healthy Snacks

I am super excited to be joining my friend Amanda from Coping with Frugality in a journey to trim down and get healthy this year and stay healthy for years to come!  We are planning on sharing our fitness goals, what works for us and what doesn’t, what we are doing to stay on track along with healthy recipes and snack ideas.  We are going to hold each other accountable for our health and posting every Thursday and would love you all to share with us your journeys too!

This week to get started we are talking food, snacks to be precise!  I know as a busy mom and wife I get sidetracked and forget to eat until late afternoon sometimes which is definitely not a good thing.  One of my goals is to make sure there are always some quick and easy snacks in the kitchen for not only myself but my entire family.  For me the quicker preparation time the better and I don’t want to fall into bad habits (candy/chips) so I need variety too.  I love salty and sweet so I have to have both covered and readily available so here are some ideas I came up with:

  • yogurt (flavored or add your own fruit and granola)
  • baked chips (100 calorie portions pre made up from a larger family size bag)
  • cheese and deli meat wrapped in lettuce (dark leaf)
  • fresh fruit
  • frozen fruit bars
  • applesauce
  • Special K bars
  • nuts (watch the salt/flavorings)
  • fresh veggies
What do you think?  Any ideas for some great snacks that are easy, healthy and even kid friendly maybe?  If you want to write about it and link up with us we would love to have you!
