Snack Time

My favorite time is snack time, but I don't always have time to put together a healthy snack. 
Having good-for-you snacks that you can toss in your work bag, purse, or desk draw that can be eaten on-the-go will save you on busy days. But make sure they are balanced. 

I love LARABAR and feel comfortable feeding them to my daughter, too. They have simple ingredients and rate just right. Remember, snacks should have at least 2 different check marks.

Breakfast

Start your day with a balanced breakfast and you could potentially conquer the world. 😉

  • Protein- 2 eggs + 2 egg whites. 
  • Carb- Tomato Basil wrap. 
  • Vegetable - spinach + avocado. 
  • Fruit- n/a.
  • Dairy- n/a. 
  • Fat- avocado. 
Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili

Yum. That's all I have to say. I made a big batch of sweet potato, black bean chili without meat. This leaves me the option of pairing it with whatever I want or eating it by its self for a snack (or even breakfast)! It rates pretty great, too.

Here I paired it with a grilled pork chop. 

  • Protein- pork chop (black beans).
  • Carbs- sweet potato (and corn).
  • Vegetables- tomatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, black beans, onion, peppers etc. 
  • Fruit- n/a. 
  • Dairy- n/a. 
  • Fat- n/a. 

I know I usually say 4-6 checks for every main meal. I could have topped this with cheese, sour cream, or even toasted seeds. I just didn't, ha. Not perfect all the time.
