Would you like to know one of the biggest struggles I’ve found working from home?
Making healthy food choices.
Seriously, It’s so easy to fall prey to that hunger strike and purposefully (and mindlessly) snack throughout the work day on any and everything you have laying around. I will completely admit that I am a huge snacker and find myself trotting down to the kitchen far too often than I want to admit. A week or so ago I talked about creating a morning routine to keep myself on track with living a better lifestyle. One thing I have been trying to incorporate at some point in the morning is preparing snacks for my busy days.

With trying to up my hydration game sometimes I need something a little more tasty to drink. Lately I’ve been grabbing one of the many Honest Tea® flavors because they are just a tad sweet and still help to keep me on track with making better choices. They also pair perfectly with Lorissa’s Kitchen which is a delicious, prep-free protein snack using only responsible raised proteins, like 100% grass-fed beef, and responsibly raised pork ! It is also high in protein, low in carbs, fat, has no MSG or preservatives and is gluten free – WHEW, what a great snack option right?!

I’ve been really good about portioning out my snacks lately (so I don’t overeat) and when I’m on the road all day traveling to and from photography sessions, meeting friends, going to meetings – I need snacks that are going to keep me on track. I’ve been hitting up Walmart to grab some of my essential snacks to prepare at the beginning of the week and keep on hand for when that “I’m hungry” feeling strikes!

My Go-To Snacks Lately:

  1. Nuts (pistachos, cashews, almonds, etc)
  2. Lorissa’s Kitchen flavors!
  3. Dried fruit!!! (with no added sugar)
  4. Dried plantains…give me all the things!
  5. Honest Tea – gives me a different flavor to keep my hydration game strong!
  6. Apples & Bananas

 

All of these snacks help to fuel my body to keep me from being starving all the time. The more I learn about nutrition, fueling my body, and becoming stronger,  the more I realize how important it is to plan ahead and make the best choices when it comes to my in-between moments. Since I am a lover of learning; I would love to know what some of your favorite snacks are to keep the hunger at bay!
