Who doesn’t like a quick and easy snack? I will warn you though. While this snack is easy to make and is considered “clean,” it is NOT something that’s low calorie that you just want to sit back and eat a ton of if you’re trying to lose weight. Those calories do tend to add up!
I do quick and easy, so that’s what I’m going to share here. I just dump stuff into my food processor and wait until the texture is just right. So I’ll give you a ’round about’ idea of measurement, but… if you’re as busy as I am with my million kiddos in toe and sports coming out my ears… then not having to mess up those measuring cups will just save you that extra cleaning step. Right? And who likes to wash all those dishes anyway??? Continue reading →
Parties. They’re SOOO much fun, and yet so quick to throw us COMPLETELY off track. Full of tasty appetizers, yummy drinks (not to mention those high-calorie alcoholic ones that are often available), and great conversation in which we tend to get lost while munching away.
From the moment we walk into a party, our paths are lined with temptation and yes… even… DIET-SABATOGERS. You know… those people who actually encourage you to let it all go and to just have fun. OH MY!
So what do you do? Just how DO you avoid these diet-sabotaging traps which cause you to fall completely off the wagon and yet still allow yourself to really have a little fun? (Cuz, C’mon! What’s life without having some fun! And yes… even allowing ourselves some treats?)
(UPDATE!!! The mozzarella cheese sticks belong with the BLUE container, not the red. Thank you Lindsey for pointing that out!)
We’re in an era where we’re constantly on-the-go. We’re continually running from one thing to the next or working crazy long hours at our job. It’s TOUGH to stay on top of eating clean and consuming healthy snacks throughout the day, because we just don’t want to, or simply can’t take the extra time to, plan and prepare ahead.
In honor of ALL the crazy busies out there, I’ve put together a list of grab and go items that come in single servings that you can grab from your local grocery store, Trader Joes, or a wholesale store like Costco.
PS. If you’re a fan of the 21 Day Fix, in order to simplify it for you, I’m also including the container color to head each category. Continue reading →
