What’s your favorite quick healthy snack?

Advertisements

Hey everyone! I’d like to know what your top super quick prep homemade snacks are? So nothing commercially bought or protein shakes. I’m looking for things like cutting up an apple and dipping it in peanut butter sprinkled with cinnamon or a half an avacado sprinkled with cayenne pepper. Basically something that’s healthy quick and can fill the gap between meals and after workouts. We all have busy lives and it’s so easy to grab something that’s pre-made and filled with all the wrong things so I’d like to compile a list of my favorites to share with everyone!

    While it’s not as impulsively quick as picking up and slicing an apple ‘to go’, I really do love having a tray full of date-lemon-bran squares on standby in the kitchen for whenever a sweet-tooth or low-energy craving kicks in….typically just in time for a run:-) Incredibly simple and 100% natural ingredients, they’re packed to the punches with energy, naturally sweet and refreshing, and are absolutely LOADED with nutrients and much-needed minerals to help you stay fit and healthy. The bran binder helps give them some meaty texture to the teeth without having any of the tiring effects of traditional flour or gluten-based squares.

    Recipe? Thanks to the naturally sticky and sweet miracle that are “dates”, it couldn’t be simpler, really! Hardly any ingredients and minimal prep:

    Break packaged of dry (pitted) dates down a bit by hand first, then place in medium saucepan over low to medium heat. Just enough to help them break down. Squeeze 1 full lemon and pour in half a cup of water (or Orange Juice if you don’t mind extra sugar…adds a nice balanced citrus kick to the lemon); and let the dates ‘melt down’ into the liquid mixture. Allow to reduce. Gently fold in half a cup of bran + 1/4 cup of almond flour (I make this myself, using oven-toasted almonds in a blender until a crunchy flour consistency). Turn heat down to low, just enough to allow bran and almonds to absorb any residual liquids and ‘cook’. By folding you’re creating delicious pockets of layers of bran, date ‘goo’ and almond crunch. Spread mixture into a glass casserole and chill in fridge.

    Slice into squares and go!

    One of my favourite easy and pretty healthy go to energy snacks is simply a tablespoon of natural peanut butter (gotta be chunky!) spread inside a pita or tortilla wrap and then a banana on top. Roll that bad boy up and you have a quick nutritious snack with some good protein, carbs and fats! #NomNomNomNomNom

    Well you mentioned my suggestions from Twitter in your original post 😉

    Let’s see, another one would be edamame with a bit of butter and salt.

  4. My go to is usually Greek yogurt and granola with almonds. Or if you’re not a yogurt fan, the almonds alone are perfect!

  6. Slice a peeled banana in half and spread peanut butter on it. My favorite quick and healthy snack!

Day one of @feverdancechamps #fevermarkham2018 so proud of this girl! #prouddad #prouddaddy #dadblogger #dancedad #dancecompetition #dance #booyabdc
Happy I got the chance to watch the little man wrestle today!
We never realized how hard this tragedy would hit us. 😭. Can’t imagine what these families are going though. #PutYourSticksOut #HumboldtStrong
Papa was always so proud of Noah in everything he did especially his hockey. He always wanted to be there for his games and practices; you could always see the pride in his eyes and they way he spoke about how he was progressing. We lost papa last summer to cancer and it made Noah’s first season as a select player difficult because he wasn’t with us to experience this incredible season and Noah’s exponential increase in skills. Noah is raising money for the pedal for hope campaign in honour of his papa by shaving his head at his school. Please consider a donation ,no amount is too small, and help him reach his goal. You can also help by sharing this post with your friends. Thanks for reading 🙂 The link is in my profile

Beautiful weather yesterday but loved getting out with my #SoleMate. Was a little cool so I wore my @enertorglobal base layer under my technical shirt and it worked perfectly!

Just tried out the new @underarmourca #UAHOVR #uahovrphantom shoes! These shoes have the same great heal cusion/bounce as the #uahovrsonic that I love. I also like that there is no tongue to pull up on these and you just slide you foot right in! The colour is super hot and bright however they will get dirty fast so be aware if you don’t like your shoe getting dirty. But, if you don’t like getting your shoes dirty then why are you running outside? Lol. I did find my heals slid a bit in the shoe but if you have great socks like I do then you shouldn’t have a problem. One other thing I noticed about this shoe is that the toe box is not very roomy so if you have insoles that you like to run in or your Fort requires extra room then you will find your toes hitting the top of the shoes. I ended up with a sore big toe on my nail after this run. I’ll have to use less of an insole or none at all when I use this shoe again. The shoe had great give and elasticity around the whole shoe so it really fit nicely around the top of my foot. I found there was good ankle support and didn’t notice any rolling when I transitioned to the uneven grass from the sidewalks and roadways. Overall another great shoe from #UnderArmor and I would highly recommend it when picking new shoes. As always when I talk to people about shoes please try on as many as possible to find the pair that best suits your foot shape, your gait and support that you require. Thank you @underarmourca and @paradigm_pr for giving me these shoes to try out and share with you guys! #CanadaWILL @enertorglobal @teamtiux
That looks much better! Thanks @lamarcahairsalon ! #haricut #barber #cleanedup
