Sugar-Free Snacks!

When my nephew was young, his favorite word was snack. It was the cutest thing,  he couldn’t say much, but he was determined to get the goodies. As adults, I think we often feel the same way.


I try my best to eat three meals a day and avoid snacking, in order to give my digestive tract time to do its job. Sometimes though, Mama just needs a snack. 


We are currently in a month-long challenge to avoid sugar and alcohol. My standard dates, pretzels, and peanut butter on celery sticks are off-limits. So what am I choosing instead?


Here are a few of my easy grabs:


Popcorn drizzled with coconut oil and sea salt

Grain-free chips from Siete with guacamole (recipe below)

Celery dipped in natural almond butter

Hummus and carrots

Cucumber slices with sea salt sprinkled on top

Chopped cauliflower and broccoli florets

Roasted almonds

4 to 5 Brazil nuts

Kale chips

Leftovers from last night’s dinner

Meat sticks (Chomps are my fave)



For maximum nutrient intake, I try to include protein, fiber, and healthy fat in every meal (including snacks). For instance, if I grab some pre-cut cauliflower, I will drizzle some olive oil on top and eat a meat stick. Meat = protein.  Cauliflower = fiber.  Olive oil = healthy fat. This ensures that I stay satiated longer. It also helps to balance my moods.




What are some of your favorite snacks? I would love to learn more protein, fiber, healthy fat combo snacks. Let me know in the comments.


All my love,
