Clean Eating Snack Options

Hello everyone! I hope you enjoyed my last post on meal preparation and planning and were able to get some good ideas on what a typical day of clean eating looks like. Today I wanted to share with you some clean eating snack ideas because for me this is what I struggle with the most. I’m really good when it comes to breakfast, lunch, and dinner but then when it’s time to choose a “healthy” snack in all honesty I would way rather sit on the couch with a big bag of Doritos watching Real Housewives but I know that’s not going to get me the results that I want, so 90% of the time I don’t give in to that temptation. It’s also really hard for me because I have two little ones in the house and I swear that bag of Goldfish is always calling my name, I know it’s in there and I just want to eat it so bag! I know my children should basically be eating exactly what I’m eating but you try telling your picky 7 year old that for school lunch she’s going to have tuna with avocado, carrots, and almonds. She’d starve!! Ok now that was a little dramatic but you get the point, my kids will eat certain healthy snacks like apples and yogurt but for the most part they like the P&J’s with chips and a cookie, we are slowly working on introducing this lifestyle to theirs and I mean very slowly. So in case your stuck in a rut and need some new inspiration on what to eat here are some great ideas. Also remember it’s a good idea to mix things up a bit, if your constantly eating the same thing all the time your going to get sick of it and that’s when your going to end up giving up and go back to eating that bag of chips.
