We all have that point in the day when we reach a lull and need a pick me up. Instead of reaching for chips and cookies you are on the amazing eating plan call Trim Health Mama and need a snack fast!
There are many great ideas for snacks but if you are still trying to lose weight the best idea is to keep it the full pull kind. You need to make it to dinner or maybe just lunch, these will get you there!
My problem with the full pull snacks is some are hardly filling. Keep in mind I have a higher metabolism, I workout, I am a mother to two little boys and we are constantly active outdoors during the summer. I need quick snacks that fill me up and get me on the move again!
My first and favorite is:
Greek Pudding – page 251 in the original THM book. I add a cup of sweetened strawberries sometimes a few blueberries and yummo!
Second is my very own recipe:
Chocolate Protein Smoothie
Put the following ingredients into a blender:
1 cup Cashew Milk
2 Tbs. Natural Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
4 packets Truvia
1 squirt Skinny Girl Liquid Stevia
1 tsp. Caramel or Vanilla Extract
1 scoop THM Pristine Whey Protein Powder
6 cubes of ice or more depending on how thick you like your smoothies.
Deli meat roll ups on page 299 in the original THM book. If you like meat sandwiches you will love these!
Low Carb tortillas with laughing cow cheese wedge, lettuces and some chicken or turkey deli meat.
And my fourth choice:
Two wasa light rye crackers with one laughing cow cheese wedge. The least filling but on days that I haven’t been very physically active, its all I need.
I usually save my GGMS (Good Girl Moonshine – non alcoholic) for the afternoon as well. This plus a full pull snack has me feeling full and gives me enough energy to get through the afternoon 🙂
Hope this helps!
