We’ll be posting a new challenge every day leading up to summer! Follow along here on the blog, or using this calendar.
It’s day three of our summer challenge, and hopefully you’ve tried a few new workouts by now. But today we’re shaking things up with a new type of challenge, one that goes beyond being active: snack healthy.
We’ve written before about how to master your fridge, which is a great start along the healthy-eating path. And if you’ve ever tried tracking your food or searched for healthy recipes on your web browser of choice, there’s a lot out there to help you out. But even the best-laid meal plans can succumb to unhealthy snacking habits. So today, and hopefully moving forward until summer begins, the goal is to check the nutritional info whenever you reach for a snack and try to make the healthiest choice you can.
To help you get started, here’s just a few of our favorite snacks that help give you energy and fill you up – all for under 100 calories!
- 33 Grapes
- 10 baby carrots and 2 tbsp hummus
- 1 banana
- ½ cup shelled edemame
- 2 egg whites on whole wheat toast
- 1 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
- shrimp cocktail (8 shrimp, 2 tbsp cocktail sauce)
- ½ cup baked kale
- 1 stalk celery with 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 cup spinach w/ ½ cup strawberries and 1 tbsp balsamic dressing
