For the longest time, I was creature of habit when it came to snacking. Constantly reaching for yogurt + granola or hummus + pretzel chips. Now don’t get me wrong, I will still always have these items on hand. However, I have gotten a lot more creative with my snack options lately. I love it when I can look forward to a snack and really enjoy it rather than just munch away mindlessly. I am the type of person who always has a few snacks handy. I think healthy snacking is a good way to keep energy up throughout the day and avoid extreme hunger come meal time. Here are a couple of my current go-to’s in the snack department:
1. Sweet Potato Bowls
These are absolutely delicious, nutritious and filling. They are a great breakfast option as well. All you do is roast a sweet potato at 425 degrees for 45-60 minutes (depending on the size of the sweet potato). Then simply mash it up, add a bit of ghee and then get creative with toppings. I like to top it off with almond butter, chia seeds and raisins. I have also played around with coconut flakes, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. I know it seems a bid odd, but trust me on this one. Its real good!
