CM eats snaaaaaaaacks


CourtnieMarie

Recommended Posts

are snacks not the most important food of the day?

 

here are some goals!

 

Food.

consume 25g fiber on weekend days. plan out what will be available to make this happen each Thursday

 

eat out or take out less than 5x over challenge.

 

eat SNACKS from home before anything at work (unless they’re providing lunch). SNACK ideas are welcome. currently it's a banana, clementines, and strawberries.

 

Exercise.

5 workouts per week. mix of lifting and cardio sessions

 

pull up bar play 6 min per week. must do on non-work days.

 

yoga on the weekends (65 mins/week total). read/watch a new mobility article/video each week.

I'm fond of cashews and dried fruit. Kinda hefty calorie-wise but will help toward your fiber goal.

ah yess! we used to have cashews too. i didn't even realize they were fiberful. i do have a problem with them sometimes when i eat the entire tub though...

Not a ton of fiber in the cashews, more in the Craisins (or whatever). And yeah, not eating a whole pound is definitely the challenging part.

FOOOOOOD! I like how everyone else has zeroed in on the snacks goal too :P.

 

I'd recommend making sure you get some protein with your snacks - that will probably tide you over better than simple carbs alone :). Ideas:

  • Cheese
  • Small yogurt pots
  • Nut butters with some fruit, vegetables (I like carrots + nut butters), crackers, or rice cakes. If portion control is an issue (I know it is for me!), portion it out into little tubs or buy single serving packs.
  • Tin of tuna or mackerel
  • Smoothie
  • Protein shake + some carbs or veg
  • Gelatin gummies or bars (e.g., pumpkin protein bars, lemon and raspberry gummies)
  • Meatballs - batch cook a bunch with turkey or beef mince, plus some added veg (bonus: they freeze well too!).
  • Egg muffins (whisk eggs, mix in chopped veg, pour into muffin tins, and bake)
  • Mini salad or overnight oats in a mason jar

Recently I've been making bags of carrot sticks so I have those handy to eat alongside some other, less bulky things (e.g., smoothies) - you can also do the same with other veg, like bell peppers, and mix and match with a protein source.

SNACKKKKS!!!!!!!

 

I like snacks! I like... hummus and carrots, apple and peanut butter, summer rolls, crudete with greek yogurt dip, HB eggs, turkey meatballs, homemade baked chicken nuggets... snacks are good ^_^ 

 

I like the term pull up bar play! That makes something kinda painful sound a lot more fun... also dig the improvisational nature of it.

hard boiled egg

sargento nut/fruit snacks

individual snack bags of prunes

carrots

Lorna Doone 100 calorie packs of cookies (excellent with jello pudding snacks)

prunes!! totally forgot about prunes. i could definitely get in on those.

Black Olives

Wheat Thins (homemade)

Saltines

 

I know, not a lot, but I don't snack a lot anymore.  

that probably means you're eating plenty at mealtime! i just find i love to snack and knowing i have another food source every couple hours while at work help A LOT haha! also <3 olives. do those have fiber in them?

snack goal is the besssst goal ;)  i probably should've mentioned that i actually get plenty of protein these days at regular mealtime. though i do love yogurt and used to portion out the bulk tubs into my smaller containers. probiotics are probably just as helpful as fiber counts right??

exactly! can't do a pull up? just play on the bar til you can. it's bound to work right? the goal stemmed from me never using my pull up bar at home. i have it! i should use it. now i'm trying to get playtime to happen more on the weekends when i'm typically more busy and less likely to gym

this gif needed to be quoted

 

i eat a lot of yogurt topped with various fiber-rich kashi cereals

fiber cereals and granola! totally forgot about those.

 

awesome suggestions nerds! you're the best. i'll try adding one or two of these to the list this weekend and see if i can fit it into the regular line up.

It's working for me!! What pully uppy type activities do you have in mind?

 

I'm not a great snacker or anything, but I've been eating a lot of (probably too many) almonds.

 

Does this thread have a theme song yet? Cuz this is my suggestion

I mean...they already serve drinks at hair cut places, that'd really be the next step for dentists too.

 

Also, snaaacks. Currently on a carrot sticks and protein shake kick, but I've also been a fan of celery sticks and peanut butter in the past.
