My top 4 healthy snacks

I have to admit that even though I eat really healthy and try to have a balanced diet, I love to eat. I could eat anytime of the day. What can I do? I really do love food. So I allow myself to have two to three healthy snacks a day. I try to stay away from carbs after 4:00 pm. and try to keep those snacks light. So today I want to share my healthy snacks ideas. I hope you try them and let me know if you like them.

1) Avocado. It keeps me full and has tons of nutrients. Plus it is so yummy. I usually eat 1/2 or if I am really hungry I eat the whole avocado.

2) My doctor does not allow me to have bananas because it can trigger migraines, but from time to time I will have half banana with a tablespoon of almond butter.

3) Pumpkin seeds. I usually measure 1/2 cup, but I have to admit sometimes I have a little bit more. I toast them and sprinkle them with cinnamon. They taste like heaven!

4) Green juice. Before you go on and make a strange face, this juice is really tasty and is as powerful as Redbull. Seriously. I usually have it around 3:00 pm. when I feel a little tired. I throw in the juicer a green apple, a handful spinach, 1/2 cucumber, 1 kiwi, a stalk of celery and a handful of parsley. Add a little squeezed lemon juice.

  1. If I don’t want to add any calories to my day and I am hungry between meals, I sometimes make rosehip tea. I let it steep at least 30 minutes and it has a wonderful, slightly sour flavor as if you already squeezed a lemon in it. I use dried organic rosehips – not teabags. And I always have a jar of organic walnuts ready to snack on too 🙂
