Popcorn (and not the butter lovers kind!)
Hummus with veggies or pita
Dried fruit (unsweetened)
Trail mix- usually over 100 calories, make your own for best effect.
I try to stay away from processed things as much as possible, but guilty pleasures include triscuits, a sugar free jello snack pack, or a 100 cal snack pack.
Used to eat a lot of the nature valley/kashi granola bars and thought they were great for me (ha!!!!). Then I learned more about soy protein isolate, I try my best to avoid that junk too!
Meals are hit or miss. I am very much a grazer throughout the day. These are a combo of what I usually eat, not one specific meal. I might eat 2 breakfasts, one early and one as a am snack, etc etc..
Yogurt with: protein powder stirred in. And any combo of fruit, granola (homemade- store bought too much sugar!), cacao nibs, dried mulberries, and whatever looks good in the cupboard lol!
Breakfast sandwich- will put a meat/cheese on one piece whole grain bread and fold for a half sandwich
Redskin potato hash with veggies
Whole grain bread toasted (I only buy fresh)
Frozen waffles. If they have fruit make sure it's real and not something that's supposed to resemble fruit with a fruit flavor
Veggies! Lots! I try to mix between green beans, broccoli, and asparagus then throw whatever other colors are in season in too depending on what I'm making.
Baby greens: some combo of nuts, berries, feta cheese. I don't usually have dressing and if I do I dip from the side.
Deli meat rolls: half slice of cheese with ham/turkey rolled around. Can also wrap in lettuce/tomato etc if wanted.
Wheat or grain fresh pasta salad (lots of veggies, little cheese, little fat free Italian dressing)
Baked Roasted red potatoes
Baked Brussel sprouts
Spatzeles to mix up the starches if needed.
Burgers go on a lettuce bun (and bison/venison burgers are especially delish this way)
Frozen/boxed/not as healthy as the above but better than McDonald's:
Annie's organic pasta
Green giant (I think) has a green beans, red pepper and roasted potato frozen microwaveable that's yummy and 50-60 cal.
Alexia frozens. Sweet potatoe fries/red roasted potatoes/veggie skillets
Cascadian farms frozen veggies
As I said before my big focus is fresh/non processed when possible. I buy organic what I can. I prefer natural sugars and don't like additives. I do not buy meats packaged with nitrates. By making your own you have so much more control over what goes in. Big focus on this is sodium.
I try to buy small quanities often because I cook for myself and usually end up eating whatever I make until its gone or my 3 day leftover rule sends it to the trash. I do not eat chicken, the ultimate healthy eaters food, which makes the variety a little dull too.
