Day 26: Fruit Lover? Who isn’t!

Fruits are definitely a lot more fun to eat as opposed to vegetables.  They’re sweeter and have a better texture in my opinion.

Here are my top 10 ways I incorporate fruit into my diet:

  1. Whole grain toast and peanut butter with sliced bananas for a pre-workout
  2. mixed berries in my oatmeal with chia seeds
  3. Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice (no sugar added and pulp still in the glass) with my breakfast or as a snack
  4. In a fruit smoothie with mint leaves and herbalife wild berry or peach mango beverage drink mix
  5. When my carbs are low for the day I love organic dried mango slices (be careful that the ONLY ingredient is mango
  6. Whole grain crackers and peanut butter with sliced berries on top
  7. Banana and Peanut Butter for a quick and fulfilling snack
  8. As dessert with some drizzled cookie butter
  9. I love putting lemon slices in my water whenever I’m tired of plain water
  10. Dried fruit is a killer additive to homemade trail mix

Day 5: Go to Summer Snack

I try and switch up my snacks to avoid getting bored.  My favorite snacks are simple apple slices with nut butters, quinoa muffins, or decorative toasts.

I mainly use snacks from my snack like letler ebook which features over 25 different recipes for only $2.99.

Personally I snack about 2-3x a day.  It keeps me sane, keeps me from binging at the larger meals, and also keeps my blood sugar levels regular.

The Importance of Snacking

The general rule of thumb for healthy snacking is 200-300 calorie healthy snack in between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The problem is most people skip out on the snacks or go for unhealthy fatty snack foods.  I’ve coached over 100 people in the last 2 and a half years and I would say 50% of my clients initially skipped snacks, 25% opted for unhealthy snacks, and the other 25% were snacking the right way.

A few advantages to snacking include:

  1. Prevention of over eating: Do you ever find yourself come 12pm about to rip your hair off from hunger?  Which prompts you to go out to lunch eating with your eyes.  It happens to the best of us.  When we have our healthy snack, we can nip that hunger in the butt and hold off our stomach until our next major meal.  Plus that overeating usually happens with carbs, and when most people scarf down an extra serving of food for lunch due to the extreme hunger, they’re met shortly after with fatigue from over spiking their insulin.  Also, something we want to avoid.
  2. steady blood sugar levels:  The last statement about crashing after a meal has to do with the blood sugar levels.  spiking our blood glucose level excessively over and over again can overtime lead to weight gain.
  3. Provides nutrients:  Healthy snacking provides healthy nutrients.  Both macro and micronutrients.  Healthy macronutrients give us energy, and who can say no to mid morning and mid afternoon natural energy boosts?

Because snacking can get boring and confusing I designed an ebook with 25 of my favorite snack creations called snack like letler to help you! All 25 recipes of mainly vegetarian snacks for only $2.99.  Click here to download your ebook!
