Healthy Snacking Basics
HEALTHY SNACKING BASICS
I'm all about balance. Looking and feeling amazing shouldn't mean giving up all your favourite snacks/meals, or social activities. The best way to stay fit and happy for life is to strike the right balance of delicious and nutritious. Eat whole, unprocessedand colourful 80% of the time, and the other 20% of the time enjoy what you love - and no feeling guiltyfor doing so!
These are my latest favourites that I always have stocked up in my kitchen for when I feel like indulging or adding an extra level of yummy to a meal without compromising my diet/fitness progress.

I love this stuff on bread, bagels, waffles...and usually just by itself on a spoon.
I F$@#'n love this stuff all over my waffles, pancakes, ice cream, or even just fruit (bananas!).
I'm a pancake and waffle addict! Check out the Active K sweet or savoury waffle guide and start making healthy and macro friendly waffles for any meal of the day.
The uses for coconut oil and endless. It's antibacterial and has so many amazing qualities. My favourite is doing a face mask with it after washing. I then place a hot damp towel on my face for a few minutes, and use it to wipe off any excess oil. Doing this before sleep always guarantees a super soft and clean face in the morning.
I'm a huge fan of doing a seriously deep exfoliation and hydration ritual once a week. After exfoliating with a spin brush and a gentle wash, I go in with this peel to really get off all the little bits of dead skin and dirt. This really prepared my skin for any mask and serum that I use afterwards.
I absolutely love how light yet deeply conditioning this mask is. I love to slap on a nice layer after exfoliating and keeping it on over night as a moisturizer.
Organic Cacao Nibs
When I crave chocolate, these little dudes go well in pancakes, waffles, on top of protein ice cream... anywhere
Jumbo Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkin seeds are an amazing food! They're rich in manganese, magnesium, copper, protein, zinc, and much more. Better yet, they're absolutely delicious on top of cereal, yogurt, or some sugar-free or protein ice cream. YUM
Walden Farms Calorie Free Pancake Syrup
I swear this stuff tastes like the real thing! I'm not even going to ask how there's no calories! It's amazing on pancakes, waffles, egg whites, oatmeal, cauliflower eggs, etc. Of course don't go too crazy with it, and try to leave it as a treat once a week.
Grain Free Protein Bread
Who doesn't love bread?! Bread is definitely one of my favourite breakfast and lunch foods, but it's usually very high in carbohydrates, so this is a great option. I usually will have half of one slice toasted with some avocado & egg on top. DROOL
Quest Nutrition Protein Chips
The first time I tried these protein chips, I absolutely could not believe what I was eating! They taste so good (my favourite is sour cream), and have only 4 gram or carbs, 130 calories, and yet they have 22 grams of protein! They are so insanely delicious, and I'm not even normally a chip person.
Quest Nutrition Cravings Cups
Protein Reese Peanut butter cups. That is all I'm going to say. These literally taste just like peanut butter cups, only you won't hate yourself after eating them.
