Quick quiet snacks

23Feb10

How do I make good snack choices when the pantry is filled with potato chips, Fritos, Doritos etc!!! Stock your pantry with the following: Making good snack choices can be  easy!

QUIET DIET PANTRY

Deli sliced chicken or turkey

part skim mozzarella string cheese sticks

grated part skim mozzarella cheese

corn tortillas

whole wheat tortillas

Ezekiel sprouted grain tortillas

almond butter

Brown Rice Cakes

raw almonds,  raw sunflower seeds, etc

salsa

pizza sauce

fresh fruit and vegetables

non fat yogurt or greek yogurt

GRAB AND GO QUICK SNACKS

1.Turkey roll ups.  Roll up deli turkey or chicken with either a small slice of mozzarella.  Add mustard or horseradish sauce for a little flavor.  You will never miss the sandwich or the time it takes to make a sandwich.

2. Rice Cakes with tsp pizza sauce or mustard.  Add a little mozzarella cheese.  Microwave for 10 seconds.  Satisfies  salt and crunch.

3. Corn tortillas.  Add Tb cheese.  microwave for 5 -10 seconds.  Add salsa if you wish.  Satisfies the desire for chips and salsa.  Delicious

4.  Tb of Almond butter on a rice cake, or alone.  For me it satisfies the afternoon sweet tooth

5.  Whole Wheat tortillas.  Choose sandwich selections and roll.

6.  Ezekiel sprouted whole grain tortillas.  See previous post for pizza recipe.

7.  Before preparing dinner put a  bowl of yogurt in the freezer.  After dinner when the sweet tooth is calling, treat yourself to chilled yogurt.  Add fresh berries.  Yum!

Enjoy choosing quick quiet snacks!

    Ok, I love the frozen yogurt idea! Wow!
    I have a sweet tooth every night and afternoon.
    Sometime a hot cup of tea helps me through it!
