The diversity Blair brings to her clients and boot camp classes is what sets her apart from the other exercising options I have tried.

Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks: An important part of a Balanced Eating Plan!

Snacking throughout the day is important and there’s nothing wrong with snacking if you make healthy choices; that means nutritious foods that don’t contain too much fat, sugar or sodium.  Nutritious snacks can keep you energized and provide necessary nutrients for your body.  Snacking can help you either lose or gain weight, depending on your personal health goals.  Keep in mind that the food you keep in your cupboard and fridge are what you will snack on.  So plan ahead and keep healthy snacks around.

Be sure to have snacks that have as many of these components as possible:

  • Protein
  • Good Fats (unsaturated)
  • Carbohydrates

Here are some snack suggestions that you can keep handy around your house or workspace:

  • Cottage cheese, almonds and fresh fruit (berries, bananas,…).
  • Fresh fruit like bananas, apples, oranges and individual fruit cups always taste great and are easy to pack for work.
  • Whole grain bagels or bread with peanut butter are healthy and very filling.
  • Sliced vegetables like peppers, carrots and cucumbers are an excellent snack choice. Try to have pre-sliced vegetables available in the fridge for those times that you aren’t in the mood to prepare something.
  • Apples and peanut butter
  • Apples and Cheese
  • Low fat yogurt with fresh fruit is a real treat, but also very nutritious.
  • A bowl of whole grain dry cereal with milk is a great snack choice.
  • Oatmeal with Almonds, Milk and fresh fruit.
  • Small piece of fish (salmon, tuna) over salad (use a vinaigrette- not a creamy dressing)
