As usual, I have been snacking as much as ever. I think I just have a hard time eating enough at breakfast and lunch to hold me over to the next meal. So I always plan to have a snack on hand between those meals, and sometimes after dinner too! I’ve gotten really tired of Lara Bars (I have been eating one a day for a few years now…) so I have been looking into other snacks that are easy to make and can be taken with me on the go.
For this week’s Friday Five, I thought I would share 5 snacks I have recently discovered that would be great for any time of day!
These are a perfect morning snack, and I have made them twice in the past month. They are so good that I would even eat them as a dessert!
I haven’t tried these yet, but I love the short ingredient list. They looks great for a quick on-the-go snack, and you really can’t go wrong with peanut butter!
I have made these muffins a few times, and while I usually eat them in the morning I think they would be great for later in the day too.
I saw this smoothie recipe a few weeks ago and keep meaning to try it! I know that beets are really good for you but I don’t like the taste of eating them cooked. I have used them in smoothies before and don’t really taste them, so I definitely need to give this recipe a try!
I wanted to find either a trail mix or granola recipe, and then I discovered this recipe which combines them both!
Now that I have found all these delicious snack recipes, I am inspired to try something new and do some extra meal prep this weekend!
