Power Snack Ideas for the Whole Family and Recipe for Banana Sushi!

November 22, 2017


Happy Tuesday!   I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Son Number 4 had  double-header baseball games in Foxborough Mass and I would be lying if I did not mention how disappointed I was to not bump into The GRONK (Rob Gronkowski) at Dunkin Donuts!   Oh well, we have another set of games down there this coming weekend and maybe he will be around.  A girl can dream right!!


Last week I blogged about the importance of powering up your snack with the correct balance of protein, carbs and fat and today I would like to share some snacks that fit the formula.


Carbohydrate + Protein/Healthy Fat = POWER SNACK




Humus or guacamole and cut up veggies or whole-wheat crackers


Greek Yogurt with berries and slivered almonds


Celery sticks with peanut/almond butter


Celery sticks with laughing cow cheese


Cheese stick and fruit


All natural beef jerky (check ingredient label)


Cottage cheese and fruit or cut up veggies


Rise Bars, Kind Bars, Luna Protein Bars, Detour Smart Bars (No artificial ingredients, ( aim for a bar with more than 6 grams protein and more protein than sugar)


Deli Wraps: Sliced turkey wrapped around a cheese stick, cucumber spear or dill pickle


Lettuce wraps: tuna/chicken/ humus and veggies (romaine works great)


Roasted Chick Peas


Frozen grapes and cottage cheese


Cottage Cheese filled Avocado Half (super yummy)


Apple/banana and peanut butter (squeeze packets are portable)


Hard-boiled egg and fruit


Triscuits and black bean dip


100 calorie almond packet and fruit


Banana Sushi Recipe


whole-wheat tortilla


1 tablespoon of all natural peanut/almond/sunflower butter


1 banana


Honey, cinnamon (optional)


Spread a thin layer of nut butter across entire tortilla. Sprinkle cinnamon and spread tiny amount of honey over nut butter. Place whole banana in middle of tortilla. Tightly roll up tortilla around banana. Leave seam-side down on plate


Chill and slice into 8 pieces


Give some of these a try and watch your energy go thru the roof.




We start one on one dog training this Friday.  Pray for us!  Perhaps I should say – pray for the trainer…



Have a great day!  Noreen
