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

 

QUICK AND EASY SNACKS TO STAY ON TRACK

 

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

.

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