When it comes to snacking, having the same old protein bar can get pretty boring.

Here are a few fun ideas to switch up your snack options!

When choosing a snack it’s important to ensure your snack includes a protein. Having a protein at snack increases satiety (the feeling of fullness) and can help curb cravings for sugar and processed foods.

1. Apple with sugar-free nut peanut butter or almond butter 

Smear 2 tablespoons of sugar-free nut butter on sliced apple pieces. 

      2. Vegetables (carrot sticks or peppers) with hummus 

Dip 1 cup of carrot sticks or diced peppers into 2 tbsp of hummus. 

      3. Cottage cheese with raspberries

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of raspberries into 1 cup of cottage cheese.

     4. Edamame (unsalted) 

One cup of edamame is a great source of protein and fibre.

      5. Greek yogurt with cinnamon and sliced apples 

Slice up an apple and mix in with 1 cup of greek yogurt. Sprinkle cinnamon on top!

It’s time to enjoy your snack time buddies. Shine Bright!
