I hope everybody had a fantastic day!
I've been on the brain about snacks. Snacks are such tricky animals. What is considered a snack and what is considered a meal?
Clean eating encourages you to eat at least 6x a day; three meals and three snacks. Not everybody follows this practice. Some eat when hungry. Some eat 3 meals and 1 snack. Finally, some eat just 6 tiny meals all ranging between 300 calories a piece.
For me; snacking is about 200 calories or less while a meal is over 200 calories. Also, this changes if I am going on a run. All my running snacks are around 250 calories!
I think if you get the snacking under control then you are SET! Man oh man is it sometimes hard to do this. This past weekend I struggled with this. I had two chocolate eggs which turned to 4...5...6...17...18..19...20...ugh. It's hard when one gets hungry!
This week I am going to work on getting better snacks. I feel that most of the snacks that I have repeat over and over again. I sure feel like there are days that I am "sick" of my own snacks!
So what do I snack on? Here are some recent snacks I have eaten; not all have photographs associated with them. However, this is what I have had in the last month or two at the most.
1] Apple with peanut butter/walnuts.
2] Banana with carrots
3] Clementines with Tea
4] Slice of toast with cashews or walnuts.
5] Apple with cottage cheese
6] slice of toast with bananas on top
7] FiberOne Bar
8] Pumpkin Protein Bar c/Tea
9] Hard boiled Eggs
10] Grapes with sweet peppers [my snack for today!]
What are some of the snacks that you eat? Please share with me what you eat for snacks! I would love to hear what you eat so I can expand my clean eating!!!
This is what I ate today!
Breakfast: 1 Egg c/1/8 of Egg Substitute Scramble c/Toast
Lunch: Dunkin Doughnut Bagel c/Shepard's Pie and Sweet Potato [I did not eat the sweet potato because I was feeling full/]

That's all for now! Have a great day!
