One of the things i've been continuing from the Whole Living Action Plan, is having healthy snacks on hand at work. It stops those 3pm visits to the vending machine (who are we kidding with those "baked chips"?) and helps to make much better decisions when it comes to dinner plans. Seems like an obvious thing to do, but I just wasn't planning well enough ahead of time to make sure I always have some good, non-processed food with me.
Lately I've been bringing a lot of fruit... pears, grapefruit, oranges, apples, bananas, and other things like raisins, oatmeal, celery with organic peanut butter, and a nut mix. The nut mix is really easy and there's so many ways to mix it up. Just gather a bunch of your favourite nuts and toast them in the oven for about 10-15 mins at 350˚ (just keep an eye on them). I usually add some raisins after, and next time I think i'll add a little 70% dark chocolate. Much better mix than the salty, store-bought kinds!
What are your favourite healthy snacks?
