Nutritious Snacks for your Metabolism

Take the guesswork out of your grocery list and use the snacks below to keep you on track with your healthy routine.


Apples with Cinnamon and Peanut butter dip: Sprinkle cinnamon in 2 Tbsp peanut butter and use as a dip for your sliced apple.

Small smoothie: Blend 1/2 banana, blueberries, flaxseed, almond milk, and ice. (add 1/2 scoop of whey protein for thickness or extra protein if desired.)

Carb free protein drink and 10 almonds: Isopure is my favorite carbohydrate free protein that comes in a variety of different flavors. Enjoy with almonds to include healthy fat and carbohydrates.


Artichoke and Greek Yogurt Dip with Vegetables: Mix Greek yogurt, chopped hard boiled egg, chopped artichokes, garlic  and pepper. Eat with your favorite vegetables instead of chips.

4-6 oz Green Veggie juice with 1/4 cup walnuts: Look for pre-made versions at your grocery store. One that specifically does not have added sugar.

Hard boiled eggs and carrot sticks:  Boil your eggs early in the week and you can quickly grab and go at any time.

Late night

5 oz glass red wine and small handful cashews: Red wine is great for your heart and even belly in monitored amounts. Keep it at one glass to reap the benefits.

Low fat greek yogurt, sunflower seeds and cinnamon: Put in the freezer for a few minutes before you eat it to make it feel more like ice cream.

Low fat cottage cheese, chopped tomatoes and lemon pepper: Mix them all together and enjoy.
