Snacks You Can Prep
Get your meal prep on and portion these out into plastic baggies or air-tight containers.
Celery and peanut butter
I use Skippy’s Natural Peanut Butter, but this does still have a fair amount of carbs in it. If you need a lower carb count, try an alternative natural nut butter and sweeten it with your favorite powdered sweetener.
Sliced veggies (plain or with ranch)
Slice up some peppers, celery, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower and pair it with a serving of ranch. Try to find a good sugar-free ranch if you can. Even Hidden Valley Ranch only has 1-2 net carbs per serving.
Hard-boiled eggs or deviled eggs
As much as peeling a shell sucks, this is a great go-to for some extra protein. Throw some salt on it and go.
Meat and cheese packs
Grab your favorite deli meat or summer sausage (watch the sugar in these though), and pair it with slices or cubes of your favorite cheese. Make a bunch of little baggies and keep them in your fridge, ready to go.
Yes, just plain berries are amazing, and they’re great for your metabolism. Don’t eat too much because they do have a fair amount of natural sugar, but give yourself a sweet treat now and then with some strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries.
Most trail mixes you can purchase have things that are loaded with sugar. So why not make your own? Get pistachios, sunflower seeds, dark chocolate (in moderation), peanuts, cashews, almonds, macadamia nuts, pumpkins seeds, or any combinations of these and mix it all up.
Shred up your favorite cheese (or get it pre-shredded, ‘cause ain’t nobody got time for that!) and bake it in small piles on a cookie sheet for a 5-7 minutes at 400 degrees farenheit. Throw pepperoni on them before they bake, or eat them plain. Delish!
