Healthy Snack Ideas Plus 5 Ways to Stay on Track

by Alli

Are you a snacker like me? If so, you’re probably always on the lookout for healthy snack ideas. Sometimes I get too busy and I forget to take breaks during my work day. Once dinner arrives, I’m ravenous. That’s not good. So, I put the ole “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail,” into practice and found healthy snack ideas that actually taste good.

Healthy Snack Ideas

Recently, I invested in a new treadmill. It’s just too hot right now to walk outside and soon I’ll be using the excuse that it’s too cold. There’s something about exercising on a regular basis that causes me to clean up my eating habits as well. With my treadmill and healthy snack ideas, there are no more excuses.

My son will be getting married in November and every single time I think about the mother-groom dance (we’ve been practicing), posing for a gazillion photos  and simply walking down the aisle in front of all those guests, those thoughts help me remember to exercise and eat healthy snacks.

Now that I plan out my day in advance, I find it much easier to stay on track.

5 Ways to Stay on a Healthy Living Track

1.  Plan your daily menu in advance

I have found that if I don’t plan my menu in advance, including snacks, I’ll pick the wrong foods and then feel bad about it.

2.  Get enough sleep

When you don’t sleep well, you’ll sometimes compensate by eating more. Get those zzz’s.

3.  Drink plenty of water

Stay hydrated!

4.  Choose exercises you enjoy

If you hate it, you won’t stick with it. I enjoy walking, so that’s what I usually do. I mix it up with a little weight lifting and I’m good to go.

5. Eat healthy snacks

A healthy mid-afternoon snack helps keep me on track and keeps me from overeating at dinner.

My grocery shopping trip to Publix always includes stopping near the bakery department to grab my favorite Weight Watchers Red Velvet Créme Cakes and Salted Caramel Brownie Bliss. I love that I can swap out unhealthy options with Weight Watchers products without sacrificing taste or convenience. 

Weight Watchers Snacks

Occasionally, my daughter will drop by to enjoy an afternoon snack with me. We usually go out on the porch to eat our snacks and talk about her brother’s upcoming wedding.

Those Weight Watchers brownies are so tasty. For me it’s hard to eat just one..therein lies the problem.

I am always looking for healthier snacks too and these sound awesome. When it gets busy, junk is easier to reach for in place of the good stuff. We don’t have Publix here but my husband and I have been talking about how we need to include healthier options in our diets.

Great ideas and those snack bars look yummy. I didn’t realise there was a mother son dance at a wedding x

Usually, here in the USA, The father-bride dance is followed by the groom-mom dance. The mother of the bride gets completely left out. 🙂 And she usually does most of the planning, etc, along with her daughter, of course.
