granola and granola bars. Since I'm doing the 30 Day Shred and I'm breastfeeding, I find myself hungry between meals quite often and have discovered that her granola bars hold me over very well.
Our snacks lately have consisted of:
Apples and cheese
Bananas and peanut butter
Granola and Granola Bars
Blueberry Zucchini Bread (not sure if this qualifies as "healthy")
A couple tips for snack preparation:
- After you make your snacks, go ahead and package some of them in single serving sizes so that they are more "grab 'n go" friendly. For instance, recycled baby food containers can be re-purposed to hold individual serving sizes of yogurt.
- To save time, cook snacks in bulk. Granola bars, granola, and breads/muffins can be made ahead of time and frozen.
Here's what our main meals will consist of this week:
Breakfasts: Breakfast Burritos, Smoothies, Granola, Yogurt, and Cold Creal
Lunches: leftovers, tuna-fish sandwhiches
Tuesday--Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry (recipe coming soon!)
Wednesday--Tacos with Salad
Thursday--Dinner at Home Group
Friday--Dinner at Church Retreat
Saturday--Dinner at Church Retreat (isn't it lovely how little I need to cook this week?)
I'm hope you are having a wonderful day that will set the tone for the rest of your week. :D Please share your snack ideas with me in the comments!
