20 Mid Morning & Afternoon Snacks

Notice how the Protein is accompanied by Carbohydrates and some (good) Fats too:

~1 Small Organic Apple/2 Tbs Peanut or Almond Butter

~1 Ounce Dry Roasted, Unsalted Almonds/1Small Pear

~2 Ounces Low Fat Swiss cheese or soy cheese/1/2 Apple/2 Whole Wheat Crackers-Stacked

~1/2 Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese/Toasted Raisin Ezekiel Bread/1 Tsp Honey & Cinnamon

~Protein Shake: Ex: 1 cup Organic Almond Milk, 1/2 Banana, 1/2 Cup fresh Pineapple/ 1 Scoop Vanilla      Whey Protein Powder/3 Ice cubes Blend

~8 Ounces Plain Low Fat Yogurt /1 Ounce Trail Mix

~Cottage Cheese Dip for veggies: 2 Cups Low Fat Cottage Cheese/1 Cup Fresh Basil/ 1/4 C. Parsley/1 Tbs. Red Wine Vinegar/Splash Olive Oil/Salt & Pepper
Pulse in Food Processor until Smooth. Makes 4 servings

~Protein Bars: My favorite is Cliff Bars because they are not too high in protein which can upset your stomach, they are made with organic ingredients and are high in fiber...also high in sugar :( "Think Thin" bars have no sugar, but have sugar alcohols and are higher in protein so you MUST drink water with them or it will affect you stomach negatively.

~1/2 cup Seedless Red Grapes/Low Fat Baby Bel Cheese

~2 stalks Celery with Peanut Butter & Raisins "Ants on a Log"

~2 stalks Celery with 2 Tbs. Low Fat Whipped Cream Cheese and Cranberries

~1/4 cup Roasted Walnuts/1/4 cup Dried Cherries

~1/2 cup Cottage Cheese and 1/2 cup or 1 Fruit

~2 Sliced Hard Boiled Eggs on 1 slice Toast with Sliced Tomato and Fresh Basil

~1 Low Fat String Cheese wrapped in 1 slice No Nitrate/Nitrite Ham with Fresh Pear

~2 slices Cantaloupe wrapped in Prosciutto (2 thin slices)

~1/2 Avocado with 1 tsp Vinaigrette- Sprinkle of Toasted Walnuts

~ 2 Bell Pepper Slices wrapped in No Nitrate/Nitrite Roasted Turkey
