If you are hungry most of the time or on the run most of the day, try keeping some fresh nuts on hand to provide you some energy and satisfy your hunger.
Staying active is a good thing, but you might not have the time to stop what you’re doing to fix a healthy meal when you’re hungry.
You definitely don’t want to grab an unhealthy snack that will make you crash even harder in less than an hour.
Nutty snacks work really well for people on the go with busy schedules – they are great snacks for kids, too.
Try these two quick and healthy nut snack solutions:
Almond Butter And Sliced Bananas
- Spread 1/3-cup nut butter on whole grain bread;
- Add banana slices or 100% organic fruit jam.
Any nut butters can be used such as cashew, hazelnut, or all-natural peanut butter.
Be sure there are no added ingredients in the nut butter or fruit jam, but make a P&J that’s healthy for you, anytime during the day.
When you or your kids are hungry and getting a little unruly due to blood sugar drops, eat a healthy protein snack that’ll calm you down!
Honey Nut Butter Dressing
- 2 oz. Tahini or all-natural nut butter;
- Juice from 1/2 lemon;
- 1 tsp. honey.
Mix all ingredients. Add water to thin the mix into a creamy, pourable consistency.
Blend ingredients together and pour over salad or veggies and even chicken. What a great way to turn picky eaters onto healthy greens!
