Guys! I just had a great lunch and was really craving something sweet! In the past I would just have a cookie or a potato chip snack in my office, but now that I am on the Whole30 I need to be prepped with better choices to make sure I remain compliant and stick to the plan of doing my best.
I wanted to share 10 different healthy choices that I have used as a snack and you can too. If you are looking to do a sugar free diet too, this should help guide you on your way!
1. Organic Blueberries
I love blueberries especially when they are super sweet! Typically if I am not in a rush I will try one blueberry out of the plastic canister first to make sure it is OK. If it is nice and sweet I will take them. Some people like the bitterness of them so that is fine too. Whatever floats your boat! They are good to have on hand as you go about your day!
2. Coffee with Coconut Milk, Cinnamon and Nutmeg
OMG, in the middle of the day I am always super tired! I love to freshen up with a nice cup of coffee. This gives me a boost as I get into the end of the day as I finish up the rest of my work. I also add in the full fat coconut milk, as it is a great substitute for a sugary creamer as the sugar and dairy really help you pack on the pounds! To give this a little kick, I add organic cinnamon and nutmeg to it as well. I also heard the Nut Pods brand and the Bulletproof coffee brands are really awesome too!
3. Organic Apple Sauce
As long as there are organic apples without any added sugar you should be good! Just check the packaging and nutrition label before you buy as you could end up with something not compliant which would stink. You can make a homemade version yourself too if you have time on your hands which is awesome but time consuming. I find it more convenient to grab this right off the shelf and eat it when I can!
4. RXBar without added sugar
These bars are excellent and many of my friends are really into them as a snack or as a breakfast as a whole. There are wholesome ingredients that are mostly Whole30 friendly but make sure you check the labels before you leap. They pride themselves on no B.S., meaning no BAD STUFF! 🙂 Super cheeky and trendy.
5. Pistachio Nuts with Sea Salt
I love these nuts! These always remind me of Christmas time as my mom used to get all of us these fancy Zenobia pistachio nuts that we would always eat way too many of and get a stomach ache! LOL! Just be sure they are organic and made with sea salt!
Goodness gracious great balls of grapes! I carry a sack of these at a time as they are filling when you eat a lot and are a good substitute for a sugar snack. You can use green or red grapes as long as they are organic you are all set.
Again check to be sure they are organic, these are fine to eat once in a while as you stay compliant on the Whole30 diet.
I used to steal these from my neighbors bushes on Long Island as a kid and it was amazing! I think they must have seen us there but never gave us a hard time. It was a free snack! LOL!
9. Flavored Seltzer, La Croix, Canada Dry, etc.
As long as there is no added sugar here, you should be just fine. I like to cut a lemon and squeeze it in there too to make it extra delicious!
10. Sliced Watermelon & Raspberries
Surprisingly this is a delicious mix, add a squeeze of lemon too and you’ll be in heaven!
