I struggle to get my daily numbers for Protein. Very rarely do I actually reach the lower number in my range. So, I have been trying to keep hard boiled eggs ready in my fridge at all times to eat one or two as my evening snack if I haven't gotten close.

When eating sugary fruit, like apples or pineapple, I like to add some ground cinnamon on top. Cinnamon helps to keep your blood sugar in check.

Catching up on DVRd Dr Oz shows and today I watched one where he went into spices and their benefits. I really need to start doing that instead of eating bland things.

Got this today and thought it had some good ideas!


Smarter Workday Snacks

Never snack on carbohydrates alone. Simple carbs quickly raise your blood sugar, but you won't sustain the elevated energy levels required to get you through the day. While pretzels may seem like a healthful, low-fat choice, they won't deliver the sustained energy lift you need. Instead, an ideal power snack consists of complex carbohydrates, such as whole-grain bread or crackers, fruits, and vegetables combined with a protein, such as cheese, hummus, peanut butter, and low-fat milk.

Here are some suggestions for healthy and conveniently portable midday snacks:

# Baby carrots and hummus. Many convenience stores carry premade hummus, and you can substitute any crunchy vegetable favorites, such as cucumber slices and sweet bell pepper strips, that you can cut up the night before.
# Apple and cheese. Choose any reduced-fat cheese, such as mozzarella or Swiss, to enjoy with apple slices or grapes.
# Whole-grain crackers and peanut butter. This is a sure pick-me-up. Packed with complex carbs, fiber, and protein, this snack will give you sustained energy, and it's easy to keep in a desk drawer.
# Banana and peanut butter. This is a great idea if you are craving something a little sweeter. Peanut butter spread on a just ripe banana is truly satisfying.
# Trail mix. Try making your own combine nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and Brazil nuts with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, and your favorite whole-wheat cereal.
# Whole-wheat English muffin and low-fat cream cheese. If you're a lover of bagels and cream cheese, this is a good option.
# Low-fat vanilla yogurt topped with raisins. This is a delicious way to get calcium-rich dairy food into your day. If you think a lot of yogurt brands taste too sweet, try Greek yogurt varieties and top them with fresh fruit, such as blueberries or sliced bananas.

A couple easy ones are putting fruit on cereal. I eat 3/4 cup of blueberries everyday on my cheerios. I also ditched the single serve yogurts and started buying frozen fruit and mixing it with yogurt in a small container. You don't get a full serving of fruit in a pre-packaged yogurt, but if you mix it yourself, you can do a full serving of berries, mango, etc.
I tend to plan my meals and snacks, so I pack a fruit for a morning snack and a veggie for an afternoon snack. Snap peas are a great crunchy snack, especially with some hummus.

For a while, I made a challenge for myself that I could have a single dove dark chocolate square if I stayed in my range and got at least 5 servings of fruits/veggies a day. It was incentive to eat my greens for sure and it got me into a good habit of eating my fruits & veggies.

I have a real hard time getting in enough. I usually bring fruit to work but always forget to eat it. Know any tricks to get more in?

I have a perfect body. I just pad it for protection.

I noticed today that the feature of the day is the 30 days to more fruits & veggies. Its a great tip of the day calendar to help you get more fruits & veggies in your diet. I know it was a struggle for me when I started eating healthy, but now I easily get 7-9 a day on most days.
