I love Nonni's cranberry thinaddictives. I am afraid they are going to stop making them. I am searching for another healthy substitute. Haven't found one so far. That is my one sugar exception. However they aren't loaded with sugar. Sometimes if I am really hungry at home I will just make a sweet kale salad with or without fruit and balsamic and a bit of olive oil. I also eat hummus on occasion with a variety of things. I love crunchmaster multigrain crackers.
This is good information thank you!

SUBJECT: Healthy Habits Challenge – Day 4 – snack time!

WELCOME to Day 4 of the Healthy Habits Challenge.

Today is one of my favorite topics (maybe this is one of your faves too) – SNACKS!

It happens to all of us from time to time. You are out and about when the day seems to get away from you and you realize that you are starving. You need to get something to eat right now, and there are no healthy options in sight. So, you try to pick the healthiest option from a list of bad choices.

While it may not make a long-term difference in your health if the above scenario happens every once in a while, but for many people, it happens on a daily basis. This scenario can easily be prevented with a little planning.

When you know you are going to be away from home for more than 2 hours, have healthy snacks prepared so you can eat on the go.

Find snacks that appeal to you and are easily transported. You can keep snacks in an insulated lunch box with a freezer pack, if needed. This way you are never stuck without a healthy option when hunger strikes.

Other options include:

• Good quality beef jerky
• Kind Bars (the ones with protein are filling, and have less sugar)
• Make your own trail mix (example: almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts)
• Mixed berries or other favorite fruit
• Carrot sticks and hummus,
• Apple slices and peanut butter
• Unsweetened yogurt – add fresh berries
• Almonds and raisins
• Make your own healthy ‘treats’ ahead of time. Check out this site (
an-banana-bread/) for a healthy banana bread recipe.

You don’t have to be a slave to fast food or the vending machine when you are on the go. With a little forethought, you can always have healthy snacks with you, helping you avoid the sluggish feeling that comes from eating empty calories.

Take control of your diet, and make progress toward living the healthy lifestyle you have been envisioning by preparing healthy snacks to take with you on the go. You will be rewarded with more energy and better results in your weight loss efforts. It only takes a small time investment to begin reaping the rewards!

What are your favorite healthy go-to snacks that you can bring on the go?

Let us know in the thread below!

Remember, snack responsibly!

All the best,
