If you’ve been around me long enough to know my eating habits, it’d be nothing unusual to see me hovering over a big bowl of fruit and yogurt as my choice for mid-afternoon snacking.
You’d notice me; but I wouldn’t notice you. It’s crazy but I feel as if I slip into some kind of coma state over this little treat 😉
Healthy snacking can be so hard for some people – frequently being tempted to reach for those bag of chips for a quick fix, or ‘being healthy’ by getting ahold of almonds and downing the whole bag. A snack is simply just that – a snack. Something little to help tide you over and keep your metabolism working on a good regimen.
Some people who may be just starting their weight loss journey or looking to be more healthy in their food choices/habits look at snacks as a no-no. But people! You can’t deprive yourself! Snacking in-between meals is great – you just have to know what to reach for and how much to give yourself.
This choice for a snack is so simple, but yet so flavorful and satisfying. A great healthy alternative to have in between meals and far better than reaching for chips or those over processed granola bars from the store.
Greek Yogurt & Fruit Bowl
- 1/2 banana, diced
- 1 apple, diced
- handful of strawberries, diced
- a few slices of peaches, diced
- a couple spoonfuls of plain greek yogurt (or any yogurt of choice)
- 1 tbsp. coconut butter
- dash of cinnamon
- drizzle of local honey
I usually chop up my fruit and place it in a bowl first, then add everything else ontop and swirl it all together. I always use fruit that I have on hand, and FYI – peanut butter should always be an option for toppings as well 🙂
