Spring clean your snacks
Spring clean your snacks by pairing produce and protein or what I call a snack with staying power. I shared my apple sandwiches! I started with Envy Apples – which are the ultimate apple experience – perfectly sweet with satisfying crunch. The slices naturally remain fresh and white longer, so they are great for salads, charcuterie boards, or snacking. You can find them at Whole Foods, Walmart, Trader Joe’s. Then add your protein fillings.
You can also make snack boxes pairing produce and protein like these zero sugar chicken sticks. If you love jerky- you need to try these by Ovation foods made with lightly seasoned chicken breast and one whole egg so they pack 20 grams of protein per stick. Eggs are incredibly nutrient dense they provide small amounts of almost every single vitamin and mineral and are the single best dietary source of choline, an essential brain nutrient that recent studies suggest most americans may be low in. You can find them at InOvationfoods.com and on Amazon.
Spring clean your meals
Spring clean your meals by replacing high sugar and fat dressing and condiments with better for you options like hummus and salsa. You can use hummus as a salad dressing – I use the Fresh Cravings hummus from Walmart which is super creamy, made short list of high-quality whole food ingredients including Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil, chickpeas and savory tahini and comes in craveable flavors like roasted garlic, roasted red pepper, honey jalapeño and everything bagel. You can also use Fresh Cravings organic salsa as a lightened-up pasta sauce – it’s made with a short list of fresh organic ingredients – you can chilled in the produce section at Publix.
Spring clean your dessert
These are two ingredient brownies made with 1 cup of sweet potato puree and 2 bars of endangered species dark chocolate– I used the oatmilk sea salt and almonds but you can also use the almonds sea salt or caramel sea salt. I like them because they are made with just a handful of high-quality ingredients – plus 10% of Annual Net Profits go back to Wildlife Conservation. You can find them at Harris Teeter, Publix, Target and Chocolatebar.com.
