I don’t sit still. I’m always on the go. That’s one of the reasons eating healthy has always been a challenge for me. Over the last month I have been participating in the Shaklee180 Turnaround program as a Shaklee180 Blogger. This program has certainly made my busy, hectic life a bit easier – at least for when it comes to eating well at snack time.
Around 10:00 AM I get a little hungry – or sometimes I’m not even hungry I’m just in the “mood” to eat something. I know you can all relate. Since starting Shaklee180 one of two things happens, A. 10 AM passes and I don’t even think of eating because I’m still so full from my breakfast smoothie, or B. I have a filling snack, like an egg white omelet with diced veggies, salsa and a tbsp of shredded cheese. My toddler loves this snack too, so we enjoy it together.
Between 2-4 each afternoon I have historically gotten a little hungry. I am in my car a lot during those hours for school pickup, driving to soccer and more. These last months, before starting Shaklee180, I found myself nibbling on the snack I would bring the kindergartener to have after school – like sneaking one of her cookies. Here’s how I have satisfied my afternoon munchies in the carpool line:
Late Night Munchies
Still haven’t concurred this one. This is the BIGGEST challenge for me. There is something so satisfying about sitting on the couch, watching a show and nibbling on something. I’ve tried to be smart with what I’m nibbling on. Some of my better choices have been a serving of hummus for a carrots or 100-calorie sandwich thin. I know I need to stop eating a few hours before going to bed, and I have not done a good job with that. That’s my main focus for Month 2! Can’t wait to share what works and what doesn’t!
