saturday snack / 004

March 1, 2014

I have found that one of the hardest parts of trying to make healthier choices, when it comes to what you eat, is the in between meals stage: snacks. To make it easier for you, each week I will bring you a new healthy option for snacking.

 This week is a quick snack that can be eaten on the go: celery + PB. Have you ever tried to premake these and put them in a plastic snack bag for lunch? If you haven't, spoiler alert it gets pretty messy. I came across these single serve Justins Honey Peanut Butter packet and knew instantly what I was going to use them for. 

Wash and cut up 3 stalks of celery, throw in a snack bag, grab your PB packet and you have a yummy snack for later! 

 • Serving Size: 1 Honey Peanut Butter packet + 3 celery stalks  • 200 Calories • 16g of fat • 3g saturated fat • 0g cholesterol • 161mg sodium • 312mg potassium • 11g carbs • 4g fiber • 5g sugar • 8g protein •

This snack does have a considerable amount of fat, but it's from the peanuts + palm oil used to make the peanut butter. It's a heck of a lot better for you than a serving of ice cream or some potato chips. Research has shown that although nuts natural contain fat, they have no effect on a weight loss regimen- in fact they may be slightly beneficial. Due to the fact that nuts don't get fully digested. So eat up and enjoy your tasty peanut butter!
