WIAW – Snack Time!

So, I basically spent this entire morning convinced that today was Tuesday, and wondered why it felt like Wednesday.  Good one, Rachel – Happy Wednesday to you!

I know the theme for this month’s What I Ate Wednesday posts is sensible summer snacking – but I’ve been running around doing various things, and been quite thrown off (woohoo jet lag) the past few days, so I can’t say my snacks have been the best.  Oh yeah, and I also didn’t get pictures of most of them, so I’m doing what I can.  First, some of yesterday’s eats:

Pre-workout banana and coffee with soy milk.  Boring and repetitive, but it works – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Sweet and savory egg sandwich!  With sautéed baby kale for extra veg, and a smear of goat cream cheese and apricot fruit spread on a sandwich thin.

quick lunch – leftover chickpea salad, leftover green beans, seaweed salad from Costco! (first time in 5 months)

Sensible snack: two small handfuls of this soy energy blend trail mix – again from Costco.  Crunchy soybeans are delicious.

Dinner by Mom! Yummy roasted red pepper soup served with greek yogurt and herbs de Provence (cold).

And a ridiculous amount of homemade tilapia ceviche.  Plus a corn tortilla.  I think I prefer raw/cured fish over cooked.

Now, let’s talk snacks.  First of all, what you see above is only the eats I managed to snap pictures of.  I also had a few other snacks here and there, but I was out and about and didn’t really get a chance to document everything.

So, let’s take a look at some of my favorite sensible snacks (recycled photos):

Fruit, nuts, or cracker/small slice of bread with hummus and cucumber.  I love munching fruit and nuts – raw if possible.

Hummus and veggies! Probably my favorite quick veggie-ful snack.  I’m also a big fan of carrots/celery with nut butter.  Mmm.

Apple (or veggies) and nut butter.  Classic.

Plain old fruit!  I’m a big fruit-muncher. I know I crave sugar and carbs, and fruit is a great way to satisfy those cravings.  Current favorites: berries, melon, apples, bananas.

Lettuce wraps!  A great way to use up some leftovers or make a smaller, lighter version of your favorite savory sandwich.

What is your favorite veggie snack?

Do you like leftovers?

    Well you certainly have several good, flavorful and healthy snacks throughout the day! All of your items look truly delicious Rachel, especially those strawberries, such a color they are! My favorite veggie snack is raw peppers, carrots, cucumbers dipped in a greek yogurt dip or hummus of some kind… well that is my current favorite :)
