Snacks snacks snacks. Err’body wants them, but how to find some good ones that fill you up inside- and take you from 3PM to dinner? Put down your cheese and crackers- these 3 ideas will have you in happy macro heaven!!!
Snack 1: Shrimp-Avocado-Toast
19 C | 9 F | 23 P | 7 Fiber
You can use already cooked shrimp or throw some raw shrimp into boiling water for 2 minutes and rinse them off in cold water. Poached shrimp can be stored in the fridge for about 2 days.
Toast a slice of bread (I used Ezekiel sesame bread here). Chop up 2.5 ounces (68 grams) of poached shrimp and combine with 40 grams of mashed avocado (about 1/2 a medium avocado). Season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lime and spread upon your toast.
Wrap in plastic for transport. Note: this does not transport entirely too well. I’m sorry. But maybe an at home snack….
Snack 2: Sweet Potato-Cottage Cheese-Salsa
29 C | 2 F | 14 P | 4 Fiber
Steam a medium sweet potato in your microwave. Cut it in half. Top half with 1/2 cup (113 grams cottage cheese-we used 1% fat) and 2 tbsp of your favorite salsa. Season with salt and pepper.
Tuck into a tupperware for portability.
Snack 3: Chicken-Feta-Cucumbers
4 C | 7 F | 28 P | 2 Fiber
Cube up 75 grams of chicken breast and combine with a chopped and peeled Persian (mini) cucumber (100 grams), and 1 ounce (28 grams) of good sheep’s milk feta. Season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon. Mason jars work great here to bring to and fro, or if you hate hipsters, just a damned ziplock bag! Pull out your jar or sack and stare down all the donut eaters in your office!
