Something to munch on....

Having something healthy to snack on is really key to staying on track throughout the day.  But, on most days there are cookies or chips taunting me at the office.  To avoid the temptation, I always have a bag of almonds at the office.  But that can get a bit boring.  To keep things interesting, I've compiled a list of my favorite clean snacks.  Bookmark this page - it'll be your one stop shop for a variety of snack ideas!

- String cheese
- Greek yogurt
- Granola
- Apples and peanut butter
- Lara bars
- Air popped popcorn
- Almond crackers and laughing cow cheese
- Homemade trail mix - 1/4 c almonds, 1/8 c dried cranberries,  1/8 c dark chocolate chips
- Sugar snap peas
- Hard boiled eggs
- Smoothie
- Cucumbers or Bell Peppers with Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip
- Slice of Banana Oatmeal Bread

Weekly Meal Plans

I feel like every weekend I spend hours planning out my meal list for the week.  To make my life easier, and hopefully yours!, I am going to publish a week's worth of meals.  Stay tuned to this post over the next few weeks because it will build and build until you have a month's worth of meals planned.  After a month, the rotation can be started over again :)  I've also left spots for trying out new recipes, but the core list is clean, easy to prepare, and can be prepped on Sunday and frozen for later in the week - all of my favorite things!  Enjoy!!

1) Taco Soup
2) Turkey Meatloaf + potatoes
