Admin Note: Over the weekend I transitioned to a self-hosted server and after a couple of hiccups I am back up and running. I will be catching up the days I missed posting over the next couple of days.
I woke up a little earlier this morning and headed out for my walk. For years I have always dodged getting outside early in the morning because it is too warm. Maybe it is because the humidity hasn’t spiked yet. But at 5:30 in the morning there is a touch of coolness in the air, even when it is in the low to mid 80 degree mark.
Since I was up early I decided to push my walking a bit further and I walked the longer neighborhood walk. It’s 2 miles vs. the 1.4 I have been walking the past few days. I find it hard to believe I wanted to kick up my distance vs. waiting until I knew I needed to. I am hoping this is a sustainable new attitude towards exercise.
On work days I always seem to hit the snacking hours between 3 – 5 and end up having a couple of snacks during that time. I am trying to find some lower point options that will keep me filled up. This week I tried hummus on cucumber slices with cut up Weight Watchers Smoked Mozzarella String Cheese.
The higher protein snack kept me satisfied longer and it’s a good sized snack for 3 points. I try to keep my snacks in the 1-3 point range and have 2 – 3 snacks a day, most days in the afternoon. I am always looking for snack ideas that are simple to bring to work and are not filled with processed carbs.
What is your favorite healthy snack?
