Sticking to a healthy snack regimen is the best thing you can do for your body. Since starting my weight loss journey, I struggled to find quick, easy, kid-friendly snacks that take minimum prep time. Of course there’s always apples, cheese sticks, fruit and salads, but let’s face it… BORING!! I’m going to share a few of my super simple, quick recipes that are very budget friendly (because we all know how expensive eating healthy can be).
So yummy and filling! This recipe calls for:
- Canned tuna (or chicken) drained
- Avacado (halved & pitted)
- A dash of lime juice
My little ones had fun with this one and 1-2 bites is actually quite filling… Once you mix all of the ingredients, you can chill it for about 15-20 minutes, roll into balls and serve! Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/2 Cup of Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1/3 Cup of Honey
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Cup of Old Fashioned Oats
- 1/2 Cup Flaxseed Mill (ground)
- 1/3 Cup of Mini Chocolate Chips
So long hefty pizza rolls (my old time favorite). These zucchini bites take minimal prepping and only 5-7 minutes to bake (350).
- Zucchini (sliced)
- Pizza Sauce
- Shredded Mozzerella Cheese
I told you… minimal prep, quick and easy is what I’m going for. You’ll thank me later!
Another one of my kids’ favorites! Slice an apple, cut a circle around the core to take out, spread peanut butter and sprinkle mini chocolate chips. Easy peasy!
- Apples (Granny Smith or Red)
- Creamy Peanut Butter
- Mini Chocolate Chips
