Snack Cravings Guide

When I was participating in the 7-day real food challenge, I had tons of cravings for foods that were not "real". So I drew up this list and posted in right on the fridge so I had no excuses. Whether you are doing your own real food challenge, or simply trying to snack healthier, this should definitely help. Even though our challenge ended a few weeks ago, I still use this as a guideline when the cravings strike.

What are you craving?

Something crunchy? Try...
Raw veggies with hummus
Celery with peanut butter
Banana chips
Peanut Bar
Baked potato chips (real ones, not reconstructed potatoes!)
Baked whole wheat tortilla chips with bean dip
Nuts or seeds

Something sweet? Try...
Fresh Fruit
Oatmeal with maple syrup or honey (hot or cold)
Fruit rope / strip / leather
Dried plums or raisins
Fruit sorbet (homemade is best)

Something salty? Try...
Baked potato chips
Baked whole wheat tortilla chips

Something creamy? Try...
Glass of milk
Cottage cheese

Something meaty?
Hard-boiled eggs
Scrambled eggs
Tuna fish

Something like dessert? Try...
Cinnamon baked apple
Whole wheat zucchini or carrot or banana bread
Larabar (they make lots of dessert flavors, like apple pie, pecan,
banana bread, peanut butter cookie, cashew cookie, bananas foster, etc)

Not sure what you want? Try...
A bowl of cereal (homemade granola is awesome)
Baked sweet potato fries
Turkey and cheese roll-ups
Peanut butter and jelly sandwich

What are some of your favorite healthy snacks?
