25 Healthy Snacks to Flatten Out Holiday Buldge

Eat more to weigh less....it's a proven mantra but I doubt it's meant for the foods we were grazing, over the holidays.

It wasn't the meal that got me...it was the "buffet like" spread of appetizers and finger foods. Oh, it's so hard to say no to another scoop of creamy crab dip or another slice of Grandma's chocolate cake, and the bubbly soda sitting so temptingly next to cups, ready filled with ice...ohhhh, don't even remind me of my stocking stuffers. oh.meee.gosh.

Some say calories don't count during the holidays but I can tell from just one day of saying -- "oh,well" -- that, they do. They count. And they add up fast. My tummy just isn't used to this bulging, overstuffed feeling. And now, the taste of those yummy treats are in my mind and therefore the craving for those foods is sure to creep up, in the days to come.

So, to help move on from the holidays and the treats that have filled our homes since the onslaught...
(going back to Halloween) I've made a Go-To list of healthy snacks.

best healthy snacks, good healthy snacks, good snacks, healthy snack ideas
Eating more to weigh less is true when done correctly. They recommend 3 meals and 2/3 snacks. But really it's up to you. You might be able to eat 3 square meals and never want a snack during the in-between or you may be one who needs 5 smalls meals throughout the day.
What methods work for you?

The snacks in white are either my faves or ones I'd like to try soon! I lie. They are all my faves except for the tomato one (which I now see I spelled wrong!) Anways.....

How about you? What are your go-to healthy snacks? 
Lets make this list bigger!

AND!!! Don't forget to enter the incredible GIVEAWAY via Katie at For Lauren and Lauren.

This is such a good list! I am still traveling for the holidays and it is so.so.hard to keep up with my normally good eating habits! I am looking forward to getting home and getting back on track! Lightly salted roasted chickpeas are a go-to snack for me. So yummy!

My fave go-to snack at work is usually some nuts and some craisins. I love the sweet/salty. I tried to do the five meals a day thing, but it's a lot of work to plan that all out and have to bring most of it to work =\ Lately I've just been doing three meals and maybe a small snack here and there to keep from overeating the rest of the time. I think the key is to not let yourself get so hungry from one meal to the next to the point that you end up stuffing your face :p

Great post for after the holidays! :) One of my favorite (kind of) healthy snacks is almonds and peanut m&m's mixed together. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!

Esther Davison said...

This is a fantastic list! I would like to add sweet potatoe chips, handful of almonds, and oatmeal with some chocolate chips thrown in. Ok that last one should really be a breakfast but if its a small package of oatmeal it could be a snack too. :o) Esther Norine Designs

Esther Davison said...

Never mind on the almonds, I just realized its number 18. Add in the sweet potatoe chips. They're awesome! :)

Jessica Odom said...

I love this list! Thanks for posting! A snack I've been loving lately is sliced tomato with salt and pepper on top of whole wheat crackers spread with Laughing Cow cheese!

Melissa said...

Great list!! I'll have to come back to this during my next shopping trip. My favorite snack is chobani's yogurt!

Shon said...

Wonderful list! Thank you for the reminders. I was just thinking about my clean foods!

Banana ice cream. Made from pureeing frozen bananas in the food processor until smooth. Drizzled with a little honey? Cures my ice cream craving. Cause I LOVE some ice cream.

Amy Shaughnessy said...

So do you think you have to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner? I just got back from a cruise where I ate 3 huge meals a day and gained 5 lbs. I don't usually eat lunch at home because I get too busy or forget. Is it bad to not eat lunch?
