Fuel Food Snack Ideas


I recently decided I needed some new fuel food snack ideas so of course I consulted my Facebook family–my go-to information resource. 😉

Here are their suggestions. You decide which ones work for you!

Susan Oglesbee Hyatt

Frozen blueberries, nuked for 30 seconds, then mixed with vanilla yogurt. Apple & peanut butter. Handful of raisins & almonds. Buckwheat toaster waffle with honey or agave syrup. Crackers, grapes & a lil bit of cheese. Yogurt with Kashi go lean crunch cereal. Garbanzo beans with celery, red onion, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper.

Jelly Bellies! Hey sometimes a girl has to munch. I am the whole wheat pita pocket queen. Everyday I stuff one with organic salad greens, veggies and TJ’s Ranch dressing (low fat and sugar). Add a cup of veggie soup for lunch or dinner.

Esther Golton
Brown rice sushi rolls with something yummy in the middle (avocado or tuna or cucumbers… dipped in soy-sauce and wasabi, of course! Yum!

Laura Hilton English
Shelled Edamame (find them at Trader Joes in the frozen food section). With a little salt you can be fooled into thinking it is almost like fries (or at least I can).

Liz Gallagher

Martha Monaco
homemade trail mix with almonds, raisins, dried cranberries, sunflower kernels, chocolate chips; hummus and whole wheat pita; greek yogurt with granola.

Amy Johnson
Clif bar’s Zbars (they’re supposed to be for kids but they are delish!), whole wheat english muffin with peanut butter, and yogurt with Kashi go lean cereal mixed in.

Sue Spoden
Sunflower seed granola from Clean Eating. If you like oatmeal, sunflower seeds, peanut butter… Mix 3/4 cup sf seeds, 1/4c ground flaxseeds, 1/2 c almonds, 1/2 c shredded unsweetened coconut, 3 tbls nat. peanut butter, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/3 c agave syrup or honey, 1/2 tsp vanilla. Bake at 300F in a sheet cake pan for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and mix in 1/2 c dried cranberries when cool. A great, high protein snack. Make 12 servings – 234 calories, 13g protein. Yum! One of my favorite things.
