    I'm trying really hard to eat clean, eat more protein, veg, etc. Less carbs.

    Eating 6 times a day.

    Anybody have some good snack ideas?

    Getting tired or yogurt and hummus!

    raw almonds! I always have a bag of them handy. but make sure they are raw and not baked because it denatures the proteins/enzymes. it's a decent source of protein and healthy fats.

    I like to cut a Granny Smith apple up and sprinkle cinnamon on the slices...sooo good. I have one each morning about an hour before lunch.

    here are my go to snack. apple or banana and peanut butter. i eat only all natural peanut butter. no sugar added to it. i do get it with salt because it taste like paste if you do not have salt in it. greek yogurt, and frozen smoothies that I make at home. I buy a bag of frozen fruit it has blue berries, raspberries, blackberries and sometimes strawberries. I put them in a blender with cinnamon, a little nutmeg, and some type of tea usually a mixture of green and ginger add some honey for a little sweetness and that's it. if its during breakfast I add a small amount of oatmeal. i do hummus and broccoli. I also just eat plain fruit. Dude, there are tons of fruit that you can eat. Green apples, pineapples, strawberries, watermelons and cherries. I eat all of those for a late night or afternoon snack with a almonds or peanuts

    Dried apricots are amazing.

    Also, Tesco do a great bag of mixed nuts and raisins for just £1.35, amazingly cheap!

    On the fresh side of things, I do love freshly sliced pineapple and melon is good too!

    Try thinking outside the box, I even got some lychees to snack on and they were nice icon_smile.gif

    Berry selections are my favourite, just buy a selection of berries from your local store or market and mix and match them and they taste amazing

    Also, tinned mandarins are to die for, although at times they aren't overly filling so maybe bulk it up with some tinned melon.

    Also, peanut butter on toast with a protein shake is great! I also like to use cashew butter, sooo good!

    While we're on cashews, cashew nuts are great for snacking on too!

    I also find that white tea or other herbal teas can sometimes give me that 'fix' I am after

    Bananas can be filling and they have great health benefits.

    Egg sandwiches are great, hardboil the eggs (put eggs in boiling water for around 15 minutes, then mix with extra low fat mayo and whatever seasoning you like (I like to change it around but coriander, pepper and parika is nice, cumin and turmeric I also add sometimes)


    If you're feeling superhungry then tuna pasta is an option, add some veggies alongside to boost the nutrients

    Quite a few suggestions for you here, if you want more then ask and I will search my brain but I'm sure other members will contribute some good ideas too (I really wanna try the banana 'cookies' I saw posted on here somewhere

    Unless you're ketogenic, carbs are needed for proper metabolic processes. 40% protein, 40% carbs, 20% fat is a reasonable distribution for calories. Love your carbs!

    Trail mix is a favorite of mine. You can either buy a premixed package, or make your own. Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, brazil nuts, almonds, and peanuts are the healthiest ones by far, but buy what you like. And eating a diet rich in nuts and red meat helps your body naturally produce more testosterone. Benies!

    I just made my own: Craisins, Salted Cashews, Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, Chocolate Chips, Dried Coconut Chips.

    All from Costco. The Craisins were on sale @ $4.79 for a 3lb bag. The Chocolate Chips were cheap @ $7.79 for a 3.5lb bag.

    Total cost was about $5.75/lb and yielded a total of 21.5lbs of trail mix. I distributed these into seven, 3lb-ish bags, and each bag will last me between 1-2 weeks depending upon how much I mix it in with cottage cheese or ricotta cheese.
