BOMB + BALANCED Snack Ideas

All hail snack time (aka second lunch)!

You've got time to prep one of these babies for tomorrow and bookmark this post so you can up your second lunch game for keeps.

When clients come to me struggling with body composition, blood sugar, energy or performance, we don't touch logging or tracking until we've eliminated those huge gaps between their meals (because I know they're there).

The key is to stop seeing this midday spot as a snack and make a balanced meal out of it.

It’s just a puzzle game.

Start by hitting at least 2 of 4 from the below:

  • ✅Protein (non-negotiable)
  • ✅Veggie
  • Fat
  • Starch⠀

Note: All of these are easy af to prep and bring on the go, so no more excuses, chemosabe!

1️⃣TURKEY ROLL-UPS

  • Protein = Quality deli turkey or chicken
  • Veggie = Peppers, cukes and/or sprouts
  • Fat = Avocado
  • Starchy carb = Plantain chips as a side

2️⃣GREEK YOGURT BOWL

  • Protein = Greek yogurt
  • Veggie = Berries will give you epic micronutrients we're looking for
  • Fat = Full fat yogurt plz and add some nuts or seeds
  • Starchy carb = Quality granola and/or fruit

3️⃣SANDWICH

  • Protein = Quality deli turkey/chicken
  • Veggie = Sprouts, lettuce, tomato

4️⃣SUPER SMOOTHIE
