Avoiding HUNGER now and OVEREATING later!!
Simple, healthy snacks you can make at home or in your dorm the night before to satisfy mid-day hunger and keep you energized when you are on the run.
Cut up fresh bananas and apples
1 piece of fresh fruit or 1 cup of chopped fruit or berries
Calories: 80-120, depending on the fruit
Light microwave popcorn
Amount: 2 cups
Calories: 62 (air-popped with no condiments added)
Just pop, pack and take with you!
* Try to avoid pre-packaged popcorn that often has added calories and trans fat
Amount: portion about 1/4 to 1/3 a cup in baggies.
Make your own recipe!!
Ingredients in your trail mix could include:
- Nuts (especially walnuts and almonds)
- Dried fruit
- Fiber rich and low-sugar cereals (Kashi GoLean, Total, Cheerios, All-Bran, etc)
Raw Mixed Nuts
30g / ~1oz (about a handful)
Cut Up Veggies
Amount: About a cup
*Veggies are very healthy & low-cal so there’s no strict limit!
Carrots, celery, grape tomatoes, peppers and/or other fresh veggies.
Peanut Butter Sandwiches
Take two whole wheat crackers or triskets. Spread peanut butter on one cracker and top with the second.
Amount: Make about 4 sandwiches (depending on the cracker)
Food for thought!!
Use Nabisco Triskets (6triskets plain provide: 98 calories, 2g fat, 135mg sodium, 3g fiber) or Mini rice cakes
Red peppers and hummus
Put in a Tupperware and bring with you to class to munch on
unlimited veggies and 1/4 cup hummus
Calories: About 100
Buy these at the grocery store or out around campus (i.e. Trabant!!)
1 2-serving bag (eat the whole thing!)
Listen to your body when it tells you that you’re hungry. Having a small snack to keep you going can prevent over-consumption of too much food later.
