Your Snacking Solution To Keep Your Energy Up …

Good morning,

If you are spending more time than normal at home these days (and most of us definitely are!) you’ve probably noticed a few new temptations.

They are in your kitchen:

  • all the food inside your fridge
  • all the food in your pantry and/or kitchen cabinets

And these are probably especially tempting if you stocked up on snacks and “extras” when the lockdown of social distancing/isolation hit!

I’ve got two things in this blog post that might help. One is a tip and another is a recipe.

The Tip …

If you find yourself making too many trips to the kitchen for food, what about setting specific times for your meals and/or snacks?

If you know you have a meal coming up in an hour or so, you might be less apt to sneak a snack.


A Recipe For You …

Actually, this isn’t a recipe so much as a DIY idea.

Staying on-track is all about planning ahead … and putting together some Healthy Snack Bento Boxes is a fun and easy solution. the Other Pain Clinic Inc, the Other Pain Clinic, pain, chronic pain, mental health, nutrition, snacks, food therapy

If you have kids, they will enjoy them too!

You can assemble your healthy snack bento box in a reusable meal/food container with dividers, but that’s definitely not necessary. Instead, you can use ziploc snack bags or other small sealable containers (even a lunch box if you have one!).

How To Bento Box It …

Simply package up your ingredients and keep them in the fridge until snack/mealtime!

Tip: make sure your bento box contains at least one protein-rich ingredient. This will help stabilize your blood sugar and also help you feel fuller, longer.

Possible Healthy Snack Bento Box Ingredients:

  • Tuna
  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Raw nuts (walnuts, almonds and pecans are great choices)
  • Grapes
  • Berries
  • Veggie sticks
  • Hummus
  • String cheese

Try to include a mix of 3 to 4 different items in your boxes.

The trick is to get these assembled BEFORE you are hungry or feel like snacking! That way you’ll feel less tempted by less-than-healthy snack foods that might be lingering in your kitchen.

I hope this idea helps you – and your family – stay on track!


Make your day an amazing day,
