Morning Snack - how to keep up the energy

Please read my previous post on what I eat for breakfast.  

I try to eat a morning snack about 3 hours after breakfast.  This snack is small yet productive.  Protein is the key so I eat one of the following:


  • turkey
  • chicken
  • tuna
  • salmon
The serving should be the size of the palm of my hand.  I do not overdo the protein, the extra my body doesn't need will show up on my tooshie!  (I like to make up words and spelling!)


Along with that I have a bowl of one of the following:

  • 1/2 grapefruit
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup mixed berries
  • 1/2 banana (if I am going to do my exercises in the morning
  • small apple
  • 1/2 cup peaches
I try to eat a variety throughout the week.  Mixing up the colors makes for a healthier diet.

Yellow banana
Red apple
Blue berries
Pink grapefruit

Also, because of the mercury found in some fish, I am careful how often I eat fish.  Please look into the current recommendations.  I pre-cook my meat on Monday so it is handy for a few days worth of snacks and meals.  Turkey is very affordable, so we pop one in the oven as often as possible.  

Here are a few products I love:

Of course these have some sodium.  
Oh well.  I just do the best I can!
