Healthy tips from a Registered Dietitian

Quick snacks and mini meals

Here are some great ideas as published in the September 2008 issue of American Baby magazine!

-soy chips & hummus

-greek yogurt & honey, walnuts and half a cup of granola

-string cheese and an apple or pear

-lentil soup

-sliced turkey & avocado in a whole wheat wrap (Julie recommends natural turkey)

-almond butter & sliced banana on a whole wheat English muffin or rolled up in a whole wheat wrap

-1 package plain instant oatmeal & 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (you can carry this to work easily in an empty baby food jar)

-egg white omelet stuffed with avocado

-homemade trail mix made with unsalted dry-roasted nuts or soy nuts, dried cranberries and sunflower seeds (Julie recommends raw nuts, too!)

-lowfat yogurt mixed with a high fiber cereal such as Fiber One (Julie recommends: Nature’s Path Flax Plus cereal)

-1 cup 1 percent cottage cheese mixed with half a banana and 1 tablespoon almond butter (tastes like cookie dough – you must try it to believe it!)

-Weight Watchers bagel (high protein) topped with cottage cheese and tomato sauce and then broiled (Julie recommends a mini or small bagel with natural ingredients)

-Smoothie made with any combination of the following ingredients: skim milk, soy milk, almond milk, nonfat yogurt, vanilla or chocolate protein powder, banana, berries, almond or peanut butter, wheat germ, flaxseed oil, ice (Julie recommends 1/2 cup soy milk,  1 tbsp nonfat dry milk powder, half a banana, 1/2 cup berries and 1 tbsp of raw walnuts or ground flaxseed)
