Healthy Snacks

I snack. A LOT. I figure most athletes do, so I thought I would share my favorite snacks - in hopes that you will share your favorites with me in return.

In no particular order - my recent favorites:
  • Veggies & pita bread with hummus (broccoli, carrots, and celery are my favorites - more dip-able)
  • Apple wedges with peanut butter (I like the Trader Joe's version with flax seeds in it - adds a bit of crunch)
  • Kefir - berry flavor
  • Trail mix with chocolate covered espresso beans (almonds, raisins, etc. - the key to a great trail mix in my book is the addition of dark chocolate espresso beans)
  • Fresh squeezed OJ (not exactly a complete snack, but soooooo good!)
  • Simply Bars - I recently discovered these - they are vegan, dairy and gluten-free, low glycemic, organic, etc. And they pack 16g of protein while still tasting good (my favorite flavor is chocolate coffee)
What are your favorite healthy snacks are that fuel your workouts? I'm always looking for new ideas.
