Have you ever heard of a turducken? It’s a chicken cooked inside of a duck cooked inside of a turkey.
This is NOT a post about a turducken. Just in case you were wondering.
The goal in my daily food consumption is to eat a healthy, filling breakfast.
Have a mid-morning snack.
Eat a vegetable heavy lunch.
Eat another mid-afternoon snack.
Then eat a supper that is also vegetable heavy and with a lean meat based protein.
I have already covered a couple of breakfast items that I enjoy (Chobani and granola and the Whitey omelet.) Here is one of my favorite snack packs. While I did not make this up, necessarily, I do not know anyone else throwing together a little turkashewcot (tur-CASH-oo-kot) snack.
The Turkashewcot Snack
1 oz – Turkey Perky Jerky – 100 cals
20 g – Trader Joe’s Unsulfured Blenheim Apricots – 55 cals
28 g – Trader Joe’s Roasted/Unsalted Cashews – 170 cals
Mix it all up in a small bowl. Use your fingers as utensils. Enjoy.
This is sooooo much better for you than a processed 100 calorie snack pack and much more interesting than celery.
So there you have it folks. I would love comments with other healthy snack ideas that AREN’T raw carrots or celery.
No offense. We ALL know that those are healthy snacks. Let’s just mix it up a bit.
