Turkashewcot – Snack on This

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.

Hit me.

    The jerky and the apricots sound delicious- I love dried fruit like nobody’s business! But I do not like nuts at all. You can keep those… lol.

    I should come back and check the comments later. As it stands now, I have fresh fruit or veggies, and a massive amount of raisins I can snack on. No junky snack foods anywhere to be seen though. 🙂

    I like the cashew idea. Yum! I love snacking so I get the unsalted sunflower seeds in the shell and crack and eat those babies at my desk. Plus berries. Love berries. Blackberries, raspberries, strawberries… but not blueberries. I don’t like blueberries. Blasphemy I know.
    I do the standards of string cheese, peanut butter or veggies too.

    One of my favorite snacks is a chocolate shake:
    1 frozen banana
    1 scoop chocolate protein powder lite
    8 oz almond milk
    2 T PB2 – dried peanut butter
    1 packet starbucks instant coffee
    1 T ground flaxseed
    Process that all in the blender, let the caffeine kick in and then go have a great workout!

    I also love the Clean Eating Breakfast Sundae:
    1 sliced banana
    topped with 1/3 c lowfat cottage cheese
    1 T sugar free jelly of your choice
    1 T chopped pecans or walnuts.

    Both of those are under 300 calories.
