21 Day Fix Snack Ideas

Who doesn’t like to snack?

I know you!! You are sitting on the couch and all you can think of is how HUNGRY you are and what you can snack on.

Come on admit it!

One of my favorite things about the 21 Day Fix is just how flexible it is.  Yes YOU can eat out, yes YOU can have your wine.  That being said you are so conditioned to feel like you are going to make a mistake in your choices that you either don’t eat enough or you keep it SUPER BORING (insert sad emoji..).

I know in my challenge groups the question always comes up about what snacks are SAFE and what are FORBIDDEN in every group.

If you are doing the 21 Day Fix I am giving a big PAT on your BACK for making probably the best decision of the year for yourself.

woot woot…..

You can literally follow this plan every day of your life, am I right???

If you are still struggling at all with choices or what to do please don’t hesitate to email me at coachannagray@gmail.com so that I can work with you on making it work FOREVER.  Until then, enjoy these healthy snack ideas!

1. Peanut Butter Apple: For a little energy and a suprisingly filling snack, spread 2 tsp natural peanut butter on a sliced small apple. Equals 1 purple, 1 tsp

2. Fancy Oats:  Curb your sweet tooth with a filling snack – steel cut oats topped with unsweetened shredded coconut. Equals 1 yellow, 1 orange

3. The Greek Berry: For those missing their fruit-filled yogurt, add blueberries to Greek yogurt. For a cooler treat, freeze the berries first for one hour before adding to your yogurt. Equals 1 red, 1 purple

4. Egg Sandwich: For those run out the door in the morning, place two hard-boiled eggs, halved and on a piece of whole wheat toast, folded in half. Equals 1 red, 1 yellow

5. Coffee Crush: This is my coffee coolatta replacement. Blend one cup of iced coffee with one scoop of chocolate protein powder. Equals 1 red

6. Almond Butter Waffle: Here’s another quick snack that keeps you full. Spread 2 tsp almond butter on a whole grain waffle (kashi waffles are my fave and very easy to find.) Equals 1 yellow, 2 tsp

7.  Simple Egg Scramble: In just 4 minutes, you can have a well-balanced snack. Heat 1 tsp coconut oil in a frying pan, add in mixed frozen vegetables, and crack two eggs on top of them. Mix with a spatula until eggs are cooked through. Equals 1 green, 1 red, 1 tsp

8. Pineapple & Cottage Cheese: A unique combination that is sweet and tasty. Mix sliced pineapple with 2% cottage cheese for a light and healthy snack. Equals 1 red,  1 purple

9. Banana Creamiscle: I borrowed this treat from my sister. Blend one half of a banana with unsweetened almond milk. Put the mixture in the freezer for an hour prior to chill, and then enjoy…yummy! Equals 1 purple, 1 yellow

10. Tuna and Hot Sauce: The hot sauce kills all of that over-fishy taste, and you are left with a high protein snack that will make your coworkers ask what you’re eating. Drain one can of tuna fish and top with Tobasco sauce  to taste. Equals 1 red

11. Healthier Egg McMuffin: Can’t imagine not enjoying your McMuffine every morning? While you may not be able to enjoy McDonald’s version, you definitely can have this one as a snack or get creative and make it a meal by adding a lean protein to the sandwich. Fry one whole egg in one tsp cocnut oil and place on half of a whole grain English muffin. Equals one-half red, 1 yellow,1 tsp

12. Kale Chips: Another one of my faves…the healthiest green potato chip you will ever eat. De-stem and tear kale into bite size pieces, then add a tsp of extra virgin olive oil. Lay pieces flat on a cookie sheet sprinkle withyour favorite spices. I like cayenne pepper. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. Equals 1 green, 1 tsp

13. Beef or Turkey Jerkey: An easy-to-carry high protein snack. When choosing a jerky, make sure to look at the ingredients list and choose one that does not contain monosodium glutamate. Just be careful with jerky as lots are extremely high in sodium. Equals 1 red

14. Mixed Nuts: Nuts are a great source of healthy fats, and they travel well. What I like to do is buy a bag of almonds, walnuts, cashews, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, and mix them together on my own. Remember, unsalted nuts only! Equals 1 blue

15.  Banana and Peanut Butter on Toast: A favorite from my childhood, spread 1 tsp of peanut butter on whole wheat toast and top with a half of a banana, sliced. Equals 1 yellow, 1 purple, 1 tsp

16. Almond Butter Strawberry Sandwich: No jam, no worries. Spread 1 tsp of almond butter on half a piece of whole grain bread, layer with strawberry slices and fold in half. Equals 1 yellow, 1 purple, 1 tsp

17. Baked Apple: Core and then cut your apple in half, dust with cinnamon. Place on baking sheet center side up at 400°  for 15 minutes or until the apple becomes slighty tender. Equals 1 purple

18. Red Pepper with Goat Cheese: This is super yummy if you enjoy goat cheese, which I happen to love.  Take raw, fresh red pepper slices and top with crumpled goat cheese. Equals 1 green, 1 blue

Easy Smokey Southwestern Seasoning

Go check your pantry.. Go.. Now… What do you have in there?  A bunch of half full spice containers that need a home.  Why not put some spice blends together and have them ready to use ON THE FLY like I eat.  For me dinner is usually “get a protein out of the fridge” throw some spice on it and then let it hit the skillet, grill or oven.  You will find that I am SOOO SUPER simple!

Vegan Dairy Free Cream Filled Chocolate Cupcakes | “Chlostess” Creme-Filled Cupcakes

I HAD to get this recipe up QUICK because I had so many people intrigued by it.  I am dying and wish I made more of these and will be for sure, the only problem is I will eat them.  I took this recipe from Chloe Coscarelli’s Chloe’s Kitchen cookbook (winner of Cupcake Wars)

So is this a Healthy Cupcake (if you include Sugar in Healthy then YES) but truth is has sugar… the ingredients are all-natural so your insides will actually metabolize this versus the alternative Hostess Ding Dong which is made up of nothing but fake food.

My recommendation… make these and then refrigerate them.  I am thankful I had 2 left over and I ate one right out of the fridge and YEP, heavenly!

Avocado Pesto Pasta | Paleo and Vegan

I love Cookbooks.  I grew up with Cookbooks, my mom loved to cook.  I thought I would never be able to spend the time experimenting with different recipes until I retired from my Nursing Career last year.  My goal now is to experiment and share those that I wished I knew of when I had my horribly busy schedule.  This recipe my friends is perfect for you and your busy life.  It is super simple, super healthy, super healing gut friendly, and super yummy!  It came from one of my favorite New Cookbooks Chloe’s Kitchen by Chloe Coscarelli

Avocado Pesto

This Created plenty of Leftovers to use for Whatever PESTO is needed for.  I think I will coat some Chicken with it.

Paleo and 21 Day Fix Friendly Crockpot Chicken Curry

Lets start by saying how much I love Chicken Curry.  I grew up with it.  I have no idea what my mothers recipe was but I love the flavor and the spice of it.   So, when I picked up my new copy of Danielle Walker of Against the Grain’s New Cookbook Meals Made Simple I had to give this one a go.  I first had to take a look at the recipe to see if it met the Gray Family Checklist.

1- Was it Grain Free

2- Was it chalk full of Protein (hubby complains about being hungry)

3- Did it have any “ickiness” that the girls would stick their nose up and shun

It passed the TEST!   So, how was it?  First, the smell in the house was AMAZEBALLS and second it was SUPER DUPER easy to make.  I did modify the recipe from the original and that is what you see.  Would I change anything?  Yes 1 thing.  If you do not have all the spices listed but have curry powder then I would substitute them with Curry Powder.  I will be making this again using the Curry Powder and will report back on how much to use.  I felt this may have been lacking the kick I was expecting.

But here is the response from the family.

Sasha “awesome” 
OG “good”
Jeremy “very good” 

Looks like it was a winner!

I did Serve this over Cauliflower Rice
