A lot of people who start eating a primal or paleo diet will complain that they don’t know what to snack on during the day. I’m guilty of it myself, especially when I first started eating primal. Working a 9 to 5 job doesn’t always make it easy either but the key is (as always) to plan your lunches every week and have your snacks prepared. This prevents running to the office snack closet and grabbing a bag of chips or cookies!
A rule I’ve followed over the past couple of years is pretty simple…snack on real foods or products. Ones that you can actually read the entire ingredient list. Here are five primal snacks that keep me going through the day!
Cottage Cheese with Fruit and Nuts
I promise I don’t eat the whole container. Just one serving 🙂
They have a ton of different ones but my recent favorite is this Cashew & Ginger Spice flavor. I love Kind Bars because if you look at the ingredient list you will recognize each one. It’s one of the best bars I’ve found with nothing processed.
Dark Chocolate & Blueberries
I think I am officially addicted to dark chocolate. Even if it’s just the tiniest piece I usually have a bite every night. I usually stick to at least 80% cacao.
If you get one just the perfect ripeness, avocados are an awesome snack just on their own!
Justin’s Honey Almond Butter with an Apple or Banana
I just recently discovered Justin’s brand and absolutely love it. It is so tasty but yet so good for you. Here are the ingredients: Dry Roasted Almonds, Honey Powder (Sugar, Honey), Organic Palm Fruit Oil, Sea Salt. Honey is my favorite flavor so far and it only has 3 grams of sugar! Throw a tablespoon of this on an apple of banana and you have yourself a tasty, healthy, and real snack.
