Healthy snacking

Hellouuu there ,

so I been slacking I know life has been a little bit chaotic and is been really hard to keep my eating habits in check and my dollars in my pocket.

I thought this post would be helpful for those of you who struggle with both portion control and wanting to raid the fridge every 5 minutes and also with saving money.

I have a very sedentary job ( office 8-5 pm type )

I crave a lot of crunchy foods

so I always keep snacks available ,  first off we want to snack every 3 hours to keep our insulin at a stable level ( those with PCOS , like me, and diabetes ) and to help our metabolism ( more info here )

I thought that nuts would the trick ...but they really didn't work for me , I don't have the will power to eat just 1/4 cup of peanuts or almonds and feel satisfied plus they are freaking expensive.

so I walked around my local Kroger ( it can be walmart ) and looked for superfoods aka veggies that I could buy for a week and keep in the break room fridge

sometimes I get bored of snacking without any dressing so I will post the recipes for each dip I usually pair them with.

total comes for around $10/week sometimes even less if I get them at my local farmers market


not a lot of people are a fan of these babies , but if you give them a chance I promise they wont disappoint you. Make sure to clean them with water and vinegar, I usually just cut the ends and store them in a Ziploc bag .
( pair with hummus, greek yogurt dressing or spicy red pepper dip )

Calories : around 20 per cup !!! ( unlimited munching on nom nom !!! )
Price:  $1.49 at Kroger


These are packed with vitamins , crunchy, and you can also grilled them ( no oil ) for extra softness and smoky flavor
Calories : according to this website around 29 calories when sliced/cup

Price : it varies , sometimes you can get them on sale at Kroger 3 for $3.00 these are usually on the expensive side .


I think hands down this is my favorite vegetable , is so light and it goes with everything , it doesn't make me sick or hungry, and it keeps me hydrated , PLUS I can always use them on my dark circles hehehe

Calories : 1 cucumber of around 8" is 47 calories ( I ate like 3 of these daily lol )

goes well with greek yogurt dip or some tajin

Price : 0.69 cents each at Kroger


I usually buy mine organic from walmart ( around 2 bucks )

one pack usually lasts me a week

baby carrots are delish with some hummus , although watch the hummus you get not all of them are necessarily good or low in calories


Plusssss you can make carrot chips !!!
