I’ve always loved snacks. There have been days when I have eaten no real meals and just snacked all day. It’s possible that may have contributed a bit to how I got to the point that I’m now on Nutrisystem, but who knows?
On this plan, you get two snacks during the day. The first is a protein snack, like yogurt, in the morning.
The second snack of the day contains a power fuel (protein) and a smart carb. This is my favorite snack because, hello, a girl needs her carbs!
Half a pear, from a can in water or juice (not syrup): 22 calories; 1/2 cup non-fat cottage cheese: 81 calories. Total: 103 calories
You can swap out the fruit here too. This is really good with any fruit but my favorites are pears, peaches, and pineapple.
2 ounces deli ham: 74 calories; 1 cup cubed cantaloupe: 54 calories. Total: 128
One of my favorite food combos is prosciutto and melon. The prosciutto isn’t really Nutrisystem-approved (not to mention it’s on the pricey side), but a good deli ham is a perfectly acceptable substitute. This was a really yummy snack.
Strawberries: 22 calories for 10 berries; 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt: 33 calories. Total: 55 calories.
Plain Greek yogurt isn’t very good by itself and the flavored stuff is high in sugar, so this is the best compromise. It helps if you have a cute snack-buddy to eat with you 😊
1 medium nectarine: 62 calories; 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt: 33 calories. Total: 95 calories.
You may have gathered, this is the same method as the cottage cheese. You can pair this with any fruit you like, keeping in mind different fruits have different calorie counts.
Finally, hummus and veggies. The veggies are free and a 1/4 cup serving of hummus is 109 calories. You can buy it (check the nutritional content) or make it. I have a really yummy recipe riighhhht here. <— Keep in mind this post was back at the beginning of this blog, when I had a bit of a different goal. I like to think my posts are better now! :0)
