My Top 5 Favourite Snacks

Do you feel like trying something different from your usual snacks? Do you want to add some variety to your menu? Here are my five favourite snacks to recharge your batteries and sustain you until your next meal. Each of these snacks has been adapted to be integrated into the nutrition plan prepared by your nutritionist!

The classic

30 g of 4% M.F. Allegro cheese (the size of a finger off a brick of cheese) + 20 grapes, or 1 apple, or 10 Kashi crackers, or 3 Ryvita, or 6 Melba Toasts, or 6 Triscuits

Depending on what you mix your cheese with (fruit or crackers), this snack contains either: 1 meat and alternatives + 1 fruit or 1 starch (depending on your choice)

The organized

If you like the combination of sweet and salty, this is the ideal snack for you! It must be prepared the night before for the juice from the frozen berries to mix with the cheese, which adds some sweetness!

½ cup of 1% M.F. cottage cheese + 1 cup of frozen small berries on top of the cheese

This snack contains: 1 meat and alternatives + 1 fruit

The little monkey

This simple snack is ready in no time, rich in protein, and will sustain you for a while!

¾ cup plain 0% M.F. Greek yogurt + 1 small ripe banana

This high-protein snack contains: 1 milk and alternatives + 1 fruit

The vegetarian

A healthy snack that will ease your hunger long enough to satisfy you until your next meal.
As much raw vegetables as you want (at least enough to fill your hand) + 2 tablespoons of dip*

*Greek yogurt Ranch dip

  • 1 cup 0% M.F. plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chives
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons skim milk

This refreshing snack = FREEBIE! 😀

The sweet tooth

1 Zero Diet muffin (ex: pineapple zucchini muffins on p. 52 of your Zero Diet book or 1 frozen Zero Diet muffin (apple crisp muffin or zucchini carrot)) + ½ cup 0% M.F. vanilla or fruit yogurt to use as icing!

This snack contains: 1 starch + 1 milk and alternatives

Bon appétit!
