But as your trainer and nutrition expert, I’d like to propose something a little different.

Don’t make too many.

So many of us set impossible standards to maintain.

But the key to a healthy lifestyle is balance. Manageable tasks whether it be exercise or a daily eating regimen that you can keep (and not just in January).

As we’ve discussed, meal prepping is an excellent way to have healthy meals ready and set, made to grab-on-the-go, or just have ready when you get home after a long day.

Let’s take this to the next level for 2017 with meal prep snack boxes, a complete Starbucks copycat except cheaper and way better!

And you can ensure you get the right type of calories and nutrition in-between meals because snacking is where you are most likely to fail with dietary goals.

But this simple snack box is nutritious and satisfies the sweet and the salty.

  • Apples provide fiber, many vitamins and nutrients.
  • Peanut butter contains healthy fats, oils and protein.
  • Raw veggies give you a whole array of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
  • Boiled egg provides much needed protein. The yolk contains the majority of the eggs beneficial nutrients.
  • Cheese is an excellent source of calcium and added protein.
  • Pita bread gives you some carbs that’ll help sustain those energy crashes mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

You can easily substitute other items in your snack box (ex. raw nuts and seeds add some extra variety). You can also experiment with alternative nut butters instead of peanut butter.
