My personal trainer suggested that I start a 40-30-30 diet to get out of my weight loss plateau. What do you all like to eat for snacks? I'm used to high-carb snacks, like crackers or cereal bars, so I could really use some suggestions!
Here are some 40-30-30 snack ideas I had...I calculated the macronutrient ratios using FitDay.
-4oz low fat cottage cheese mixed with 1 tsp flax oil, 2 kiwis
-1 small apple and 2 light string cheeses
-1/2 cup salsa mixed with 2 tbs fat free shredded cheddar and 1/6 avocado with 10 baked tortilla chips
-2 Tbs hummus eaten with a small zucchinni, sliced (sounds strange but SO GOOD!) and a slice of fat free cheese
-1 serving ham in a small whole wheat pita with mustard, a small pickle, and 8 raw almonds
-1 cup eggplant cubes, steamed, with peanut sauce made from 1/2 tbs reduced fat peanut butter, 2 tbs tamari, and 1 tsp agave nectar with lime and cayenne to taste
-Whole wheat mini bagel with 1/5 avocado, 1 slice of fat free cheese, and 1/3 cup alfalfa sprouts and a boiled egg white
-Whole wheat mini bagel with 1 tbs low fat whipped cream cheese, 1 oz lox, and red onion and capers to taste
-Low fat Nutri-Grain waffle spread with 2 tsp low-fat peanut butter and a boiled egg white
-1/2 oz turkey jerky and 10 apple chips
-8oz container of fat free plain yogurt with 1 tsp flax seed oil
