Snack and Lunch Ideas

I get asked all the time, ” What do YOU eat for Lunch or for Snacks?” so here are a few…

Protein, Carb and Fats = BALANCE

SNACK ideas…

*a GREAT Protein Snack is cold cooked Shrimp with 1 or 2 Tbs. Tzatziki yogurt/cucumber Sauce

(Sauce sold at Wegmans  –http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=744726&storeId=10052&langId=-1 )

*Combo of 10 almonds (7 cal each) to any piece of fruit snack you want.
