What did I eat today?

Busy days can grab ahold of us and cause a brain malfunction in remembering what we ate for the day. Try taking a moment tonight and write down what you ate. How hard was it to remember?

My Day:

Breakfast:  2/3 cup Nature’s Path Smart Bran with 1/2 cup blueberries and Vanilla Light Soy Milk

Snack: Grapefruit

Lunch: 1 cup spinach, 1 cup cauliflower, 1/4 cup onion, 1/4 cup unsalted roasted almonds with Farm Boy Greek dressing (which my recent client totally hooked me on – 25 calories for each delicious tablespoon)

Snack: More almonds and carrots (on the road all day)

Dinner: 6 oz of scallops with broccoli and a baked sweet potato

Have a wonderful weekend! Come back Monday for my next blog.

Yours in good health,

Nicole Cormier, RD, LDN

Top 3 Summer Travel Snacks!

Top 3 Summer Travel Snacks!

I recently was meeting with a client to problem-solve some traveling she is going to be doing in July. We started brainstorming ideas for snacks that would work best for her situation. I shared with her some of my favorite summer snacks and realized they are great travel snacks, which makes sense, because I am always traveling to all of my clients! I felt it would be fabulous to share them with everyone.

#1:      Soy Crisps and Baby Carrots

Tip:         Plain or sea salt flavor soy crisps. Try to buy organic baby carrots if available. The nonorganic might have been soaked in chlorine before packaged. Eat them together at the same time for a delicious crunch.

#2:      Nuts and Dried Apricots

 Tip:         Soak nuts in water overnight then drain to make them easier to digest. Make sure you measure out ¼ cup of nuts. Try individually bagging them into portions or keep a measuring cup in the container. If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, hit them up for your nuts and apricots to save some money.

#3:      Ak-mak crackers and Laughing Cow light cheese with cucumber slices

Tip:         Make layers with the cheese and cucumbers. Spread cheese on cracker, then top with cucumber slices. Try the flavored Laughing Cow cheeses. Ak-mak crackers are an excellent source of fiber and you can have 5 of them per serving.
