Do THM snacks trip you up? I've gotten snacks down to a science now – I know exactly what to buy, and what to eat at home, and what to eat when I'm out and about. But that DEFINITELY wasn't always the case! Even when I started to eat the Trim Healthy Mama way, I used to drive through for a burger even when I knew I shouldn't! I justified it by saying that I just didn't have time for anything else.
Now, I know better. I made these lists of snacks based on my own lack of self-control. I know that if I have just one burger at a drive-through, I'll justify more cheating and unhealthy foods. You can scroll to the bottom of this post to snag a free printable list!
In the list below you'll see a list of ideas, but please pay extra attention to the shelf-stable items – I really recommend stocking up on those and keeping some in your car or purse for last minute ideas! I just updated this list with some new additions – enjoy!
Here are a few of my favorite no-prep snacks – please make sure you add lean proteins to snacks as needed!
- deli meat
- Oikos 000 yogurt
- collagen packets
- Bai drinks
- mini-packs of olives or pickles
- Moon Cheese
- THM Shameless Crackers
- THM Crispy Addictions
- THM Protein Bars
- beef jerky/beef sticks (no sugar, low carb)
- portable nut butter
- Wasa crackers
- pork rinds
- Unique Sprouted Pretzels
- unsweetened applesauce
- Skinny Pop
- seasoned tuna packs
- Lily's Chocolate
- Think! Keto Bars (Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie & Peanut Butter Cookie Dough)
- JoJo's Raspberry Dream Chocolate Bites
- and probably one of my very favorite items – “>Creamy Chocolate flavor is on plan!)
Please remember to pair snacks with a protein source! (If you're in Bootcamp with me you have lists upon lists of ideas and protein sources so you have no excuse not to 😉)
I also have a printable list of protein bars here: THM-Friendly Protein Bars,
and a bonus list of Salty/Crunch on-plan snacks here: Salty/Crunchy THM-Friendly Snacks
Several years ago (actually I think it was recorded more than 7 years ago – after I had baby #5!), I made a quick video to show how I pair the foods and what fuels they are for those of you who are visual learners! I hope this helps you out:
MORE SNACK IDEAS:
I didn't mention some of the other very convenient foods at the store: Skinny Pop (THM E, but only in small portions. I usually grab the 100 calorie bags), pre-hard-boiled eggs, pre-grilled chicken, and pre-sliced veggie trays.
I also have a list of 31 more THM Snacks if you need some extra inspiration: 31 THM Snack Ideas
