Ask Dr. Doni: Healthy snack ideas?

Doni With BarnI think of snacks as mini-meals. Otherwise you risk having your snacks be a carbohydrate fix that sets you off on a blood sugar roller coaster. So instead, think protein, along with healthy fats and fiber!

  • a couple slices of hormone-free turkey rolled around an 1/8th of an avocado
  • a few bites of left over wild salmon with arugula or sauteed greens (kale, chard)
  • a Larabar (I like cherry pie flavor)
  • Two Mom’s in the Raw berry granola bars
  • a 4-ounce protein shake
  • organic nuts with dried cranberries
  • frozen, organic berries with gluten-free muesli (with nuts and seeds) and a dollop of coconut milk yogurt
  • a few kale chips with cashews
