Okay, so my snacks may not always look that pretty but it doesn’t make them any less important. Here’s just a few reasons I’m a huge fan of snacks:

  • It’s important to keep your blood sugar stable. With PCOS, it’s even more important to keep your blood sugar stable, so having snacks handy is key!
  • I never want “hunger” to be an excuse to not work out.

And here’s some healthy snack ideas I always have on hand:

  • Red Bell Pepper Sliced (sprinkle with a little salt if you like)
  • Carrot Sticks with guacamole
  • Nick’s Sticks — Grass fed beef and free range turkey sticks
  • Almonds
  • Almond Butter — Just a spoonful to hold me over
  • Frozen Raspberries — this is my go-to if I’m wanting something sweet. I love squeezing lemon juice on top. Extra boost of vitamin C!
  • Kale Salad (if I’m not on-the-go)
  • Cold Pressed Juice
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • FRUIT (although I only eat 1 per day…sugar!)
  • Goji berry, cacao, and almond trail mix
  • Homemade paleo cookies — I bring these to the office and a few dozen are usually devoured by the team in less than a day
