My 4 o’clock Kitchen Graze & Stuff!

Every day at 4 o’clock I get home from work and am so hungry that I want to shovel all of my pantry and fridge in my belly! The problem is that at 4 o’clock my brain is tired from making decisions all day and therefore my snacking decisions usually suffer.  So I thought I would make it easy by creating a list of great snack choices to avoid the ‘Kitchen Graze & Stuff’!

Healthy Low Calorie Snacks:

  • 1-2 cups of blueberries or other berries
  • veggies (steamed or raw) and hummus
  • cheese stick or single serving of cottage cheese
  • 100 calorie popcorn
  • small serving of nuts
  • small yogurt (Greek or regular)
  • granola bar (read the label first, not too much sugar)
  • apple or another piece of whole fruit
  • hard-boiled egg
  • sliced tomatoes, feta cheese and olive oil
  • A Vitamuffin
  • edamame
  • steal cut or instant oatmeal
  • shrimp cocktail
  • sliced turkey
  • a small glass of white or chocolate milk

All of these choices taste great & will not ruin your dinner or your waistline!


About strengthinmoms

I am the proud mom of two beautiful boys.  During my first pregnancy I exercised somewhat but didn’t know how to adjust to my changing body.  Eventually I just stopped and let my pregnancy take over because I thought the aches and pains were telling me to stop.  When I found out I was pregnant with my second child, I was told I needed to stop teaching cardio kickboxing and go easy during bootcamp.  I was very frustrated and confused.  I was pregnant, not injured?!  So I did my research and found out that I was right - I CAN do all of the things I was doing!  I just needed to be in tune with my body and listen to it.  I maintained my fitness levels, my core and total body strength and my relaxed state of mind.  I knew that being a mom did not mean letting go of who I am - a Strong and Fit Woman.  I deserved an hour a day to focus on my mind & body and ultimately my baby and family as well. * My passion in life is to help moms get fit and maintain their strength throughout their pregnancy and beyond.  * I am the owner of Strength in Moms - Prenatal & Postpartum Personal Training in Atlanta, GA
