I’ve been referred to as a “Crunchy Mom” and after looking it up, I guess I can agree with that in some ways. I am always looking to improve myself, do things naturally, and willing to do the hard work to improve my life and encourage others to do the same. I can get pretty grumpy if I don’t keep my blood sugar stable, so I work to eat small meals or snacks about every two to three hours. The benefits are that this speeds up my metabolism, keeps me in the “happy zone” (when I do it!) and also keeps me preparing meals and having fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and cheese around for my family. Win, win!
Some people have a hard time thinking about what they can quickly grab on the go so here are some of my favorite ideas:
An apple and a cheese stick
Celery and peanut butter
A handful of almonds
The pre-made Atkins shakes I can put in the fridge
A protein bar
A slick of turkey and cheese
Cottage cheese and tomatoes
A hard boiled egg
So there you go! If you need some quick ideas, just grab a bite from this list every 2-3 hours and keep your blood sugar stable. My son’s a Type 1 Diabetic so this mode of eating has really helped him stabilize, too. We just help him count the carbs if there are any involved so that he can dose the right amount of insulin.
Enjoy doing the small changes that get you the big results in your life!
