Every week, 'Fit Chicks' will highlight attire, tips, and (of course!) sneakers that make it perfect for you to get your sweat on in style. We’ll also hip you to some of our favorite weekend hang sessions and interactions with like-minded ladies because, we love showing love!
The holiday season usually means parties, family, and food. While we’re all down for some much needed family and friend time, we’re not so interested in the post-holiday cravings most of us (raise your hands, y’all) get as a result of getting a little lax with the eating habits. As you wean yourself off of Christmas goodies (my mother made cookies that I am avoiding LIKE THE PLAGUE) it helps to attack some of those cravings with snacks that are healthy and delicious and NOT that plate of cookies.
Ahead, find a few relatively easy snack options that will keep you satisfied without reaching for the chips, candy, and those holiday leftovers.
If you've never had roasted chickpeas, you're missing out. All you need is a can of garbanzo beans, a little seasoning, and viola! Brit and I tried these last year when we embarked upon the PopSugar Clean Eating Challenge and they were so good that I still make them. If this is your first time, try this recipe courtesty of ThisGrandmaIsFun.
Bars are a bit dangerous because they typically pack in a ton of sugar but, KIND is a pretty safe bet when it comes to grab-and-go eats. KIND offers heart-healthy fats, as well as satiating protein and fiber so you can get the most out of your snack time + satisfy that sweet tooth.
Turkey Roll Ups
Combining apples with turkey, these Turkey Roll-Ups are super yummy and ready in seconds. "This is the perfect quick and easy snack because the fiber from the apples and the protein in the turkey are sure to keep you full for hours," says Kelli Shallal, M.P.H., R.D., C.P.T., blogger at Hungry Hobby. "Apples are a crunchy, delicious jewel of the fall that are rich in fiber and nutrients."
