One of my favorite parts of the portion control nutrition plan is that you can create as many mix and match options as you want. You will never get bored because there are just so many 21 day fix snack ideas and recipes that you can try out! The options are endless. However, this can be a bit overwhelming for people who are just starting out on the program. While there is a really long food list for the 21 day fix program, it can be hard to know how to combine these items to make a healthy snack or meal! Sometimes you might find yourself staring into the fridge with your stomach rumbling, wondering what exactly you can eat!
I decided to create this list of 21 day fix snacks as a go-to for when you want some no nonsense and simple snacks to eat. The following list is a chart set up of snack combinations you can enjoy and the container amount each snack contains. I’ve categorized the list by the type of snack you might be craving – whether that be sweet or savory!
|Snack Idea||Green |
|Apple Slices or Banana with peanut butter||1||2|
|Cottage Cheese with Strawberries (or any berry variation)||1||1|
|Greek Yogurt and Blueberries||1||1|
|Grapes and Cheese||1||1|
|Chocolate Protein Powder Shake with Berries||1||1|
|Almonds and Cherries||1||1|
|Cheese, Olives and Crackers||1||1||1|
|Carrot & Celery Sticks with Greek Yogurt Dip||1||1/2|
|Slice of Toast with Tomato Slices, Drizzled Oil and Salt||1||1||1|
|Crackers and Hummus||1||1|
|Baked Tortilla Chips and Guacamole||1||1|
|Turkey or Ham slices wrapped with cheese, pickle and a side of carrots||1||1||1|
|Goat's cheese over sliced tomatoes sprinkled with black pepper||1||1|
|Cucumber slices dipped in sugar-free salsa and plain Greek yogurt||1||1|
The snack chart above is great for quick on-the-go snacks. If you want to make something a little bit more creative, you might enjoy some of the snacks in my recipe collection! They only require a tiny bit of preparation but include some great ideas for when you want to entertain or have something a bit more fun to eat!
Note: Some of my snack ideas include the use of protein powder. If you are using Shakeology, one scoop = 1 red container. Personally, I use 100% whey protein powder and one 30-35 gram scoop equals 1 red container.
21 Day Fix Snack Hacks:
1 – How to Eat LOTS of Peanut Butter Guilt-Free
Depending on which calorie bracket you are, you’ll only get between 2-6 teaspoons of oils or nut butters per day. If you happen to be a Peanut Butter fiend like me, this just simply won’t cut it.
- With the 1200-1499 calorie bracket, you can have two teaspoons of Peanut Butter
- With the 1500-1799 calorie bracket, you can have four teaspoons of Peanut Butter per day
Having just one or two teaspoons of Peanut butter is like listening to the first 5 seconds of your favorite song before someone switches the station. Luckily, I discovered PB2 powdered peanut butter which is an absolute God send.
There are between 60-70 calories in two TEASPOONS of Peanut Butter.
With PB2, you can have two TABLESPOONS for only 45 calories! Which means you could even have three tablespoons if you wanted and still be following the guidelines for the 1200-1499 calorie bracket. If you’re following a higher bracket, you can have even more!
All you do is mix two tablespoons of powdered peanut butter with 1 tablespoon of water and voila! Ready to spread on celery sticks, whole wheat crackers or pair with a crisp red apple!
2 – Coffee Creamer that is Calorie and Sugar-Free
Milk isn’t actually listed anywhere on the 21 day fix food list, but technically it should be under proteins. But it’s better to have yogurt and meat/fish where possible because you won’t be getting many calories/protein from just a red container of milk. I will splash some skim milk in my coffee in the mornings if I have no other option, but it isn’t the same as coffee cream (which I absolutely love).
But while I was visiting a friend, she introduced me to Walden Farms line of sugar-free, calorie-free and fat-free cream. Literally, there are no bad ingredients in these creamers that would affect your weight loss progress. They come in a variety of flavors like Sweet Cream, Mocha and French Vanilla.
3 – Soda, Pop and Fizzy Drinks Fix
If you are a former Coca Cola addict, you’ll know how sometimes you can’t just shake the craving for a crisp cold carbonated drink. But not only are sodas (especially diet ones) packed with artificial flavors and chemicals, but diet soda will actually make you crave sugar MORE than if you had a regular Coke. I never deny myself a carbonated beverage, but I’ll drink sparkling water instead! Take any type of unsweetened sparkling water and mix it with natural lemon juice and Stevia for a sparkling lemonade that is guilt-free!
