7 Zone Diet Snacks

If there’s one thing I love in this world, it’s FOOD!! When I was in high school, some of my friends would joke around and call me the ‘garbage disposal’ because I would eat my lunch and all of my friends’ lunch leftovers. I didn’t care too much, though because I loved food, food was delicious, their food would just be thrown away anyway unless I ate it, and I could kick their butts in a 400m race any day 😉

While I love food like I crazy person, I also have the tendency to get so focused on the different things that I’m doing that I don’t necessarily want to stop just to make myself a snack. Then before I know it, I’m hangry, and it’s just a dangerous situation for everybody. That’s why it’s important for me to always have some simple, healthy snacks on hand. It’s for the safety of everyone around me, really. Snacks save lives.

Lately, my fix has been the Zone Diet (want to know more about the Zone Diet? Check out this Introduction). That’s why these Zone Diet snacks are precisely measured and zoned out for 1- or 2-block snacks, for the perfect balance of proteins, carbs, and good fats. But, if you aren’t doing the Zone Diet, no worries! These snacks will still work great for keeping you satisfied during the day and giving you that delicious kick of energy you need without killing your eating habits. PLUS, these snacks are all super quick to make and don’t require a lot of brain power or dishes to complete, so it’s a total win-win-win!
