Healthy Snack Options in Under 5 Minutes

Choosing healthy snack options can be difficult when we are constantly surrounded by highly processed and packaged foods. Convenience foods are popular because they save time, but…

Collette Sinnott, RD, CPT

Hi there! I am a registered dietitian & certified personal trainer with a love of cooking and the outdoors! I created this blog to share my nutrition and fitness expertise and promote healthy lifestyles focused on disease prevention. I advocate for variety in food choices without restriction and encourage others to eat mostly nutrient-dense foods while including enjoyable foods. I am also passionate about fitness and recognize the benefit in moving a little each day!

  • Continuing #tacotuesday with some shrimp tacos at home. Threw some brown rice, beans, and spinach together with shrimp and added minced garlic, salsa, tapatio, cumin, chili powder, and a little salt for some great flavor! Topped with plain Greek yogurt and mozzarella cheese on whole wheat tortillas.
👉HINT: plain yogurt tastes surprisingly like sour cream which means you can get an extra dose of probiotics, protein, and calcium by making this simple swap!

  • I love #pesto so much that I've been putting it on everything: brown rice/sausage/veggie bowls, breakfast scrambles, and pizza!

Pesto is so easy to make and can be made so many different ways! Not to mention it's versatility and #positive nutrition profile, including unsaturated fats, #protein, #fiber, and many #vitamins and #minerals. The version I made here includes #walnuts + #sunflower seeds + #oorganics fresh herb #salad + #canola oil. A quick blend in my food processor was all it took to get a nice, smooth texture!

The basic #recipe includes:
🌰 Nuts/seeds
🌱 Greens
🥑 Oil
🧀 Cheese (optional)
🥄 Salt & pepper
  • Whipped up a batch of blueberry vinaigrette to pair with this strawberry, walnut, purple cabbage salad! Only thing missing is some goat cheese. Gettin in those #antioxidants #omega3s #vitamins #minerals 👌💪

  • My favorite #preworkout when I workout in the morning and don't have time for a full meal: #fruit + #water. Carbohydrates and fluid are all you need before exercise to give your body quick energy. Remember to fuel-up with some protein, carbs, and fluid #postworkout to replenish your glycogen stores, give your muscles the best opportunity to repair and grow, and rehydrate!
