I'm working hard on learning what a cheat meal really is. This is NOT a cheat meal for me
I do not workout full time - wouldn't that be cool? Cheat meals for me are really like cheat snacks. I may have a fancy coffee, a pumpkin something (they are ALL good), or a "glass" of wine. So, for my everyday food I'm looking for stuff that tastes good, but also meets my goals of maintaining strength and energy and loosing fat.
|Cheat Snack - but the feeling is spot on|
Here are some things I have found that I love to eat during the day, don't feel or taste like diet food, and meet my needs.
Ostrim Sticks. Love them. Love all the flavors. They are such a good purse snack, throw in your bag snack, keep in a desk drawer snack. I have a membership at GNC (I know, FANCY) and I buy them by the box.
Another good snack is an AMRAP bar. These I eat after a big workout or if I NEED some serious energy. They are delicious. The almond and honey one is my fav. SOOOOOO good. My husband voted that one his fav too. I might have just drooled a little......

Not as exciting, but a good standby is my loyal green buddy. I try and eat this guy daily.
|you know where to get this guy|
Also - my friend the egg. Loyal. Comes in his own package. Easy traveler. I do love a pickled egg too - my boy @illphill500 makes the best.......
What if you want something crunchy? Glad you asked. I'm obsessed. They are SO good.
I am not a nutritionist. I'm just a chick that has finally found a few snacks that work for what my goals are. Let me know if I'm missing some awesome snacks out there!
