Trim Healthy Mama Snack Ideas

Beginning the {that's an affiliate link -->} Trim Healthy Mama journey can be a bit daunting with some of those new ingredients that you're just not so sure about. But, it is possible to follow the plan without buying a whole new cupboard full of strange ingredients. While having some of those new items can be handy (especially if you have a sweet tooth!) you can jump right in without them.

With this handy list of snacks, you can have your munchies and crunchies and still be on plan. I've divided the list into the different fuel sources - Fuel Pull, Satisfying, and Energizing.

Note: You should refer to the book for more information about the fuel sources and specifics about full-fat or low-fat ingredients for each source.
