Tuesday Tip: Pint Size Snack

greek yogurt parfait

Healthy and fresh on the go snacks are always a challenge. These days it’s even tougher because I’m trying to stay gluten-free during the week— anything goes on the weekends! I know, you can grab a Larabar, a piece of fruit or a handful of nuts as you zip out the door, but that’s not going cut it for this girl. Mama needs food.

Here’s my latest creation. As I divide time between my home and office this keeps me nourished and satisfied (it’s cute, too). When I’m making the girls’ lunches in the morning, I throw one of these little jars together for me.

I'm lovin' this brand of Greek yogurt- it is seriously creamy and delicious.

A pint size mason jar is the perfect portion size. I layer parfait style Greek yogurt (I’m currently obsessed with Greek Gods Yogurt), sliced almonds and dried currants. The almonds and currants pack a great punch of flavor and texture that works well with the creamy yogurt. I grab a rubber band collected from broccoli bunches and slide a small spoon in and I’m ready to go.

I buy the sliced almonds and the currants in the bulk bins at the grocery store.

Ready to go.

Selfishly, I’m posting this tip with hope that you will share some of your favorite on the go snacks with me.

Hollye, I feel less sluggish, don’t know if that is from the lack of gluten or the fact that my skinny jeans aren’t squeezing the life out of me anymore. 😉

Your snack is amazing because I was running out of the house this morning and made almost exactly the same snack. I included chopped apple and fresh blueberries and it was so delicious and very filling but I think you could add almost anything to this delicious snack.
I love greek yogurt. I have just started gluten free eating and am finding so many wonderful recipes and feeling more focused and energetic.
I love your blog.

Thank you, Pat! Please share if you discover some good, filling snacks. I’m always on the lookout for new ideas. I’m glad to hear you are finding more energy, I’ve found the same to be true.
