3 Easy, Healthy Snack Recipes

Who said snacking is bad? If you are an active person on the go it’s important not to deprive your body of food, you should actually be eating 5-6 times a day to keep your metabolism revved up! Below you will find three recommended snacks that are easy to prepare, healthy and delicious! Smoothies are quick and perfect for packing in a good amount of nutrients in one serving. In the Nadia Murdock Fit Smoothie Book I offer simple recipes that will tempt even those that are not fond of this treat.

Peanut Butter & Banana Lovin’

  • 1/2 banana 
  • 2 ice cubes 
  • 1 teaspoon of peanut butter powder 
  • 1 cup almond milk 
  • 1/4 cup of blackberries 
  • 1/4 cup of raspberries
  • Blend and serve 

Getting a serving of greens is something you should aim to do daily, think of always adding color to your plate. Spinach and kale (loaded with vitamins like vitamin K and C) are great with dinner but make an excellent snack too!

NMFIT Refreshing Spinach or Kale Salad

  • Handful of spinach or kale
  • Finely chopped red peppers
  • ½ a cucumber 
  • ½ a lemon (one lemon is optional)
  • Mix and serve 

Nuts are superfoods that will keep you full longer and rich in antioxidants!

DIY Trail Mix

(note: store bought trail mix tends to pack extra calories, create your own when you can! )

  • 20 Almonds
  • Handful of raisins 
  • Handful of sunflower seeds (pumpkin seeds or hemp seeds are great too)
  • You can add another handful of nuts like walnuts or cashews!

I’m Nadia Murdock, author, instructor and fitness coach and I am going to help you do it. Like you maybe know, I was once overweight, out of shape and had given up on myself.  I looked in the mirror one day and wondered how I had got to that point.  I wasn’t only unhealthy, I was unhappy.  My path to a personal and professional life rooted in health and wellness has not only taught me the skills I need to help you makeover and change your body on the outside, but also how to train your mind from the inside.
