Stop Impulsive Eating with New Food Finds

Have you ever gotten so hungry, you black out? Me neither, but I have gotten so hungry that when I am finally in front of food, I eat like a maniac and don't even recall what I've stuffed in my face ... kind've like a blackout. Oops ....

Ya, well, it's important that you learn how to prepare yourself for those unexpected traffic jams, never-ending corporate meetings, snail-like crawling carpool lines and any other time you find yourself in a bind. If you don't, you could be snacking on one bite-sized snickers too many, OR losing track of the mindless snacks that can keep you from meeting your nutritional goals (and cause you to stop losing fat).

Below, you'll find some of my recent favorite ways to stay prepared and stocked for any long haul. These new grocery finds are great purse-stuffers or gym bag accomplices.

Starkist Tuna Packets
Tuna fish packets have always been a staple in my nutrition routine. (Yep, I'm the stinky one.) I'd rather be stinky and skinny then fat, though. Get over the fish thing, friends. These packets are so convenient and packed with lean protein.
Find them at your local grocery store.

FlatOut Wraps
Use these wraps for making individual pizzas, sandwich substitutes, tortilla substitutes, or cut it apart and bake it in the oven like chips. Now, you can find these with even more protein if you have a hard time getting in your protein macros.
Find them at your local grocery store.

OhYeah Victory Bars
Quest bars have a new partner in crime. Not really, but these Victory bars are just as scrumptious. My favorite kind is the chocolate chip cookie dough (duh).
Find them online at Vitacost.com or at HealthKick in Coppell.

GreatValue Stevia-Sweetened Packets
Walmart made my day with this one. They come in tons of flavors, and you don't have to feel guilty about ingesting artificial sweeteners or chemicals. Dump that powder in your water bottle and stay hydrated all day.
Find them at Walmart.

Sweet Spreads Cashew Butter
This nut butter has me oohing and ahhing every time I eat it. For some reason, I've found that one tablespoon of Sweet Spreads satisfies me. My husband keeps it in his lunch bag and eats it on a rice cake, banana or with an apple almost every day. It's the good kind of fat.
Find them at HealthKick in Coppell or their website online.

Quest Chips
One of the most common complaints from my clients is that they can't squash their craving for something salty like crackers or chips. Quest Chips give you the crunch factor you're looking for with no weird ingredients and 20 g protein. With flavors like Sour Cream & Cheddar, Barbecue and Salt & Vinegar, you can have it all. It's a no brainer!
Find them online at Vitacost.com or at HealthKick in Coppell.

Mori-Nu Tofu
Blend this chunk of tofu up with a blender or mash it with a big spoon. Add stevia, sugar-free instant pudding, cocoa powder, greek yogurt, fruit, or basically anything you want to flavor it with. Once you get it to be pudding-like, you can keep it in your fridge (in a mason jar or a recycled salsa jar) for an easy on-the-go snack.
Find them online at Vitacost.com or at your nearest grocery store in the refrigerated section.

Dave's Killer Bread
I love that they sell this at Sam's Club. There's nothing worse than finding something really yummy and healthy but you have to sacrifice a tank of gas and pay like $30 to get it. None of that here, my friends. You can find this organic, whole grain-stuffed bread in a two-pack at Sam's. It's not carb-free, but it's a great source of fiber, energy and no weird ingredients.
Find them at Sam's Club.
