Atkins Snacks for the busy working mom

by jennifer11. December 2014 05:06

As you probably know by now, I've returned to work full-time outside of the home.

I know I've mentioned it once or twice.

I know I've also mentioned how challenging it can be to try to get into a routine where I am making a healthy breakfast, and lunch for myself.

One thing that's been super easy for me while following the Atkins40 plan is SNACKS!!

Like most moms I get a slump around 3pm. I really try not to drink caffeine that late in the day because I need to be in bed by 9pm (I get up at 4:30am) so having a little pick-me-up snack has been just what I've needed to push through my last few hours at work.

My FAVORITE snack is the Chocolate Covered Almonds!

They are SO good. And I feel like I am able to eat a treat that's GOOD for me too! We all know Almonds are a power food, and well, chocolate is a feel good food, so it's a win/win!!

And check out the nutrition content!

With only 1.5 net carbs, that's a drop in the bucket off my 40 daily alloted carbs!

So...I've been trying to follow the plan, and this is the start of my 4th week. In 3 weeks I've lost 6 pounds. I'm really quite happy with that. 1.5-2 pounds per week is what the experts recommend, and I'm right there!

And I survived Thanksgiving, and with Christmas right around the corner I feel confident and in control!

How are you doing with your holiday snacking?
