As you review these snack ideas, I challenge you (if you don’t do this already), to forecast your meals and snacks this week.

Print off this helpful meal-planning template:


You can find me doing this every Sunday afternoon, and hopefully, as a family, having the kids write the meal ideas on their little dry-erase board in the kitchen. This meal plan does not and should not be a black-and-white plan, it’s a draft to help you along with decision fatigue and planning as the week moves along.

As for snacks, while minimizing/avoiding them can have a number of benefits, including weight loss, better blood sugar control, and lower insulin levels, there are occasions when our meals are greater than 4-6 hours apart and a snack is beneficial.

On busy days, I will grab one of my fat-bombs to carry me over until dinner.

They are such a treat and require only a fraction of a dose of insulin. Try them out and let me know what you think. Recipe to Kelly’s Fat Bombs (GF, DF, Paleo).
