Happy Monday! Today I’ve vowed that it’s a new month full of new doors and new perspective. The last few months for me I feel like I’ve been pouring all my heart, soul, and energy into others, and it’s time I’ve started putting some of that effort back into myself. The days seem too short and a good night’s sleep has seemed even shorter, and because of that I’ve been emotionally and physically exhausted. It’s not easy being a single mama to a toddler, but at the end of the day I just keep doing the best that I can given my circumstances and remember that there’s always a ray of light at the end of a tunnel 🙂

That being said, I often get asked what I eat throughout the day to stay energized while chasing around a little monster/what keeps me fit. New snack ideas can be tough when you get into a “boring” routine, so my trick is to always change it up week by week and try to prep some snacks so they’re “fast food,” and I have no excuse to grab dirty things 😉 #eatingcleanfordirtydessert has always been my novel! I find if I eat well 90% of the time, that I can splurge on dessert, wine, and champs without a huge sacrifice to my “normal.”

I hope this list of snack ideas helps you find some new ideas, cut back on some calories, or just add some spice into your clean eating life…and most of them are mama, toddler, and/or significant other approved!
