It’s so easy for me to inhale everything in sight after a run – as many calories as I eat the rest of the day combined if I’m not careful. But after reading a Runner’s World article on weight loss a while back (which I now can’t seem to find, sorry), I’ve been enforcing a 200-calorie limit on postrun snacks.
Here are my favorites as of late:
A 70-calorie Boca original vegan veggie burger with a 90-calorie Slimwich and 1 T. of salsa con queso (22 calories).
- ½ cup oatmeal (73 calories) with 1 T. of peanut butter (95 calories), ¼ cup skim milk (20 calories) and a couple of strawberries (4 calories each per medium berry).
- Two 5.3-ounce containers of 80-calorie Dannon Light & Fit Greek yogurt. (Feels so decadent to eat two of these babies, and still just 160 calories.)
- A “python sandwich” – a boiled egg (70 calories) on two slices of Healthy Goodness bread (35 calories each) with 1 T. of salsa con queso. (I call it that because of the large lump in the middle.)
- An entire 1-pint container of raspberries, dripping wet after a good rinsing. So refreshing, and you can eat the whole thing for 164 calories!
