Staying on track with new routines isn't easy. Some not-so-great habits are just a little trickier to kick than others. For instance, my refusal to turn down a cupcake instantly comes to mind. We have our weaknesses and chocolate is easily mine. So, while I make the effort to keep things on the healthier side as I continue to track my activity with the Withings Steel watchI came up with 7 healthy snacks to keep me on track and motivated.

If you missed my first Withings Steel post, you have to check out this stylish, you’d-never-know-it’s-an-activity-tracker watch. Basically, it syncs up by Bluetooth on the Health Mate app to track your daily activity. Whether you're running, swimming, or getting your heart racing with a dance or Zumba class every morning, it is counting every calorie, step, and time. You can even sync it up to other Withings products like the Body Cardio scale and track your progress.

Go ahead and set goals for yourself on the app to see how many steps you can get in before the day ends or see how many calories that run actually burned. It's entirely up to you and how you want to use it for your lifestyle needs. I personally have been using it to track my daily steps and distance travelled, which is surprisingly a lot higher than I initially thought. Win and win.

As for snacking, I chose 7 super simple and delicious snacks that are good enough to feel like an indulgence but REALLY are actually quite helpful for your efforts to stay healthy.  


 - Apple Slices + Nut Butter - 
Slice up some apples, spread on the nut butter of your choice and sprinkle on some crunchy extras like sunflower seeds, chocolate chips (a few high-cacao content chocolate chips is way better than a piece of cake), and/or raisins. Get creative with your additions!
 -Smoothie Bowl-
Blend up some yogurt and fruit and serve in a bowl with granola, chia seeds and more fruit (click the title above for full recipe).
-Avocado Toast-
 It's probably one of the easiest snacks to make, all you need is an avocado and the toast of your choice. I highly recommend sprinkling crushed red peppers but you can basically add whatever you want to top it.  

Slice up an eggplant or zucchini, toss in panko and bake for an easy 'fry' alternative. (Click title above for full recipe)

Pasta and the veggies of your choice tossed in oil, vinegar, and the spices of your choice. Make ahead and eat anytime. (Click title for full recipe)

Lunch, Dinner, Snack, or on-the-go these are surprisingly addicting and only take a few ingredients to create. (Click title for full recipe)

Craving an ice cream sundae? This is a great alternative and hits the spot when the sweet tooth calls around 3pm. Go ahead, indulge in a few chocolate chips.
