This list of Clean Eating 300 Calorie Snacks is perfect to pin up on your fridge for quick reference!
I have to admit that this list was entirely a selfish endeavor.
I’ve been struggling lately with a little bit of boredom in the kitchen. While I love to cook, every once in a while I hit a creative brick wall with the pots and pans. Kind of like writer’s block, only worse because if I don’t figure out what to cook, I don’t eat clean foods.
So I sat down and brain stormed a list that I thought you guys might find helpful as well. A list of snacks (or meals) that are around 300 calories. Some of them are exactly 300 calories and some of them are slightly over or slightly under. But not by much.
If you have any ideas to add to this list, I’m all ears! Well, actually I’m all eyes. But you get the idea.
CLEAN EATING 300 CALORIE SNACKS:
- 2 full-fat mozzarella cheese sticks and 1/4 cup almonds
- 2 full-fat mozzarella cheese stick and 2 cups chopped apple
