Healthy snacks are an important part of the Ballet Beautiful eating principles. It is important to feed your body the right foods on a regular basis to maintain your energy and keep your metabolism humming! You never want to let yourself get too hungry because that can trigger cravings and lead to overeating.
Our BB trainers are constantly running around the city to train clients, attend dance classes, and go to auditions, so having nutritious snacks that keep them energized and feeling good is a must. We asked them to share their favorites with us for some snack inspiration! Pick the ones that look good to you and have them on hand to keep you feeling energized throughout your day and to help you power through your Ballet Beautiful workouts!

Danielle: I make myself a super smoothie nearly every day (mixed berries, orange juice, 1 banana, chia seeds, almond butter, coconut oil, and mint). The combination of healthy fats, antioxidants, and protein keeps me going for hours.
Yuki: I love having overnight soaked oatmeal and chia seeds. I like making it with coconut or almond milk!
Nicholas: When I’m on the run, which is pretty much everyday for me, I rely a lot on snacks – like a handful of raw almonds or cashews, apples, bananas or plain greek yogurt with a bit of honey.
Brittany: Almonds! I always keep some on hand.
Katelyn: I live on Kind bars! Right now my favorite is the Maple Glazed Pecan and Sea Salt. It is slightly sweet, but the salt makes it so tasty!
Lucy: If I have time in the morning I love to make a hearty snack of Greek yogurt with fresh berries, honey, pomegranate seeds, granola, and ground flaxseed.
Dioni: Lots of fruit, nuts and all natural smoothies and juices.
Nancy: Raw Almonds.
Alexandra: Fage Greek yogurt with honey and almonds!
Jackie: I love avocado! You can add it to so many meals or smoothies to give it that extra flavor and texture.
