Must-Have Snack List to Fuel Your Writing

Disclaimer: I’m not a nutritionist, dietician, health coach, or doctor (and I don’t play them on TV.)

That being said…

A writer’s gotta EAT.

Writing needs major brain fuel – and without a snack PLAN I either much mindlessly on chips OR wait until my stomach is growling SO LOUD I can’t even think.

Friend, NEITHER is a good option.

The best snacks have:

  • Protein
  • Carb
  • Healthy fat

AND can be enjoyed at your desk – so you don’t have to STOP writing.

Just before my wedding I hired a GREAT health coach, Kristen Nolan, to help get me into shape – not drop pounds or fit into the dress – but because my mind and body were 100% out of sync. I felt sluggish in both mind AND body.

She helped me get back on track, figure out food pairings that worked for me, and exercises that weren’t crazy (but got great results.)

Unfortunately, Kristen is no longer working in the coaching space (and I’ve yet to find a sane, fun coach to recommend.) BUT I do have a copy of her 31 High Energy Snacks list from 2015 that I STILL munch off of today!

Get The List – 31 High Energy Snacks

Please note that none of the links will from the list to her website work; that doesn’t mean the information isn’t a good starting point!

And to this DAY when I have a really well-balanced snack, I’ll snap a pic and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #KristenApproved (She got me to give up eating nothing my Oreos as a “snack”!)

Snack on my writer friend!



P.S. It’s one thing to START writing your book, it’s another to CONTINUE when life gets busy. That’s why I created my PROVEN course, “Finally Write Your Book” AND designed it to be completed in cracks of time – about 15 minutes a day – to develop a writing habit that will last a lifetime.

AND you have lifetime access to the course – so you can do it at your own pace, return to lessons again and again, AND still get support from me in a monthly Q&A call AND a student’s only Facebook group.

PLUS I’ve filled it with easy-to-digest tips about writing your book – including tips around creativity, energy management, tools you need to write your book, and more!

Doors open later this month for Finally Write Your Book – watch for the email OR get on the waitlist here.
