Fit Snacks are meant to be convenient when you add a convenient snack to a nutritious raw food snack, what do you get? A nutrient dense treat that’s easy to grab-n-go. Keep reading to find out what we mean by ‘mini’ meal prep. As you read remember the smallest changes can make the biggest difference and abs are built in the kitchen is a phrase for good reason.

The Perfect Keto Snack
The Limón con Chile is best characterized as flavorful in its spice profile rather than a purely hot jerky or spicy jerky. Talk about a crave worthy high protein snack. The best part is, it is Sugar-Free, Carb-Free, Gluten-Free and Keto friendly.
Mini Meal Prep Guide Snack #1: Yes, we said Snack!
Do you have time to eat 5-6 meals a day? It has been proven to boost metabolism, but who has time for 6 small meals. We always have time for a snack that is easy to grab-n-go or eat right at your desk while you’re working.
Add People’s Choice Carne Seca Limon Con Chile to a small snack bowl of sliced Red and Orange Peppers. This makes for a beautiful and tasty snack. We even have a fun drink tip you can pair with this perfect snack mix. Water with lemon. Did you know by simply adding lemon to your water it becomes a probiotic?
Typically you may not even consider adding a cut up vegetable to your meal prep. You may think that the weekly veggie tray at work will take care of your veggie needs. Veggie trays do not always have nutrient dense options and may not come often enough. Take the benefits of daily Red Bell Peppers for instance:
- More than 200 percent of your Daily Vitamin C Intake
- Packed with Vitamin B6 and folate
- Support healthy night vision
- Packed with Antioxidants
When you pair veggie snacks with lean protein you have a nutrient dense snack. That is why we encourage jerky! The Carne Seca line by People’s choice is inspired by the diverse culinary tradition of Downtown Los Angeles and its many migrant groups. Taste the flavors of Northern Mexico and the Southwest region of the United States. Focused on bold flavors, fresh ingredients, and simple techniques, our Carne Seca Beef Jerky features all natural ingredients and a simplified process to showcase the deliciousness of traditional Carne Seca Beef Jerky. Initial kick of heat from cracked red pepper blends into the richness of guajillo chili powder, cracked black pepper, and sea salt; finishes with a touch of lemon twang. Our goal is to celebrate the natural meat flavor of the thick cut beef jerky.
Make it a Meal: Limon Con Chile + Tacos

Mini Meal Prep Guide Snack #2: Add this cheesy goodness to lunch without the guilt!

Meet American Body Builder and 2x Arnold Class Winner, Branch Warren. He is the Founder of Wicked Cutz.
Recover Like A Body Builder
Whether you’re building muscle or focusing on endurance training, recovery is the key to success. It requires protein, but not all protein is created equally. First of all, not all protein contains all of your essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks for new cells aka those gains you’ve been seeking. Every 24 hours after a tough workout this is the window you want to make sure you get the proper amount of protein and nutrients for that matter. In this time frame muscle is breaking down at a faster rate. If you don’t feed your body protein, rather than build muscle then the opposite will happen. Muscle breakdown occurs when we do not fuel our bodies properly.
Foods rich in protein are the key to recovery. Meat or foods containing meat have the highest bioavailable protein. Other foods with highly bioavailable protein are eggs, spirulina and milk or cheese. Bioavailable is just a fun way of saying the protein in a specific food is made available to your muscles much faster and more effectively.
Why Wicked Cutz is a cut above the rest

Need more energy at school? It just takes a few simple steps – and a snack – to get the energy you need. Our Nutritionist has the perfect tips to guide you to healthier habits or simply to get you back on track. This time of year life gets busier and the days get shorter. Whether it’s school, work or family it becomes easy to lose track of healthy habits we need to get dialed in for ourselves. Take a moment to really think about the time just before this busy period started up again. Exactly what were those healthy habits you were more focused on?
Here are a few things we do at Fit Snack to get refocused this time of year. It all starts with the most basic foods and snacks that are whole food based, with no added sugar and nutrient packed with fruits and veggies. Think about the 80/20 rule…every trainer you talk to (at least most of them) will tell you it’s 80/20 – 80% healthy eating and 20% staying active. That’s not just for looking your best, it’s for feeling your best. It’s important to get the fuel your body needs especially if you expect to be on your A+ game.
Here are a few tips from our Nutritionist and the perfect snack for the job.
- First, focus on whole foods.
- Eliminatefoods with ingredients you don’t recognize and added sugarsyou don’t need.
- Learn about ingredients and their health benefits-or to see if they have any.
The third point which emphasizes educating yourself on ingredients, is critical. If it looks unfamiliar it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s unhealthy. However, many unrecognizable ingredients indicate that a food is highly processed. These highly processed snacks are filled with preservatives and chemicals that do more harm than good.
Too busy to grab fresh produce to snack on or are you always on the go? No problem. We have the snack, smoothie and drink powder that will do the work for you.
We found the perfect every day snack for you. It’s full of vitamins straight from organic fruits and veggies. LYNQ drink powders. Love yourself no question (LYNQ). Finding healthy foods and snacks is an important part of self care. That’s why we included LYNQ in our Fit Snack box.
The highest quality nutrition comes from whole foods, but these foods are not always the most accessible or convenient. LYNQ just might be the missing link in your life. It’s not everyday you find a snack or drink mix that energizes your body by giving you the nutrients you need most.
Introducing the highest quality, healthy drink powders

-Anita Muniz, Fit Snack | Nutritionist & Personal Trainer
When searching for a healthy veggie based drink powder it is a challenge to find one without additives and preservatives. Even powdered mixed greens you find at the grocery store are often filled with ingredients we don’t recognize and junk we really do not need. Here’s one for ya! Just because it says green, does not mean it’s clean.Let that be your rule of thumb. Ingredients tell all, that’s why we knew when we found LYNQ they are the best drink powder we can put in your Fit Snack box.
