Snack on this…

Sure go ahead and have a snack..  Snacks can actually help you lose weight…. if you CHOOSE the right foods.

  • Keep Snacks to 100/ 200 calories – If you go over board.. lighten up at  your next meal.
  • Snacks should be nutrient rich foods like fruits and veggies – snack time is a good time to get in your recommended daily requirement.
  • Plan snacks in advance – keep healthy (non fridge )  goodies on hand.   In the car, in your desk, even in your handbag or briefcase.
  • Add a little protein  to your snack –  when you add protein to your snack  it helps to reduce hunger and increase fullness.. win / win.

Some of my favorite snacking suggestions:

  • A handful of almonds
  • Apples and pnut butter sandwich
  • Cottage cheese and fresh fruit slices
  • Hummus and carrots
  • Egg whites and Hummus
  • Turkey breast rolls with mustard

Create a great day !
