Snack Time

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Snacking can be a healthy habit if you choose the right items and eat the right balance of foods for snacks to keep your energy level up. Unfortunately, many times we wait until we get the “snack attack,” and don’t choose as wisely as we should.  It’s not unusual to get hungry between meals–particularly if you have a long stretch in between.  The key is planning ahead to make sure you have some healthy foods available, and ideally, you should combine some protein with a little carbohydrate to fill you up and keep you going. A protein-enriched beverage, a piece of string cheese and a piece of fruit, or a small carton of yogurt with a few low-fat crackers should do the trick, or try any of these snack ideas – all under 100 calories:
