“Snacking” is healthy. It allows us to avoid overeating (i.e., not starve between meals), allows us to have a small portion to curb our cravings… there are many good things about snacking. However, snacking gets a bad wrap. Most snack foods are easily accessible and not necessarily healthy. We also have to acknowledge the fact that we are snacking, not eating a meal. The portion size should be small enough to not ruin your next meal and not overtake your calorie count for the day. Here are some ideas for healthy snacks so that you can enjoy your snacking instead of feeling guilty. Use it as a jumping off point and get creatively healthy with your snacks !
Preserved meats (highly processed meats aren’t healthy, but small quantities can be useful for curbing your appetite)
Tea (especially green tea)
Organic fruit and nut bars (i.e., Larabar brand)
