Snacking for Success
Snacking during the day can be a great way to fill in nutrient gaps, keep up energy levels and enjoy healthy options. Some people may think of processed and packaged foods when they hear “snacks.” However, snacking on nutritious options can be incredibly beneficial, no matter your nutrition goals. Here are three tips to snack successfully.
1. Pair a source of protein and fiber together for each snack. For snacks, examples of fiber-rich foods could be apples, bananas, carrots, celery, whole grain crackers or a whole wheat tortilla. Examples of high protein snack ideas could be Greek yogurt, low-fat cheese sticks, nuts, hummus or hard-boiled eggs.
2. Plan for your snack. Planning when you will have a snack helps decrease mindless eating and lets your brain and body know when they will receive food next.
3. Choose calorie-free beverages. Successful snacks satisfy us best when we are hydrated, so make sure you have some water, unsweetened tea, seltzer or other calorie-free drinks close by when snacking!
