Snacks can (and often should) be a part of a healthy meal plan. Organized snacks can help prevent overeating at the next meal and/or picking on food in between meals.
Here are some tips to add snacks to your day in a healthy way:
🍌 Plan your snacks ahead of time. Put together the snacks for the day in the morning or evening when you aren’t hungry so you can make a mindful decision. 🍌 Have scheduled snack times to prevent grazing all day and keeping mindfulness. 🍌 Combine a complex carbohydrate along with a protein or fat to promote satiety.
Some easy to prepare snack examples:
🥝 Apple with peanut butter 🥝 Greek yogurt with fruit and sunflower seeds 🥝 Carrots with Hummus 🥝 Whole grain crackers with cheese 🥝 Handful of nuts and fruit 🥝 ½ Almond butter sandwich on whole grain bread 🥝 Hard boiled egg and fruit 🥝 1/2 an avocado with salt/pepper
