We all get hungry between meals. A good way to snack in a healthy way is to combine a lean protein and a fiber food.
This type of snack will help you feel full and satisfied and is packed full of nutrients. Unlike sugar based foods or caffeine, they do not cause a blood sugar spike, which soon makes you feel hungry all over again and contain empty calories without any nutritional benefits.
Another benefit of eating healthy snacks is you don't go into your next meal starving, which leads to poor choices and overeating.
Here are some examples:
- Peanut butter and apple
- Cottage cheese and pineapple
- An orange and almonds
- String cheese and carrot sticks
- A banana and yogurt
If you want more ideas just Google the phrase "healthy snacks."
Once you get used to reaching for these healthy alternatives you will notice you feel better, both mentally and physically, and you will begin to shed weight.
