Snack Options and Healthy Ideas

For some, snacks are a great way to curb hunger between meals or for an extra kick of energy on a busy day. But since we often snack without really thinking about it and, a lot of time, the easiest grab-and-go snacks aren’t the healthiest, they can easily add up in calories. A helpful strategy can be to set a specific target or range of calories you want to keep your snack portion to.

If you’re looking to avoid the additional calories a lot of popular store-bought options contain, a better choice to curb your hunger between meals would be to enjoy foods like vegetables, nuts and other protein-rich options instead. You could try some cottage cheese with fruit, air-popped popcorn, a handful of nuts, or vegetables sticks with hummus. If you have a few additional calories to spare, you could opt for some Greek yogurt with fruit and honey, whole grain toast with peanut butter, some low-calorie cheese options, or a hard-boiled egg.

All in all, the key to mindful snacking is portion control. Enjoy your in-between meals with an eye on what and why you’re eating, and you’ll definitely be on the right track. What are some creative snack ideas you have planned for the week?
