Week 19: Snack Responsibly Challenge:
Snacks have such a bad reputation… and for a good reason considering what MOST people consider a snack!
Between the stops at the vending machine and the grab-and-go at the gas station- most people are grabbing whatever is fast, sugary, and convenient.
However- if you’re doing it right, snacks can be really great for keeping energy levels high, maintaining blood sugar, helping to nourish your body, and of course if you have kids- keeps them happy J
Choose snacks that COUNT… that are high in protein, healthy fats, and fiber to help you stay full longer and won’t spike your blood sugar.
Just because they are healthy, doesn’t mean they won’t taste great!
Here’s a list of 53 healthy snack ideas that will satisfy even the toughest of taste buds: paleogrubs.com/healthy-snacks
- ALWAYS listen to your body
- Keep your daily caloric intake in mind
- Only eat when you’re hungry
- Plan your snacks in advance
- Always have healthy snack options available
I know it’s hard to make smart decisions when your stomach is growling…that’s exactly why it’s SO IMPORTANT to make sure you’ve always got healthy snacks on hand.
One of my fav go-to snacks is an apple with a little almond butter. Simple, easy to make, tastes great, and will boost your energy while nourishing your body.
