Smart Snacks

Snacking, or eating small meals throughout the day, is crucial to keep your blood sugar level constant. If you find yourself feeling very hungry, your blood sugar levels have already dropped too low, which can cause you to overeat. Instead of sugary, starchy, and fat-laden treats, choose snacks that provide protein and fiber. Unlike carbohydrates, which the body burns quickly for fuel, protein and fiber provide slow-burning energy and help you feel full longer.[1]

Almonds, sunflower seeds, edamame, celery ribs with almond butter, low fat cottage cheese, hard boiled eggs, protein shakes and steamed vegetables all make great smart snacks. Don’t go hungry. Get smart.
