Snacking is something that sabotages many people’s healthy eating efforts. They eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner but they forget to prepare healthy snacks. Then when they get hungry between meals, they reach for a calorie packed snack (such as candy, chocolate or a cookie) and undo all their good work. The good news is that healthy snacks are easy to put together and once you get used to preparing them, you can easily satisfy your appetite between meals without loading up on calories and unnatural ingredients.
There are lots of options when it comes to healthy snacking. Greek yoghurt, fruits, certain vegetables, nuts and seeds are all packed with health boosting nutrients and require no preparation, so you can just grab them and go first thing in the morning, then tuck in whenever you get hungry during the day. There are also other healthy snacks which do require a small amount of preparation but taste great.
