Snack Right

Rate This

If you are snacking in between meals because you are truly hungry and/or you need the energy, then that is a positive reason to snack. Make healthy choices and watch the calorie intake. If you're snacking because of stress or boredom, then this is a negative reason to snack and should be avoided. Before you choose to snack, think about why you are doing it and if it is truly necessary. Snacking is not bad if it's done for the right reasons.

I agree! I usually have at least 3 or 4 snacks a day. It prevents me from feeling starved at meal times which leads to overeating. Your portions will be more controlled if you have healthy snacks throughout the day. A few of my favorites include carrots with hummus, frozen grapes, edamame, rice cakes with salsa, avocado with crackers, apples or granola.
