Snack on Almonds, Raisins or Dried Cranberries

 

 

Choosing the right snacks helps the body in between meals

Contrary to popular belief, snacking can be part of a healthful eating plan. Choosing snacks wisely, such as a few almonds and dried fruit, can help fuel your body between meals, give you an energy boost, and add to your total intake of essential nutrients for the day. Snacking can also help to take the edge off hunger between meals.

The longer you wait between meals, the more you tend to eat at the next meal. Leaving only about three to four hours between meals is an ideal amount of time to keep blood sugar levels in control. The key to smart snacking is the type and amounts of food that you choose.

Mindless snacking or nibbling on high-fat, high-calorie foods can lead to trouble in the form of unwanted and empty calories and weight gain.
