Time to empty your treat drawer, or treat cupboards at home (we don’t keep treats at home, so it’s easy there). As I said, I’m much more tempted at work to eat something that isn’t the most nutritious so I need to be readily prepared for when hunger strikes.
When looking for a good snack to help keep you on track, you mainly want to look for foods that will keep you feeling satisfied until the next time that you eat. You know, so you won’t go overboard at your next meal.
Fruit: Apples, berries, peaches, or unsweetened dried mango. Don’t go hog wild with this because fruits still contain a lot of sugar. Limit yourself to 1-2 pieces a day.
Handful of trail mix you made yourself. I love creating my own trail mix from Bulk Barn. I only stock up when they have a $3 off coupon online and buy in bulk. Yes, those are m&ms. Moderation people.
Tuna: So healthy but limit your intake on tuna due to its high mercury content. Below I’ve added bell peppers, carrots, celery and pecans to the tuna.
Kind bars. I only grab one of these when I’m not prepared or extra hungry that day for a snack. These are healthy and pretty delicious. Just look at the back of the package for ingredients and nutritional value.
Fresh vegetables: Carrots, bell peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes. Eat as much of it as you want. Do not limit yourself.
If you fill yourself up with these snacks in between your meals, you’re going to notice a huge difference in feeling satisfied, less bloated and overall making better choices for your next meals.
