Snacking is great. It’s generally a hold over between one of the three main meals and can be anything you want, good or bad. What’s difficult, at times, is making the right snack choice. Oftentimes we find ourselves grabbing a few potato chips, candy, cookies, or other delicious baked goods.
In an office setting candy seems to be the easiest way to participate in bad snacking behavior. All of that extra sugar is no good for people trying to watch their weight or even lose weight.
Luckily for us there are healthy (and tasty!) alternatives.
In a recent article about snacking healthy
, the author comments that when she snacks healthy it looks as if she’s eating like a toddler. And honestly why wouldn’t it?
Apple slices, bananas, cheese cubes, granola, popcorn – these are all things we ate as toddlers yet somewhere along the way many of us started giving them the cold shoulder.
Snacking like this is not only healthy for you and your diet it’ll also leave you more energetic than eating sugary, processed foods. The apple sandwiches recipe mentioned in the article not only sounds delicious but it looks delicious, too.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with spreading some Nutella on toast or indulging in a few savory treats from time to time. We earn these pleasures and have every right to have them within reason and on occasion.
What do you like to eat for an afternoon snack? Does it look like a toddler’s plate?
