Master the art of snacking!

Who doesn’t love a good snack?!

Snacking has been given a bad rap when it comes to managing weight or dieting.

One of the big reasons is that many snack options that come to mind or that are most accessible on store shelves and vending machines are simple carbohydrate options (like chips, crackers, cookies) that give you a quick boost of energy but ultimately don’t leave you satisfied for very long at all, sending your blood sugar levels up with a quick spike that comes right back down.

This shows up as heading back to the pantry searching for something else. But snacking can be really important to many aspects of your health.

💥Balancing blood sugar (to avoid huge drops)

💥Energy levels

💥Mental clarity

💥Hunger-fullness levels

Now I’d be remiss if I didn’t say that you really want to start by building a balanced plate during your meals to support you throughout the day. But let’s be real, some days you just need a little something else. Your meal wasn’t what you needed. That's where a quality snack comes in!

The key is to master the art of snack so it supports you. I’m going to tell you how!

Blood Sugar Balancing Snacks

Reaching for a snack that had a protein or fat paired with a carbohydrate will support your blood sugar levels, keeping you energized but also satisfied longer without the big crash.

Some example:

😋apple with nut butter 😋seed crackers with hummus 😋chips and guacamole 😋greek yogurt and some berries 😋trail mix & a beef stick 😋Protein balls with nut butter, oats, & seeds

Having a variety of options keeps you from getting bored.

💥 Have some options in the pantry for on-the-go / easy to-pack for the office or traveling, as well as the fridge

💥 Salty & sweet choices to satisfy different cravings (usually based on what you might not have gotten in your last meal)

Planning ahead and having your snacks in the house / in your bag just in case helps you avoid that battle with limited choices or trying to use willpower (which we all know doesn’t work too well).

💥 Pack a snack for that day you are at the office or out and about just in case. It’s better to have it and not need it than the other way around.

💥 Stock up each week and have those easy-to-grab snacks ready in your pantry/fridge so you don’t have to fight with the hunger pains and use more energy to make a snack.

One of my go-to snacks is a blender bomb bar* OR homemade power balls. What about you?!
