Since I am eating smaller meals, and a snack in between, I plan on getting hungry between meals! I always carry a snack in my purse, briefcase or small insulated lunch bag, so that when I do get hungry, I have a healthy, low-cal, high protein and/or high fiber snack available that has already been planned into my food tracker. All of my choices are 150 calories or less. Some of my favorites are: Adkins bar, Chocolate Teddy Grahams, fat free yogurt, or Kozy-Shack Chocolate pudding.
By having a planned snack vailable, I avoid searching out food on the spur of the moment. That usually leads to a bad choice from a convenience store, fast food place, or vending machine!
I try to make my snacks include fruit and/ or veggies and to balance those carbs with a protein. I also try to keep them in the 100-150 cal range. A friend introduced me to this snack a couple of weeks ago and it is my new favorite!
Cut an apple or pear into quarters, grind fresh black pepper and a little salt over the top, squeeze a little fresh lemon juice. A perfect sweet, savory, salty snack! I add a slice of Jarlsberg lite cheese and it comes in around 120 cals, delicious and satisying!
