I am the kind of person that likes to snack/graze. So what helped me a lot was to always have munchies that are healthy with me at work etc...so I take blueberries, strawberries, snap peas, carrots, apples, oranges, or whatever is available.
When I have the urge to snack or I feel hungry, there is a healthy alternative.
Grapes are a natural sweet treat....so when you have the urge to munch on sweets that are not good for you...grab a handful of grapes. Having a frozen snack attack??? Got that covered too....freeze some grapes in a plastic freezer bag to retain freshness...when you desire frozen sweets....grab them magical grapes!!!!!277
