Healthy ways to curb those hunger pangs.
Packaged grab-and-go snacks are high in sugar and simple carbohydrates that leave us feeling hungry a short time later. Like our meals, snacks should be planned so we have nutritious options readily available. Prioritize protein and healthy fats when considering mid-day munchies to avoid blood sugar spikes and crashes:
Sliced fresh veggies with guacamole
Hard boiled eggs (also delicious with guacamole)
Protein from last night's dinner: hamburger or turkey patty or piece of chicken
Whey protein shake (add spinach for some extra nutrients)
