Snack smarter, not harder

We all have snack attacks. It just happens.

And part of being healthy is definitely eating – and eating often.

But it’s important to be aware of what we’re putting into our bodies while watching television or sitting at our desks.

This week, bag up some snacks.

Take time to buy just a few small snacks that provide a health benefit to you so you’re ready when hunger strikes. You can store these snacks in your desk, in your car or on the side table next to your couch. If it’s the closest food to you, chances you’ll eat it are a lot higher.

Instead of grabbing potato chips or cookies, consider bagging up some air-popped popcorn, almonds with some dark chocolate mixed in, bite-size veggies with hummus or roasted chickpeas. These will fill you up for longer and give you an energy boost.

If you want to go a step further, check out your local grocery store’s health food section or even the potato chip aisle – there are usually healthier alternatives sitting right next to the stuff we typically reach for.
