Smart Snacking

Author Amigos Healthy Helper | December 13, 2019

Have you ever had a hunger pain in-between meals? This is a very natural response your body produces to let you know it’s hungry! You might be thinking, “I just ate 1 hour ago”, or “I don’t have time right now”, or even “I don’t like snacking”. There are so many things that go through the mind in order to mitigate this response. Ask yourself this though, what if I had a snack and gave into this feeling of hunger? What would happen? Also, what would happen if you didn’t?

 

Here are some nutrient packed solutions for a small snack that can help tide you over until your next meal:

  • Country Archer beef jerky w/ dried cranberries 
  • Pretzels and carrots with guacamole cups 
  • Pistachios, honey roasted cashews, and dark chocolate almonds
  • Beanitos chips with avocado mango salsa 
  • Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
  • Kodiak bear cinnamon crackers with dark chocolate hummus
  • Skinny dipped almonds
  • Boom chicka pop
  • Enlightened fava beans
