What did YOU have for snacks today?

Are you a snacker?  A healthy snacker….or a junk food snacker?  Today I snacked on figs, almonds, raisins, and a 70% cocoa square.  Sometimes I’m not so virtuous.

Snacks are one of the greatest sources of calories.  Think about it.  You try to eat a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but you let down your guard when you have that energy slump around 3pm and you head to the snack bar.  Whoa! and the calories in those snacks.  Take a peek at the nutrition label.  Candy bars are around 240 calories!  Chips are in the 200 calorie range too. 

What your body probably needs more than it needs a snack, is to take a little walk and drink some water.  Listening to your body (moving it and hydrating it) will save you a ton of calories over time.

Want ideas for 100 calories or less… problem.  Get them here.

Now it’s your turn.  What are your favorite snacks?  Share your ideas (recipes?) for healthy snacks.  We’d all like to eat better….and snacking is a great place to shave calories.  What are your great snack ideas?  Tell us at the comment link below.

    I also plan my snacks. I have an apple with 2 pieces of Hersey’s Bliss Dark chocolate or a serving of yogurt in the afternoon. Then after supper, I have almonds, prunes (and if the fiber count will allow) some crushed bran flakes with 1/2 tbsp honey.

  2. Love it! Keep sharing. Your process is fabulous. Cheryl
