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.
