Did you know you can eat snacks and still reach your goals? Yep, contrary to popular belief, snacking is NOT bad (#plottwist)! If you do it the right way, of course.
What’s the “right way” you may ask? It’s not rocket science. All it takes is some simple planning ahead. We’ve all heard the saying, “failing to prepare = preparing to fail” and it’s true. If you don’t prepare snacks to have on hand ahead of time, you’re more likely to gobble up those easy-access cookies in the break room. They’re tempting, I know. But if you have healthier alternatives on hand, those cookies become less tempting. In turn, you feel less guilty knowing you’re on track to reach your goals! #eyeontheprize
Here are 5 tips on how to snack the right way…
1. Have healthy snacks on hand
If you’re like me, I often turn to snacks when I suddenly feel ravenous and need something to hold me over until my next meal. Here are some easy snack ideas you can plan ahead!
- Fresh fruit
- Veggies & hummus
- Cheese sticks
- Rice cakes & nut butter
- Mixed nuts
- Yogurt & granola
- Dark chocolate & almonds
- Roasted kale chips
- Hard boiled eggs
- Chia seed pudding
- Protein shake
2. Incorporate snacks high in protein
Protein is known to satisfy hunger for a longer period of time. Some protein-rich snacks include hard-boiled eggs, nuts/ seeds, protein bars and protein shakes.
3. Don’t starve yourself
Starving yourself is not a sustainable way to lose weight or tone up. Listen to your hunger cues. When your body tells you you’re hungry, fuel it.
4. Drink plenty of water
Studies suggest you should drink half of your body weight in water. Water intake varies person to person, but I suggest creating a sense of awareness to ensure you’re drinking “enough”. I like to carry a water bottle around that I can refill wherever I go. Surprisingly enough, we may think we’re hungry and want a snack when in reality we may just be dehydrated. Hydrate, the benefits are endless!
5. Have healthy sweet snacks handy
