“Skinny” Bell Pepper Candy
Forget what you’ve heard about ‘3 Square Meals a Day’. Doctors now know that our bodies actually function better when we fuel them in more regular intervals. Snacking between meals is important to maintaining body function, improving energy levels, and avoiding binging at meal times. Not all snacks are created equal, however. It’s important to look for snacks that are low in calories, but are nutritious, too.
