If you don’t snack, are you even living your best life? In my humble opinion, snack-time is one of the most important times of the day. If I don’t snack at all, I overindulge at lunch and dinner. I eat way too much and almost always regret it later. I’m always looking for weight watchers snacks on the go, so that I can feel good about my favorite mid-day treat.
If I eat junk snacks, my body feels the slow and bloated effects for the rest of the day. Plus, it will still crave the nutrients I didn’t give it when I was snacking on Oreos.
But the problem is, if I’m busy, I’ll reach for whatever is in front of me.
Rather than depriving your body of fuel it needs in between meals, reach for snacks that boost your health and your mood at the same time.
One of the hardest things is watching what you’re eating when you’re in a rush. It’s so easy to grab the nearest snack option, healthy or not, when your stomach is growling. It’s sometimes hard to eat healthy when you’re constantly on the move. AKA, when you have a life.
