Snacking has become a way of life so it must be nutrient-dense to not add empty calories to our meal plan or waist line.
In order to be a conscientious “snack shopper” choose high protein and/or high fiber foods.
* Purchase snacks in advance so you don’t have to stop when hungry to quickly scan the store’s inventory.
* Pack your pre-measured snacks in baggies or containers to avoid overconsumption.
*Incorporate a fruit and/or vegetable with at least two of the daily snacks.
*Select only seasonal produce grown in the USA
*Learn with the assistance of a dietitian to read food labels. Sugar may be addressed using ~50 different names.
Americans love to snack! Be sure to choose wholesome “back to nature” foods!
