Having a snack attack? Do you still find yourself snacking between meals? We recommend fruits and vegetables, but if you feel the need for a little more - maybe something to satisfy that sweet tooth - then try one of our deliciously healthy between-meal snacks.
Snacking has gotten a bad rap for far too long.
According to the medical experts at WebMD.com, "One of the biggest myths about snacking is that it's a bad thing. The truth is that it's not snacking itself that's bad for us. It's all the junk food people like to snack on that gives snacking a bad name: chips, candy bars, french fries, sugary sodas, and so on.
"In fact, if you eat until you are comfortable (not 'full') at lunch, chances are you'll need a mid-afternoon snack to tide you over until dinner with plenty of energy. The secret is to snack only when you need to and to select smarter snacks."
See? You can have your cake and eat it too - when that snack cake is a good nutritional fit for your healthy diet!
We don't want you to go hog wild with between-meal eating. Snacking in conjunction with your meal plan will add calories and reduce your weight loss progress - unless you are very active and participating in an exercise program.
But if you can use the extra calories and need an afternoon nosh to keep those hunger pangs at bay, then we advise you to check out our new snack assortment that's available for our mail-order clients.
