Three Easy Steps for Healthy, Delicious Snacks that Fuel Your Body in Fredericksburg
Well-planned snacks are a great way to support post-workout recovery, increase the amount of nutrient-dense foods in your day, help balance your moods, and curb cravings. The trick is keeping those snacks healthy!
You can do that with three easy steps:
1. Choose a healthy protein, a vegetable and a small amount of fat. A grilled chicken thigh with some baked sweet potato fries is a great example. Another example would be a black burger (no roll) with salsa and avocado. Another easy choice would be jicama with hummus.
2. Think of ‘mini meals’ instead of snacks. Processed snacks are often filled with sugar or sugar substitutes that take you away from your healthy goals. Stick to simple foods instead of products.
3. Add new food combinations to the rotation to prevent boredom. Having a chart with a list of combinations helps. Make sure to personalize your chart, and have every family member do the same because enjoying your food is a big part of staying on track!
