How to Snack Smarter

Snacking. We do a lot of it in America. However, we don't always snack on the best foods and sometimes end up consuming as many calories as you would in a meal. So, the question is, how does one snack a little smarter and healthier? Well, if you need some snack ideas, here's 55 of them!! Yes, 55!! Click here to see the list of ideas (which are all around 200 calories or less!).

Additionally, some of my personal favorite all-time low-calorie snacks include:

  • Cocoa roasted almonds that you can get by the bag (or single serving packets) at the store. Almonds have the good kinds of fat in them, plus protein, and the cocoa gives it a little extra flavor (especially if you want a little sweetness). 
  • Carrots and hummus. If you've never tried hummus, you should! I had it for the first time a few years ago and wondered why I never gave it a try before! Trust me, it's good! My favorite brand of it (if you're not making it yourself) is the Athenos hummus. 
  • If you're the type that likes ice cream after dinner, try some low-fat frozen vanilla yogurt with some strawberries or raspberries on top. Drizzle it with a teensie bit of chocolate syrup and you have a really sweet treat that isn't going to be over-the-top on calories. 

Grace and peace to you, my friends!! I hope that this has been a help to you and that you can find some snacks that you like! It's not as difficult as you'd think to snack smarter. You don't have to turn to junk foods! There are lots of good options out there! Feel free to comment and share your tips and faves with me (and everyone else that's reading this blog)! Would love to hear from you (as always)! Be infused! God bless you!
