Let’s be honest. When we say “Snacks” we think about chips(crisps), candies, chocolates, cookies, ice cream, and other sugary or salty treats that would normally satisfy a short term craving. Yes we “have to live” but not necessarily by eating junk food all the time. I understand that it can be difficult to transition to healthier snacking especially when you’re only thinking about or just starting a new diet but what helps is limiting yourself to what you can reach.
Being in charge of your food intake means you can choose veggies/fruits that you can prepare and snack when you have a craving. If it’s the only thing you can find in your fridge then you can either eat it or wait until the next meal time. Don’t worry! You have a myriad of options to choose from. Just look at the list below and if you have some suggestions that aren’t on the list, you can leave a comment as well. Thanks for dropping by!
