Go Further With Snacks

Natl Nutrition Month
National Nutrition Month – Go Further with Snacks
 
Planned snacking is a great way to keep you feeling full and satisfied. It’s also an easy way to add several hundred calories and derail the best intentions.
 
The secret is in the planning. Go Further with Snacks by pairing a high fiber food with a protein. If you like things salty, lightly salted whole grain crackers and hummus or low-fat cheese. If you like it sweet, apple slices and a natural nut butter or plain Greek yogurt and berries. If sweet and salty hits the spot, make a trail mix.
 
These 100-200 calorie snacks can fill you between your meals without overloading your caloric intake.
 
Trail Mix: 1/4 cup nuts + 1/8 cup raisins + 1/4 cup whole grain unsweetened cereal
226 calories; 6g protein; 5g fiber
 
Fruit and Yogurt: 5oz plain Greek yogurt + 1/4 cup berries
110 calories; 16g protein; 1g fiber
