Snacking can be a great tool to help curb hunger, restore energy levels and keep you going until your next meal. The key to snacking is to have an evenly balanced snack that includes a mixture of macronutrients. Adding in some fat and protein will help keep blood sugar stable and satiety levels high! We've got some great options to snack smart to share with you today.
Smart Snack Ideas
Protein Balls - These guys are super transportable and easy to just throw in a ziplock and hit the road. They are fine at room temperature so they can be taken out on a hike or bike trip. They're also full of all the good stuff like flax, chia and added protein. The flax and chia are high in omega 3's so you also get the benefit of some extra good fats.
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins - These guys have that extra bit of protein added in so they do a the perfect job curbing hunger. No added sugar either so you won't get any blood sugar spikes and crashes. They're great on their own or even with a little bit of grass fed butter or peanut butter on top. They're nut free too so they can easily be sent to school as a snack or late breakfast.
