Do you experience mid-morning or late-afternoon hunger? The best way to satisfy this hunger is to have a snack. Healthy snacks bridge the gap between meals, stabilize blood sugars and help you maintain energy throughout the day.
A smart snack should be between 100-200 calories and include a protein and a carbohydrate. The number of snacks needed in a day is unique for each individual. Be aware of your hunger signals, and have a snack only when your body needs it. It is good to have snacks on hand, but they do not have to be eaten if you are still satisfied from your last meal.
