Let’s face it: Busy schedules mean that sit-down meals often take a back seat.
What’s taken their place?
Snacks, of course.
Don’t get me wrong, I L-O-V-E snacking. But we’ve turned from a meal-focused society to a snack-focused society. And it’s not just one snack, but multiple snacks—three to five a day for some people!
Unfortunately, those snacks don’t always equal good eating decisions.
Many packaged options offer a quick solution for a hungry stomach, but they are also full of ingredients that are less than healthy—lots of fat, sugar, salt, and other things that don’t do much to really satisfy our bodies.10+ Healthy & Simple Snack Recipes #cleaneating #wholefoods #sammisrecipes Click To Tweet
If you like to snack or NEED to snack, that’s OK—but snacking well should be a priority. That means healthy snacks that are full of protein and fiber, which feeds your body and keeps you feeling full longer.
