Weight Loss Tips - Bring in the Healthy Food

 Bring in the Healthy Food

Healthy snacking is a recommended strategy for your weight loss program. It has worked well for us during our respective weight loss journeys.

Here’s a list of some of the healthy snacks we keep on hand in our kitchen:

1. Grapes and raisins
2. Mini rice cakes
3. Shelled pumpkin seeds
4. Low-fat cottage cheese
5. Slices of lean turkey
6. Graham crackers
7. Cherry tomatoes
8. Hard boiled eggs
9. Crunchy peanut butter
10. Marcona almonds
11. Trail mix
12. Dark chocolate
13. Fresh and frozen fruit
14. Protein bars
15. Walnuts
16. Water bottles
17. Protein recovery drink
18. Fresh vegetable wedges
19. Sugar-free Jell-O
20. Low-fat yoghurt

You’re encouraged to explore and other recommended Web sites for additional healthy snack suggestions.

We recommend having a light snack in the morning and one in the afternoon to keep hunger pains at bay. Keep variety in your snack routine or you’ll more likely get bored with your diet and slip off track.

If you’re on the go like us, then you want to be sure to always have healthy snacks with you, such as protein bars or trail mix. It’s so easy to snack on unhealthy foods by default, if you aren’t proactive in this department. It’s always a good idea to have an extra snack for a friend or work associate to demonstrate your commitment and help others eat better too!

Here’s to your healthy eating habits!
