Nutrition is the key for a better life. Eating healthy makes us feeling better.
Enjoying healthy meals and avoiding processed food is a simple and, yet, the most important step to lose weight.
Cravings between meals ?
We all feel hungry between meals; it’s normal and that’s why we have snacks.
But there are good and bad snacks. I know it’s very easy to grab some candy when hunger strikes but doing this will not help you lose weight.
Bad Snacks: Processed food (donuts, cereals, packaged chips) might taste good but don’t provide you with any nutrition and, even worse, never satisfy your hunger for long so you end up constantly snacking between meals.
Good snacks provide nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fiber which will make you feel full for a couple of hours. No more constant craving.
Reducing your cravings between meals will help you to lose weight.
Grab-and-Go Good Snacks
During the week, grab-n-go snacks are the perfect solution to take to work or school, or have at home, because, whatever you are doing, you probably don’t have time to prepare a nice healthy snack.
