We LOVE to eat. But, we tend to eat a lot of empty calories. Here’s some ways to change that!
1. Aim For Snacks Under 200 Calories
Look for protein sources (10 grams) and those treats that have 5 grams of fiber. An apple and a glass of skim milk is just above 200 calories but includes 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber.
3. Like Shrimp?
Shellfish can be a great snack. Keep precooked shrimp on hand. Add 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt, ¼ avocado,½ tsp fresh lime juice, ¼ tsp jalapeno sauce, 5 cooked large shrimp and 1 piece crisp rye flatbread. ( Add chopped fresh parsley and cracked black pepper for garnish.) Now, you’ve got yourself a delicious treat. Plus, it’s only 129 calories, with 9 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber!
