There’s nothing wrong with reaching for a snack or two throughout the day, but quarantine and working from home has us reaching for them all the time!
Here are 4 tips from nutrition pros to help us break the snacking cycle:
- Eat protein & fiber with every meal to keep you feeling full. Try adding lean meat, nuts and fish, and high-fiber foods like whole grains, vegetables and seeds.
- Use a food diary app to track how much you’re really eating. Apps like these can help us find patterns in our snacking, like eating more when we’re sad or feeling stressed.
- Get enough sleep to avoid throwing off your body’s natural hunger cues.
- Make healthy choice so your snacks are both nutritious and tasty! Instead of sugary drinks and baked goods, try fruit and yogurt, a handful of nuts, a banana and nut butter, or carrots and hummus.
