A well-chosen snack can offer vital nutrients, satisfy hunger, and give a much-needed energy boost throughout a busy day. The key is portion control. Try these tricks for refueling the next time a snack attack strikes:
- Dip high-fiber veggies in a low-fat or non-fat ranch dressing.
- Create a delicious smoothie with low-fat or non-fat milk, strawberries, a banana, and a handful of spinach – you’ll never know it’s there.
- Spread celery sticks with a tablespoon of peanut butter and top with rasins.
- For a frozen treat, try a peeled banana dipped in low-fat or non-fat yogurt, rolled in crushed cereal or granola.
- Top low-fat or non-fat yogurt with a small amount of crunchy granola and berries.
