Healthy Snack Ideas

Sometimes you just need a mid-day snack to help get you through to the next meal. Here, we’ve included some of our favourite snacks to eat between meals!

When choosing a snack, look for whole foods vs. highly processed pre-packaged foods, and avoid snacking late at night. Our bodies were designed to rest and repair over an extended period of time when we sleep, and eating late at night interferes with this process. In fact, our digestive tracts have a ‘cleaning’ mechanism that only operates between meals, leading some experts to believe that we should leave space between eating each meal instead of grazing throughout the day. If you are trying to lose weight, I recommend that you limit snacking.

All that being said, if you have a big appetite you may want to pack one or two of these in your lunch (or a serving of salad from the salad bar) to go along with it; just don’t fill up before dinner! These items aren’t reflected in your grocery list so you’ll need to add them!
