Snack Attack: How to Get More From Your Snack with Fiber and Protein
We snack—and that’s a fact. Decades ago, we had three meals, perhaps dessert—and that was it. But now snacks are either supplements to meals, or mini meals in and of themselves. In fact, 90 percent of all adults snack at least once during the day.
But snacks that are high in processed ingredients, fat, salt, sugar, or other unhealthy additions to your diet are not the best snacks to have on hand. You’re at particular risk for messing up a balanced eating plan if you choose unhealthy snacks every day. What you should be looking for are options that boost your fiber and protein, both of which help to increase your feeling of fullness. You can, of course, find pre-packaged snacks that fit that criteria—but you have to be a good label reader.
And you can also make your own high-fiber, high-protein snacks, with just a few easy ingredients. This graphic offers lots of ideas to get you started.
