Snacking is Good.

So there’s a lot of conflicting information out there about snacking and if it’s good or bad. So let’s get something straight: snacking is not bad. Snacking is good. It’s good to fuel your body; to be putting in good things in your body consistently, throughout the day. Your body is like a machine and you’re not gonna drive 200 miles and expect to not stop for gas, right? And putting food in your body, snacking throughout the day is the same way. If you wanna keep that energy and that focus up, you need to be constantly putting food into your body.

The Bad Snacks

These are examples of not so great snacks:

  • excess sugar
  • excess salt
  • potato chips
  • candy bars
  • donuts

The Good Snacks

There are better out there that are made up of whole foods such as the following:

  • fresh fruits and vegetables
  • plant based protein
  • animal proteins
  • chicken salad or wrap
  • dairy
  • nuts or seeds

So the excess sugars, the excess salts, those are what causes our body be low on energy. When we eat foods that are high in sugar and salt; but low in nutrition; we may get energy quickly, but we end up crashing 1-2 hours later, and looking for something else.

If you want energy to sustain you throughout the day, you want to choose foods that are high in nutrient value and in their most natural state, lots of whole foods and snacks.

Meal Timing

 

It is important to be eating every few hours.

I know in the beginning, I had trouble with this. It is easy to get busy with work, errands and kids.

If you have a hard time remembering to eat, I suggest setting a timer, as a reminder.
