Today I opened up my email from nature box and it said that men 20 + on average eat 923 empty calories a day and women 20 + eat 624 empty calories a day by snacking. This is surprising to me! I mean 923 calories!!!!! How many calories are people eating?
For the most part I track what I eat either by writing it down, or on weight watchers.com ( I don't always agree with weight watchers but tracking my food through them works well with me and weighing myself every week)
Healthy snacks or super foods are very easy to find.... I believe in snacking between meals, but I make my snacks count. Here is a list of our go to snacks
trail mix ( i norm make our own)
pop chips ( only 9 at a time)
peanut butter with apples
hummus and carrots
peanut butter on celery
a spinach smoothie
2 slices of dark chocolate( hey its full on antioxidants)
sun flower seeds
a small salad
a slice of toast with peanut butter and sliced banana on top yumm
dark chocolate cover acia
pretzel chips with hummus
So if you are looking for a nutritious snack.. try one of these plus there are a TON more!!
