Snack Time!

Share This:

Most people enjoy a good snack (or few) every day. They’re great – they can help you make it through a mid-morning – or afternoon! – slump. They work to ensure you don’t end up ravenously hungry and overeating at your next meal. A snack can also give you energy to stay focused while you’re at work or out and about running errands.

Unfortunately, most people select snacks that are loaded with carbs and sugar. Unhealthy snacks are easy to grab on the go, they’re often cheap, and sometimes sugar is just what you think you need to push you through the valleys of your day.

The problem is those unhealthy, sugary, carby snacks not only make you feel worse, they’re bad for you in the long run. They contribute to conditions like diabetes and obesity.

According to the folks over at Under Armour, “Aiming for a 200-calorie snack is easy when you take nutrient density into account. For example, an apple with a handful of almonds will be more satisfying in the long run than a bag of chips.”

They’ve put together a list of six healthy snacks – that include chocolate! yogurt! fruit! and did we mention chocolate!? – that all clock-in at 200 calories or less.

So, go ahead. Grab a (healthy) snack!
