Making healthy choices at the last minute can be hard. Either you don’t have “good” choices available or you over eat &/or justify “bad” choices because you waited too long to eat and feel you “deserve” or can handle the extra calories.

Some tips on making healthy snack choices easier.
1) pack a snack at all times (pick something balanced in protein carbs and EFA’s)
2) know your options. If you need to stop at a store know what are you looking for, don’t grab just anything.
3) drink water. has it been 3 hours since you ate last? sometimes we think we need a snack when what we really need is water.

“Good” Snack Choices:
1) 1 string cheese with 1/2 c celery sticks and 14 raw almonds (this can all fit into a snack small bag)
2) 1-2 hard boiled egg with 1/2 c jicama and carrots sticks and 14 raw pistachios
3) 14 gr serving of protein powder w/water and 1/2 banana + 1/2 Tbsp natural peanut butter blended

You will be the most successful with your nutrition when you take the time to plan and be prepared. Don’t let poor planning derail you from your health goals. Take a few extra moments each week to plan out your snacks.
