Smart Snacking Strategies

A well-chosen snack can offer vital nutrients, satisfy hunger, and give a much-needed energy boost throughout a busy day.  The key is portion control.  Try these tricks for refueling the next time a snack attack strikes:

  • Dip high-fiber veggies in a low-fat or non-fat ranch dressing.
  • Create a delicious smoothie with low-fat or non-fat milk, strawberries, a banana, and a handful of spinach – you’ll never know it’s there.
  • Spread celery sticks with a tablespoon of peanut butter and top with rasins.
  • For a frozen treat, try a peeled banana dipped in low-fat or non-fat yogurt, rolled in crushed cereal or granola.
  • Top low-fat or non-fat yogurt with a small amount of crunchy granola and berries.
