Should You Be Snacking?
I saw an IG post today that basically said we should not be snacking if we want to achieve our “body goals.”
👌 Please know that eating between meals (snacking) is absolutely OK!
👍 If your body tells you that it’s low on energy and needs food, eating is the right response.
🚙 What do we do if our car is low on gas? Yup, we fill our tank! It would be silly to expect our car to run on empty.
😊 Let’s treat ourselves as well as we treat our vehicles. (and preferably even better!)
🍪 I had a chocolate chip cookie and strawberry yogurt this afternoon because my tummy was growling. It was signaling to me that it needed food so I responded by giving it a snack.
⭐️ There are no rules to a snack, but I typically like to combine a protein, carb and fat, if I can. I find this combo filling and satisfying.
🔹 Yogurt = protein and carbs
🔹 Cookie = carbs and fat
💁🏻♀️ Side note: I usually buy 2% or full fat yogurt because I think it tastes best, but I grabbed the wrong kind during my last grocery visit.
