Ideas for Healthy Snacking

One of the things many people do is eat healthy meals, then opt for unhealthy snack food. This sabotages not just your weight but your health as well.

Instead, here are some suggestions for healthier snacking when those urges come up, and a two-step strategy for dealing with snacking behavior.

First, ask yourself what you are really hungry for?

For example, is what you really want

  • love?
  • affection?
  • attention?
  • appreciation?
  • company?

Then, if it’s one of the above you crave, try giving yourself what you feel is missing instead of using food to fill a hole that it cannot possibly satisfy.

Healthy, Yummy Snacks

If you’ve asked the question, and what you really want is a snack, try ones that are healthy and won’t sabotage your eating plan.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Almonds or cashews
  • Organic apple
  • Celery with organic peanut butter
  • Organic popcorn made the healthy, stove-top way using coconut oil
  • Carrots and humus

Asking this question and using healthy snacking are great ways to incorporate self-discovery and positive action into your life.
