HEALTH HACKS | Snack Attack

A key strategy to healthy eating is healthy snacking. For many, the word "snacking" probably mentally triggers unpleasant self-images of inhaling chips, devouring cookies, etc. Actually, snacking can facilitate an extremely healthy lifestyle if done correctly and in moderation! Your body needs nutrition throughout the day--during the lulls between breakfast and lunch, lunch and dinner, snacking offers a savvy solution to a peckish stomach. So, instead of grabbing a cookie, you should commit to a healthy (and tasty) snack that will satisfy you until your next meal and appease your conscience.
