Snack Like a Nutritionist to Beat Hunger Without Blowing Your Healthy Eating Habits
We’ve talked to a number of nutritionists about how you can boost the nutrtional value of your meals and learn to love the food you eat, but sometimes it helps to do as they do, not just do what they say. Turns out, many nutritionists have some pretty tasty—and healthy—snacks in their lunchboxes.
The Huffington Post asked a number of nutritionists what they ate when they got the munchies, and while some of the responses were pretty strange (avocado-kale smoothies?) some of their other suggestions were portable, tasty, and good for you. One of my favorites that made the list was dried, roasted seaweed—which you can get at any asian market in convenient snack packs that are only about 30-50 calories a serving, and that serving is enough to beat back those hunger pangs.
Other nutritionists suggested a half of an avocado when you’re looking for something fatty and flavorful, or munching on a hard boiled egg to get some protein when you’re feeling hungry. Another suggested an apple with some almond butter, which works for us since it’s apple season around here. Whatever you eat, moderation is key, but some of these suggestions are filling enough to hit the spot and help you stick to your healthy eating plans at the same time, especially with the holidays coming up.
