30 Day Nutrition Challenge: Day 27

30 Day Nutrition Challenge
DAY 27 –
Snack Attack
To prevent over-eating at dinner and inhaling food when you come home from work or school, packing a healthy mid-afternoon snack is critical.  Think about combining a food that offers a source of protein with a complex carbohydrate.  Some healthy mid-afternoon snack ideas include: a pear with 10-20 raw almonds, a probiotic yogurt with a piece of fruit, a few whole grain crackers (e.g. sodium-reduced Triscuits) with a piece of cheese, a cut up apple dipped in natural peanut or almond butter, carrot and celery sticks dipped in hummus, a hard boiled egg with some grapes on the side, cut up cantaloupe or peach slices with cottage cheese, etc.
