Snacking. It is something we all do. In fact 25% of our daily calories come from snacking. That might seem like a lot but I know I snack all day, what about you?
I snack mostly because I am too busy to sit down and have a real meal. Taking care of the husband, kids, house, on top of working leaves me little time to remember my own needs. It never fails though, I will be in the middle of something and the hunger hits, or worse the hangry comes!
The worse is when I crave a certain food. Sometimes I want sweet, other times I want salty. Interestingly enough, I never really craved anything when I was preggos but I more than make up for it now! At least I know that if I ate all the chocolate and salt-n-vinegar chips I wanted the results would not be cute or good for me. What's a girl to do when she wants what she wants? My best advice is finding healthier alternatives. When it is chocolate I want I turn to nutritional bars that taste too good to be true but they are still good for me. Pretzels with hummus are perfect for the salty cravings. For my sweet tooth, I try to keep fruit in the house, apples, bananas, grapes, etc.
My favorites, my go-to snacks are the bars and fruit. IF I remember them, they are easy enough to grab from the kitchen, shove in a bag, plus they last all day without being refrigerated.
There is no getting around our desires to snack. So if we are going to snack, we better start making better choices. I for one, am always looking for new ideas.

Swapped peanut butter cheesecake for Greek yogurt with peanut butter. It’s kinda funny because I’ve been doing this with fat free or low fat yogurt.
