Staying healthy when you’re constantly on-the-go is tough. Often, it’s easier just to grab something from the vending machine or the nearest fast food joint. Keeping a bag of snacks nearby can not only satiate afternoon hunger, but it can also keep you from succumbing to that Snickers bar.
Instead of sacrificing healthy eating, try KIND Healthy Grains Clusters in six flavors: Vanilla Blueberry with Flax Seed, Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Oat with Flax Seed, Maple Walnut Clusters with Chia & Quinoa, Dark Chocolate & Cranberry and Oats & Honey with Toasted Coconut. These artisanal, whole grain blends will keep you full without packing on the pounds. You can snack on them plain, or add them to Greek yogurt, some cut-up fruit or mix a few clusters with some nuts and dried fruit to make your own trail mix.
- Look for foods that have a combination of heart healthy fats, fiber and protein to keep you satisfied longer.
- Seek out snacks that are portion controlled or plan ahead and pack portions of larger snacks into smaller sandwich bags.
- When mid-afternoon hunger pangs hit, reach for nutrient-dense foods like fresh fruits and veggies.
