When I was pregnant I snacked whenever and on whatever I wanted. Post-baby I was no longer constantly hungry, but my diet needed some serious cleaning up. I felt sluggish, out of shape and knew that I needed to make a change.
The hardest part about my diet for me is snacking. While it’s easy to grab a cereal bar, chips or candy, these options are not only not healthy for you, but they won’t leave you satisfied for long. Getting back on track to a healthy diet can be easier said than done. Defeating cravings can be done though by staying full with healthy snack alternatives!
After cleaning up my own diet, I found that eating foods that are high in healthy fats leave me feeling fuller longer. By staying fuller longer, I’m less likely to binge on unhealthy foods throughout the day. As busy Mom’s, it’s important to fill our bodies with healthy fuel. When I snack on healthy foods, I feel better and more satisfied. Therefore, I’m less likely to crave that cookie dough ice cream I have hidden in the back of my freezer (because, balance).
I’ve put together a list of healthy snacks to help keep you fuller longer! These alternatives to our everyday snacks help give you the healthy fuel your body needs, blast belly fat and beat cravings. The snacks on this list are full of protein, fiber and other amazing nutrients.
