Trust me…it’s okay to grab a snack! Just be sure that you are making healthy choices when you do.
March is National Nutrition Month. It’s a great time to be thinking about what choices you are making when you do snack. Whether you want to lose some weight, need to address specific health issues or just want to feel better, the day-to-day choices you make about how you fuel your body can make a big difference.
Snacking itself isn’t the problem, and may actually be good for you. Keeping your blood sugar at a consistent level can help with your energy and mental alertness. If you start to feel restless in between meals or find that you aren’t concentrating like you usually do, go ahead and get yourself a little something to eat. Sometimes that’s all you need to get you back on track to accomplish all that you have set out to do in your day. Just make sure that you are grabbing healthy options. Save the candy bars or donuts for once-in-a-while treats! Your mind and body will thank you.
