Today’s Solutions: August 11, 2022

If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you’ve probably been told to follow this one rule: don’t snack! But the reality is that snacking is perfectly fine, as long as you snack on healthy foods. In fact, research shows that snacking on nutritious foods that are high in fiber and protein helps promote feelings of fullness and may decrease the number of calories you consume in a day. And the good news is there are lots of snacks you can choose from. For instance, apple slices with natural peanut butter is a delicious treat that is packed with macronutrients and can help reduce hunger. Looking for something more savory? Toasted pumpkin seeds are a great option that are rich in protein, magnesium, and a bunch of other nutrients that keep your bones strong and healthy. If you’re looking for some delicious, healthy alternatives to your usual snacks, here are 32 of them. Bon appétit!
