We all know that one major key to losing weight and keeping it off is to eat at home.
Prepare your meals ahead of time, including snacks, and only go out to restaurants for special occasions.
But, Your Life Is Just Too Busy
Let’s face it – you have SO many responsibilities at home and you are SO busy…
Sometimes you have to grab a snack on the go,
…on the way to work,
…or on the way to your child’s baseball game,
…or on the way back from the doctor…
You know how it goes! Often when you stop to fuel your car, you think to fuel your body, too.
Stay On Track No Matter What!
Sometimes time (and food prep) fall to the wayside. So, the key to saving your meal plan, diet, and waistline, is to make smart choices at the store!
In particular, here are a few items to avoid and a few to reach for, next time you’re in a rush.
Avoid These Fatty Snacks!
- Original Potato Chips (so salty!)
- Milk chocolate bars
- Dried fruits (too much sugar!)
- Granola Bar with yogurt
- Chocolate & Nut Trail Mix (the fattening chocolate cancels the healthy nuts)
Reach For These Satisfying Snacks Instead!
- Snack Pack of Almonds (look for unsalted products)
- Dark chocolate (eat sparingly!)
- Beef jerky
- Trail Mix (plain! No chocolate!)
- Whole Grain Crackers
