The States of Snacking

Friday, January 15, 2016

Classes have started up again so I wanted to share things that get me through studying. This semester I have a few very long (almost 3 hours eeek!) courses. So I don’t get hungry and munch on the wrong things.

I love tea so I prepare my cup with honey in the bottom and my tea bag then add the hot water when I get to school. If I don’t have tea I take water to drink or juice. I like juice too but it has so much sugar in it. I have recently gotten into the Bolthouse Vanilla Chia Tea, which is delicious, but I try to replace about half with some almond milk to cut the sugar.

*Sugar fact: Women should only consume about 25 grams of sugar per day. Check those labels and try to keep it down. You would be surprised at how much sugar is in everything.

Fruit is always a good snack: grapes, apples, grapefruits, bananas… enough said. They are portable and refreshing. You can always pick up some dried fruit too! Dried mangoes are one of my favorites.

I take other things like oat bars, protein bars, fiber one snacks. Whatever. I personally don’t like nuts so I don’t eat that or normal trail mix, but that’s an option.

Its best to have snacks ready to go, so that way you can stay energized and spend less. Also, you won’t be as tempted to pig out later on something unhealthy. Happy snacking! By the way look at my new planner!
