Eating a small snack every few hours can help to stabilize blood sugar, support weight loss, and increase energy throughout the day.  The keys are to keep it small (no more than 200-250 calories) and include a protein, a healthy fat and fruit/veggie in each snack.   Here are a few ideas:

1. Hard boiled egg & baby carrots

2. Hummus & veggies

3. Air popped popcorn and a handful of frozen grapes

4. Low-fat cottage cheese & fruit

5. Whole wheat toast with peanut butter and sliced banana

6. Small handful of almonds or pistachios & fruit salad

7. Part-skim string cheese wrapped with a slice of low fat deli ham & orange slices

8. Apple slices with almond butter

9. Fat-free Greek yogurt with fresh fruit

10. Half an avocado with salt, pepper & a spoonful of salsa

11. Low-fat animal crackers & a glass of skim milk.
