Balancing blood sugar is the key to lasting energy and diminished food cravings. We can do this by eating smaller, more frequent meals during the day and always consuming some form of protein with every meal and snack. Don’t go for longer than three hours without consuming food.
Examples of healthy snacks include:
- small protein and fruit smoothie
- an apple with peanut butter
- sugar free plain yogurt with a tbsp of flax meal and a handful of berries
- natural protein bar, small handful of trailmix
- celery and hummus.
During the holiday season we are bombarded with sugar laden treats that are nutritionally poor and can wreak havoc on our blood sugar. By eating healthy snacks we will be less likely to overindulge in our meals. Don’t make the mistake of starving all day to make room for an enormous turkey dinner. Your digestive system will not be happy and neither will the scale the following day.
