Healthy Snack Options
The key is to find foods to snack on that are high in fiber, which may keep you feeling fuller, longer.3 A few of these healthier options include:
- Hummus & veggies
- High-fiber cereal bar with protein, or low-sugar protein bar
Alternatively, grab a snack that helps boost metabolism and burn fat. Some examples of these fat-burning foods include:
- Avocados & cottage cheese
- Canned tuna on whole-wheat crackers
- Minty green iced tea
