Snack Time!!

If you guys are anything like me, then you love to snack! The problem with snacking for me is that I always do it late at night, and that is something that is very bad on your body.  Another problem with the way I snack is that I eat a lot of peanut butter and cereal.  Both are foods that have quite a few calories in them.  Cereal is actually a good snack for someone who is on a diet where they are trying to gain weight.  As for peanut butter, it may be a good source of potassium but just a couple tablespoons of it can equal about 200 calories.  I know for a fact I have ate much more than a couple spoonfuls of this delicious snack!
Today though, I did not give in to my usual snacking habit. Instead I ate some strawberries and grape tomatoes. I could eat both of them all day! During the summer, I feel that fresh fruit is the perfect snack.

What kinds of healthy snacks do you guys prefer?


  1. I love broccoli, raw or steamed, cottage cheese if I can find a low sodium variety, and fruit smoothies.

  2. Cottage cheese and fruit smoothies are amazing! I completely agree.
