As someone who diets regularly, having snacks on hand is imperative.
Snacking between meals keeps me energised throughout the day and also aids my weight loss goals. Before I started paying attention to my food, I’d often reach for candy bars or ice cream, which aren’t the best options. If I didn’t snack on one of those, I’d simply remain hungry until dinner time and then overdo it because of my hunger!
To ensure I stick to my goals, I try to keep my snacks on the healthier side. Because I’m more of a sweet snacker, you can bet my snacks reflect that too.
