Avoid that afternoon slump -forget the vending machine and try these healthy snacks!
Eating between meals can keep your energy up and keeping the weight off -- if you choose snacks that combine carbohydrates with protein for a pick-me-up that lasts. Try these: sliced red peppers and hummus, apple slices and peanut butter, or cheese on whole wheat cheese_and_crackers.jpgcrackers.Because peanut butter, hummus, and cheese are high in fat, it's best to limit your daily servings of these.
Choose a frozen fruit treat - skip the bowl of ice cream or the butter popcorn and try this yummy snack! apple_and_PB.jpg
For a quick and healthy sweet snack, try frozen seedless grapes- just put the grapes in a zip-top bag, and toss them in your freezer. Grapes contain resveratrol, an antioxidant that helps protect your heart, and they're even sweeter when frozen.
