Under Category in Recipes, Weight Loss

When we hear the word “snacking” many of us tend to believe that to lose weight snacking is something we need to stay away from. Snacking is not only essential to successful weight loss it also supplies our body with much needed nutrients throughout the day. It’s important not to confuse healthy snacking with snacking out of boredom. What’s the difference you ask? Healthy snacking helps to control you hunger between meals and aids in stopping us from over-eating.
