Do you ever crave a snack, but don't know what to eat? You worry it's unhealthy, or that you'll regret it later. While many snacks will leave you feeling weighed with guilt and sugar or fat, just as many snacks are a GREAT way to stabilize our blood sugar in between meals. Then at meal times, we are able to properly digest what we eat. The nutrients from the right kind of snacks will become energy in the body too, also great for a midday pick-me-up.
Tracy's Tip: 5 Snacks for Energy and Metabolism
Snack #1 Nuts and Seeds
I enjoy making my own trail mix by roasting cashews, almonds and Brazil nuts at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. Then, I add pumpkin and sunflower seeds, dried goji berries, and cacao nibs. I make it in bulk and then store in glass containers in the fridge.
Snack #2 Hummus with baby carrots
The mixture of vegetable and protein, this snack can keep you satisfied and energized.
Snack #3 Frozen Grapes
Great for a sweet snack on a hot day. One of my favorite summer snack choices.
Snack #4 Almond Butter
Enjoy with celery, apple or banana for a full blood sugar stabilization.
Snack #5 Grapefruit (the essential oil is easier to consume on the go)
I love grapefruit essential oil! It uplifts my mood as well as my metabolism. It helps curb cravings and tastes oh so good. Another amazing oil blend from doTERRA that I love is Slim n Sassy which is specifically designed for women. Disclaimer. If you are choosing to consume essential oils make sure to use a highly therapeutic brand.
