Use this guide to find healthy snack foods that’ll give you the nutrients you need to fight off diseases like cancer.
Plan ahead. If your busy schedule doesn’t include time for three balanced meals, keep a healthy snack on hand to tide you over.
Focus on portion control. Prepackage snacks into single-serving containers to avoid overeating. And, choose snacks that have 200 calories or less.
Make the perfect snack by combining an unrefined carbohydrate, like fruit or whole grain crackers, with a protein, like cheese or peanut butter.
Stock up on nutritious options. Opt for snacks that include a fruit or veggie. It’s a great way to sneak in extra nutrients.
