30 low SmartPoints snacks to keep you on track
You know the after-lunchtime feeling that kicks in around 3:00 pm just about every day? You need something to munch on—and you need it now. Luckily, a well-planned snack can effectively hold you over until dinner. Because, let’s face it, some days, the stretch between these two meals is just too long.
As well as keeping hunger at bay, healthy snacking between meals can be important for keeping your energy levels up throughout the day, your blood sugar steady and your mind thinking clearly.
Worried that eating snacks throughout the day may slow down your weight loss efforts? Don’t be! In fact, it could help keep you on track. Here’s why: If you wait too long to eat and get to the point where your stomach growls and head pounds, you may be more inclined to reach for the first food you see. While you can totally include your co-worker’s freshly baked biscuits or a leftover slice of pizza into your SmartPoints® budget, keeping planned snacks on hand could help you save points for dinner.
Still, the question remains: Which foods should you reach for? The WW program gives you the freedom to cater to your own tastes and eat what you want. Still looking for some inspiration?
