You may have heard that people who eat mid morning snacks tend to lose less weight. But that could be because those people are choosing the wrong snacks. So what types of snacks should you be munching on if you can’t wait until lunch but want to keep in line with your weight loss goals?
Granola bars a great snack, as long as you stay away from bars that are high in sugar and calories. Instead, choose a bar that’s high in fiber and protein, and low in sugar.
Cheese and Apple Slices
Make sure you choose a portion-controlled size cheese that is high in fiber and low in calories. Pair it with an apple to bump up your fiber intake and snack size.
Chickpeas, or garbanzos, are a great way to grab a snack that’s packed with protein and fiber. Keep some around in case you get hungry before lunch.
Strawberries and Greek Yogurt
Add one cup of strawberries to some low-fat plain Greek yogurt for a protein-packed snack.
Handful of Shelled Pistachios
Pistachios are filled with protein and fiber. Grab a handful and enjoy this healthy snack that will help you feel full until lunchtime.
Hardboiled Egg and an Orange
Hardboiled eggs are an easy and great snack to turn to before lunch. Remember to hard boil half a dozen on Sunday and keep them in the fridge for the week. Then pair them with a medium orange for a complete combination of protein, fat, and fiber.
Low-fat Cottage Cheese and Banana
Cottage cheese is a great source of protein. Pair it with a small banana that will add fiber to keep you full.
For a snack filled with protein and fiber, grab some edamame. Easily steam some in the microwave and enjoy!
Crackers and Almond Butter
