Face it, who doesn't love to snack? Responsible snacking is one of the main principles of clean eating. The key to snacking responsibly is portion control, this means eating a specific amount of one food, so that you don't end up over-snacking. The first step to snacking responsibly is first to have a designated snack time, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. My biggest suggestions, never equate a large amount of snacks (no matter how healthy they are) to a meal. A snack is a snack, a meal is a meal, when these two intermingle it can make your blood-sugar levels go crazy. I like to have a savory snack in the morning, and a sweeter, pick me up snack in the afternoon. I want to show you my favorite snack ideas and products.
