Hungry? Here are 4 Midday Snacks That Are Healthy and Well-Portioned
Picture this: It’s 3 p.m. and you’re sitting at your desk (or maybe running errands with your kids) when your stomach starts to growl. “Ugh, how am I hungry again?” you ponder momentarily. Then, you correct yourself: “Because, food”. You realize you have to eat something and while you could easily run to the nearest convenience store to grab a muffin, granola bar or bag of chips…we veto that. In fact, we ban this decision from happening in this hypothetical situation entirely. Instead, we want to jump into this scenario and offer up 4 good-for-you midday snacks that will leave your stomach in a state of noiselessness and you in a more focused mood.
Read on for our top picks from this past week, thanks to the fellow wellness lovers in the world of food:
