Snacking? Healthy Combos:

On Snacking

Youngsters eat 3 meals and 2 snacks a day. Some where along the way adults were told to eat 3 big meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. What happened to snacking? Folks, having light snacks throughout the day actually helps keep your metabolism working hard. I’m not saying graze all day AND have your 3 big meals. More like have 5 mini meals.

Nut & Fruit Combo. I was always told, when you eat fruits to combined them with a protein (i.e. nuts, or eggs). Simply put: fruits are high in sugar, so when we combine them with a protein it lowers the sugar content.

It’s simple to make one of your mini meals, or snacks everyday a fruit and a nut combo. There are numerous fruit & nut combos you can do.

Hard-boiled eggs & fruit. Hard-boiled eggs are easy to make. Boil in water for 10 minutes. Wha-la!

A Special trick my mother taught me: when cooking hard-boiled eggs take one of the prongs on a fork and poke a tiny hole at the base of the egg. This allows for the water to cook around the egg and make peeling the shell A LOT easier!
