Is an Afternoon Snack Part of Your Daily Eating Plan?

I definitely believe in the positive power of a healthy mid-morning or afternoon snack. It is important to keep your blood sugar and metabolism fired up during long stretches between meals. Plus, a little something-something with protein and carbs in the mid afternoon can keep you from over indulging at cocktail hour or dinner. Going without a little pick me up between lunch and dinner is just impossible for me.

I am by no means saying that I reach for Doritos around 3:30. Nope. I have a healthy snack of an apple and some string cheese, or nonfat yogurt and a banana. Also if you need some snacking ideas check out these snack attack posts.
