Don't Run on Empty
For the month of June we are counting down 30 Days to Summer with registered dietitian Stefanie Senior. Each day she will reveal a new tip to help you reach your summer health goals. Join the conversation through Live Right Now's Facebook Event, "30 Days to Summer" and share your own tips and successes or post questions and feedback. We will enter your name into a draw for a free Skype nutrition consultation with Stefanie.
Don't run on empty. It is easy to go hours without eating while juggling life's demands. Always keep healthy snacks on hand especially when "on the go" to ensure that you can eat every 3-4 hours. For example, you can keep the following foods in your purse, bag, or desk drawer: ¼ cup servings of raw nuts, seeds or trail mix (in Ziploc bags or small Tupperware containers), 100 calorie snack packs of raw almonds, healthy granola and protein bars (I like FitSmart), or individual containers of canned fruit or applesauce. Other on the go snacks include: small pieces of fruit, grapes or cherries, a small whole grain tortilla with natural peanut butter, baby carrots or tomatoes, or individual containers of yogurt or cottage cheese.
