Healthy Living Tip - Tune Up Your Snacking

It’s very difficult to stick to a new diet or lifestyle 100%. Many experts recommend trying for an 80-20 or 90-10 approach to a diet: 80% on track and 20% indulgences. One way to avoid the temptation to give in to cravings is to plan your treats and keep tempting junk food out of the house. Here are some tips:

  • Keep high-quality snacks like raw veggies, seeds, or nuts on hand for quick bites.
     
  • Replace potato chips with lower carb or lower sodium crisps.
     
  • Keep small size treats on hand like small frozen yogurt bars instead of half-gallon containers of ice cream that make it easy to overdo it.
     
  • Have a sweet tooth? Try dark chocolate squares with at least 70% cocoa.
