Got the munchies? Nutritionist shares tips for healthy snack choices

(Natural News) Hark! The herald angels sing and they’re telling you to put down that donut. As we approach the holiday season, it has become all the more tempting to indulge in snacks. After all, nutritionists say that snacking is good – healthy, even. There is a difference, however, between mindless snacking and helping your body maintain its energy levels.
Registered nutritionist Colleen Webb and registered dietitian Gabbi Berkow warn that snacks should combine the right amount of protein, healthy fat, and fiber to give the body the nutrition it needs. They recommend a snack that has around 20 grams of protein, is less than 200 calories, and contains less than six grams of added sugar per serving.
As Webb explains, “Snacking on nutritious foods can boost our daily intake of essential nutrients, help to avoid overeating at mealtimes, minimize cravings for unhealthy foods, keep our energy levels up and fuel workouts.”
Ideally, people should have a mid-afternoon snack around 3 p.m. because that is when most people experience an energy slump.
Breaking it down
Think of this as a game; it’s just more fun that way. Now that you know what makes a great snack (a combination of protein, healthy fat, and fiber; less than 200 calories; and has less than six grams of added sugar), you can mix and match to your heart’s desire. We’ve broken down what you would need.
Protein – You need this to preserve muscle and keep your metabolic rate up. These also make you feel fuller longer, so you don’t overeat at your next meal. Healthy food that contains 20 grams of protein include a cup of cottage cheese, three hard-boiled eggs, and eight oz of plain Greek yogurt. In a rush? Munch of edamame. These can easily be bought in your local grocery store and contain high amounts of protein and fiber.
Healthy fat – Anything that you add to this snack combination should be unsaturated or plant-based. Try going for olive oil, chia seeds, avocados, or nuts. Healthy fats slow down digestion and make you feel satiated faster.
Fiber – These help your digestion. Good sources of this include fruits, grains, and beans.

100% organic essential oil sets now available for your home and personal care, including Rosemary, Oregano, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Clary Sage and more, all 100% organic and laboratory tested for safety. A multitude of uses, from stress reduction to topical first aid. See the complete listing here, and help support this news site.
You’re only really limited by your imagination. To help you get started, try some of these snacks. All of these contain less than 200 calories.
Eight oz of plain Greek yogurt, one serving of fruit, and a handful of nuts
Three hard-boiled eggs, sliced vegetables, and hummus
One medium-sized apple or banana slathered with peanut or almond butter
High-fiber crackers with smashed avocado and salt and pepper
10 carrot sticks with two tablespoons of veggie dip
One-quarter cup of almonds, cashews, or pistachios
A slice of turkey and a slice of low-fat cheese like Swiss.
Snacks should be spaced evenly throughout the day as well. Berkow suggests her clients eat every three to five hours to prevent blood sugar levels from dropping too low, too fast. Done correctly, snacking can prevent over-indulging and keep you feeling healthy and energized the entire day.
Is snacking before bed bad?
Inevitably, you will ask whether snacking before bedtime is bad. Studies on the topic are conflicting. However, most nutritionists agree that while eating before bed is not necessarily bad, it does pave the way to unhealthy habits, such as not sleeping on time, drinking, smoking, and leading a sedentary lifestyle. The problem is not that you eat at midnight but that this behavior lends itself to being a couch potato. People who suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are also discouraged from eating before bed. When you have a full stomach and lie down, the food has an easier time going back to your throat.
