Ideas and Inspiration

green apple snack

You might feel like you have an insatiable appetite and are always hungry in between meals. This is because your body now requires more fuel to burn. Try to snack on nutritious non-fat foods, like fruit or popcorn. To avoid overeating, you may want to plan meals in advance, so that you don't gorge yourself on anything in sight.

Another great snack -- pumpkin seeds! During the autumn season you can make them yourself (or whenever you can grab ahold of a pumpkin at the market). During the rest of the year, you can find them pre-packaged. They are easy, delicious, portable and so good for you.
