A piece of fruit. A container of yogurt. A handful of almonds. Do these snacks sound familiar? And boring? Here are some delicious, nutritious, and, most importantly, satisfying snacks that will keep both your taste buds and stomach satisfied!
Instead of: A Larabar
Try: Sliced banana with nut butter, raisins, and cinnamon
I tend to crave something sweet in the afternoon, so I always used to reach for a Larabar or similar snack bar. It tasted delicious going down, but not even an hour later, I'd want something else to eat. For a more satisfying snack, I slice up a banana and add a scoop of nut butter, some raisins, and a couple of shakes of cinnamon. I still get my sweet snack, but this one satisfies me through the afternoon without a problem.
