Top 5 Healthy Mid Day Snacks

by Sandy Getzky

Pack your snacks instead of eating at vending machines and you will eat healthier. Your body will stay full for longer and not crash. Take a look at this slideshow of Top 5 Healthy Mid-Day Snacks.

One way to eat quality calories is to "eat your calories" instead of "drinking your calories." When you eat food, you have more satiety and you are more likely to take in fewer calories.

Another way to control calorie intake is to eat more protein and fibrous foods.

The old rule still applies: A calorie surplus (consume more calories than you burn) will cause you to gain weight. Hopefully, eating healthy snacks every day will cause you to consume fewer calories while providing all the nutrition you need.

Stay hydrated at all times. It helps your body operate efficiently and helps you eat less. Drink about half an ounce of water for every pound of your body weight every day. So, if you weigh 140 pounds, drink about 70 ounces of water.

Eat quality calories.
