Let’s talk about what comes to mind when you hear the word “snack”. Do visions of sugarplums dance in your head? If so, you’re not alone. Most people tend to associate snacks with indulgent, overly processed treats – in other words, a health-conscious individual’s arch nemesis. But it doesn’t have to be that way. When executed properly, snacks can provide key nutrients, fill nutritional gaps in our diet, curb cravings, and perhaps even help with weight management.
But choosing the right snack is not always easy – especially when your goals include taste, nutrition, and convenience. In fact, the task may seem overwhelming, or even impossible to those who are unfamiliar with the process. That’s why I’m so excited to share this new book with you today.
365 Snacks for Every Day of the Year is the go-to guide for crafting delicious, healthy snacks no matter where you are. Written by fellow Registered Dietitian Sarah Koszyk, this book walks you through every step of the snacking process – from pairing complementary food groups to planning out weekly snacks. Plus, Sarah shares fun nutrition facts and helpful shopping tips along the way to make your grocery trips a little less stressful.
Americans today are snacking more than ever. We snack in the car, at our desk, and even at home. We snack to silence our grumbling stomachs, to entertain our boredom, and to satisfy our cravings. But what we often neglect to do is snack to fuel our bodies.
This book fills that nutritional void, all the while still meeting the basic human need for taste and convenience. Everything is broken down based on your location, providing easy, convenient, and tasty options for snacking at home, on-the-go, or at the office. All 365 of the snacks included in this book contain 250 calories or less, and each is individually labeled so that you know just how the snack fits into your daily routine.
Looking for a quick bite to tide you over until lunchtime? Why not try the Edamame Hummus with Red Peppers or Prosciutto Wrapped Honeydew (each under 120 calories). Or perhaps you just finished your afternoon workout and are in need of a more substantial snack to help replenish your energy levels. The Goat Cheese and Apple Crostini, Pita Pocket with Curried Chicken Salad and Sliced Grapes, or English Muffin Pizza (all between 230 and 250 calories) ought to do the trick.
Thanks to the simple, methodical process outlined in the book, creating a healthy snack is as easy as pie. Speaking of pie, did I mention there’s an entire chapter dedicated to snacks to satisfy your sweet tooth? You know this dessert-loving gal was all over that. I mean, how amazing does a Frozen Banana with Nutella sound?! YUM.
