Snacking or a grabbing a quick light meal is one of of the areas where people land themselves in trouble when it comes to diet. The main reason for this is grabbing for pre-made snacks from the supermarket laden with additives, preservatives & seed oils that work as endocrine disruptors causing metabolic & hormonal disruption. This applies to many snacks marketed as health food & for weight loss. When we gain weight, erroneously, we then blame the calories in food when it’s not the calorie’s fault. In fact, including fats like avocado, cheese, full cream yogurt, nuts & nut butters, seeds & seed butters to your snacks, is the best choice as not only are they a nutrient dense, but they also keep you satisfied for longer, regulate blood sugar & provide essential messengers for healthy metabolic & hormonal function.
