The Perfect Snack Portion

Snack Ideas

I can barely make it through the afternoon without a snack. There’s something about that 3 PM blood-sugar crash that just slays me. But I’m trying to snack smarter and healthier, so I’m following these portion guidelines to make sure I’ll still be wanting dinner.

200 calories – This is the ideal amount to perk up your metabolism without having to count it as a meal.

3 grams of fiber – Fiber digests more slowly so you’ll maintain energy through that afternoon budget meeting.

5 grams of protein – The more protein the more satisfied you’ll feel.

12 grams of fat – This is the maximum amount your snack should have for a healthy snack.

Looking for ideas that fit these guidelines? Here they are: low-calorie snacks for every craving.
