Snack healthily: if you want to fill up

Sometimes, we’re just so busy that our “snacks” have to substitute for meals. Eating small amounts throughout the day can be healthy, especially if we concentrate on protein, whole grains and veggies. The American Heart Association offers some good choices if you need a snack to substitute for a meal:

  • Whole-grain toast with peanut or almond butter
  • Cherry tomatoes with hummus
  • Low-fat or fat-free cheese 
  • Plain low-fat or fat-free yogurt
  • Fruit and veggie smoothie
  • Whole-grain crackers with canned tuna or salmon
