Buyer Beware – Part 2:

Sugar is added to a lot of processed foods, dressings, juices, and marinades to add flavor and lengthen shelf life.  Even if you’re not still popping jelly beans from the Easter Bunny ( I know Easter is tuff),your taking in a lot of excess, unnecessary sugar every day until you can move your food plan closer to a clean eating style. Remember any baby-step changes that you can make in this direction,  is a positive change.

Here are some good/healthy, low-sugar snacks:

-Pistachios/almonds/walnuts (no-salt) roast them at home at 400 degrees for 8 minutes or so.  Watch them closely, but roasting them makes them taste amazing!

-String cheese

-Adamame (thaw from a frozen bag)

-Sunflower seeds (no-salt)

-Raw vegetables (try pea pods, carrot sticks, blanched asparagus, blanched green beans, cherry tomatoes, sweet yellow pepper)

-Non-fat cottage cheese

-Popcorn (home-made recipe shown on recipe section as seen on homepage of YourCity.MD )

-Celery with hummus

-Fruit (apples, nectarines, peaches, grapefruit…)

 -Low-carb tortillas with organic almond butter, or hummus

-Low sugar/high fiber breakfast cereal.  Bag ¾ of a cup in sandwich bags

There is no need to succumb to a vending machine! Be a bit organized and stash healthy snacks in your car dashboard, your briefcase, your desk or purse.  Or find a stylish lunch/cold sack (they have great ones now) and take a cold pack.  You’ll consume a lot fewer calories filled with salt, sugar and saturated fats.  You’d be amazed how much food you can eat for the same calories and you’ll save tons of money!
