Snacking Throughout the Day


I like to eat consistently throughout the day as opposed to 1 or 2 large meals.  In other words, I like to start my day with black coffee (no milk) and a bit of sugar along with some hi fiber / hi protein organic cereal (such as Kashi’s Autumn Wheat) and soy milk.  My typical lunch is usually a left over from the previous night’s dinner along with a soy yogurt and fruit.  Dinner varies but it usually includes fish (wild salmon, flounder, mahi mahi, cod, etc.), a green (like swiss chard, broccoli, romaine lettuce, escarole, etc.) and a small starch (at times some sweet potatoes, brown rice, etc.).

In terms of “easting consistently” I mean snacking of course; here are some of my favorites:

  • Raw almonds
  • Raw Walnuts
  • Dried Figs
  • Dried Prunes
  • Peanuts (low salt)
  • Triscuits (low salt)
  • Dark Chocolate Covered Raisins
  • Fruit (banana, grapes, peach, apple, orange, – whatever is in season)

Snacking throughout the day is not an excuse to eat constantly but rather whenever you are hungry.
