The science behind snacking

When your stomach starts growling, pay attention, but don’t eat the first thing you see. Plan ahead and pack any of these delicious snacks from our healthy snack ideas section. Your body will thank you later.

You don’t want to feel groggy and fatigued throughout your work day, do you? Avoid mindless eating and over indulgence in fattening, high-calorie foods will make you crash later. Snacks are supposed to bridge the gap between meals so you don’t stay hungry all day long, but when you eat junk food—it causes your blood sugar to spike, which causes you to feel extreme hunger.
