For some of us, putting together a healthy meal at breakfast, lunch, or dinner can be a breeze, but where we all seem to fall short is in the snack department. Let’s face it, we all snack at one point or another, and choosing between a bag of chips or carrot sticks to get through your afternoon slump is often futile (the chips win). However, you may be able to successfully swap your old snacks for new, healthier ones by thinking about what it is that drives your snacking. Are you craving something sweet? Or do you need a snack with a good crunch? Or maybe you are feeling like a mindless munch to get you through that project. Whatever it is, we’ve got you covered with our Real Nutrition NYC healthy snack swaps guaranteed to satisfy your next snack attack!
