Last week my friend and I were discussing our daily food input and our snacks
My friend told me that she has a yogurt as one of her snacks. She stressed that it was a ‘low fat’ yogurt and that it didn’t have many calories. I think she was a bit shocked when I told her I don’t touch light fruit based yogurts, especially ones that are low in fat.
How would you like to fuel your body? I don’t eat for the sake of eating. My meals and snacks fuel my body. I like to give my body balanced fuel, consisting of protein, carbs and healthy fats, so my body can actually use what I eat and give me something back.
My Friend’s snack:
Please also note all the preservatives and sweeteners listed on the bottom of the label. ALSO: this is not a brand thing. All brands are the same, check for yourself, take a good look at the label.
My snack is not a low calorie solution. It is an all natural 100% clean snack that provides me with a balanced amount of nutrients that help keep me energised. I would have this kind of snack in the first part of my day.
If my friend would like to continue having yogurt as a snack I would suggest the following:
Use plain yogurt and get creative!
Use half the pot of yogurt, 75g.
To sweeten add a teaspoon of natural honey or a little cinnamon.
Add a little fruit, some nuts, top it off with some chia seeds for extra super nutritional value!
