Balanced meals with carbohydrates, protein and small amounts of healthy fat are satisfying and prevent big spikes in blood sugar – the same goes for snacks. Almost all sources of protein include some fat, so if you just think about combining carbohydrate and protein, you’ll have your bases covered. So instead of just having crackers or apple slices, top them with a little natural nut butter or cheese – you’ll have more energy and be less likely to overeat at your next meal. And you’ll be doing good things for your overall health.
