Power Snacking

Power snacking shares the same concept as meal planning during the day – only applied to snacks, it allows people to be mindful for when they snack; in turn allowing snacking time to better benefit your body rather than destroying it.

  1. When do I snack?  

When snacking, ask yourself and reflect on when you feel hungry between meals and when you tend to snack. 

  1. Why exactly do I snack?

If you find yourself snacking a little too often; ask yourself if you are eating because you are hungry or because it was invoked by certain emotion such as boredom, sadness, stress or angry. Ensure you are only snacking when you are hungry. 

  1. What am I snacking on? 

Decide which types of snacks you enjoy the most and choose alternative snacks whenever you can – such as swapping candies with raisins, chocolate with fried fruits, and potato chips with crackers. It’s the small changes that really make a difference. 

  1. How much am I snacking?

When having a snack, always be mindful of how much you are taking. A proper snack portion should be enough to satisfy you – but not too much that interferes with your appetite for the upcoming meals. A simple tip for measuring the proper portion of snacking is to aim for 150-250 calories. 

We hope this article helps you snack more healthily – benefiting not only your body, and your mind as well. Happy (mindful) Snacking!
