Optimizing health using a science-based holistic approach

Keep your blood sugar levels stable with healthy snacking!

By on Sep 6, 2013 | 0 comments


Snacking or eating small, frequent meals throughout the day helps most of us maintain stable blood sugar levels, especially if we choose the right foods. 

 


Including some protein with each meal or snack is important for avoiding fatigue and mood swings.

Here are just a few healthy, blood sugar balancing snack ideas to keep you energized and balanced throughout the day. Organic foods are always preferable!

1.  A small handful of raw or roasted, unsalted or lightly salted nuts. Walnuts, almonds, pecans, pistachios, cashews, or macadamia nuts are excellent choices. Sunflower or pumpkin seeds are great alternatives.

2.  A tablespoon or two of peanut butter, almond butter or tahini with raw vegetable sticks, such as celery, carrot, or cucumber – or try the nut butter with an apple or pear.

3.  Instead of the nut butters, try some hummus (a chickpea with tahini dip) or guacamole with those vegetable sticks or on a cracker.

4. A piece of fruit or up to a cup of fresh berries with plain yogurt or kefir.

5. A slice of organic cheese (from cows or goats, if tolerated) is another good snack choice, either with vegetable sticks or whole grain crackers. You can also substitute a hard-boiled egg (from a cage free, organically fed chicken) or a tablespoon or two of either chicken or tuna salad for the cheese.
