Snack Swaps

Sometimes small changes can add up to big differences. Here are a few changes that give you more nutritional value for your calories.

Instead of reduced-fat peanut butter with pretzels
Choose full-fat natural peanut butter with carrots

The dark brown color of the pretzels may make them seem filling and fibrous but they contain mostly refined flour. Look for natural peanut butter with no added sugar. 

Instead of a whole wheat bagel with cream cheese
Choose sprouted whole-grain bread with avocado

Bagels can be nutritionally empty and high in calories. The sprouted grain toast delivers protein with less calories. Add avocado and you also get healthy fats and fiber.

Instead of a cup of fruit
Choose chia pudding topped with almonds and berries

Fruit by itself will only dampen those hunger pangs for a little while. Get protein from the chia pudding, healthy fats & fiber from the almonds and low sugar sweetness from the berries.

Stay Active, Keep Moving and 
Enjoy Your Food
