25 Slim & Simple Snacks - Easy-to-prepare, 150-calories
Snacking can make or break your fitness goals. A snack you may think is healthy, such as a granola bar or trail mixes, can have more calories, carbs, fats and sugars than you would think!

When trying to reach your fitness goals, it’s okay to snack throughout the day as long as you are picking the right foods! You want to avoid sugary items like candy, soda and processed foods. Instead, stick with lower calorie foods such as lean proteins, vegetables and a small serving of fats.

Snacking isn’t grazing, so you want to be sure you have a set snack prepared, and when you are done…you are done. Grazing can lead you to adding countless calories to your day, which in turn, can jeopardize your goals. I suggest you prepare your snacks in advance, so you can avoid grazing. Check out some of my favorite, easy-to-prepare snacks. These all have three or less ingredients and have fewer than 150 calories each!
