The winning formula for a healthy and satisfying snack is to combine a carbohydrate-rich food, preferably high in fibre (fruits and vegetables, grains, etc.) with a protein source (dairy products, peanut butter, nuts, beans, etc.). Why? Because:
- Carbohydrates are a source of quick energy that quell hunger and instantly revitalize.
- Fibre contributes to feeling full and helps control appetite.
- Protein helps maintain a good energy level and carry you over to the next meal.
