We all get hungry between meals and sometimes find ourselves wanting a snack. But that doesn’t mean our food goals have to go off-track. Here are three simple ideas for satisfying your snack cravings.

Try nuts instead of sweets
“If I get hungry during the day, I’ll grab a pack of unsalted peanuts for the protein.” 

—Lawrence Atkinson, Atlanta, GA

Swap the sugar
“Swap out a sugar-packed snack for something with more protein, like Nature Valley protein bars.” 

—William Plymel, Tifton, GA 

 Make nutritious smoothies
“I use my Ninja for smoothies. Usually it’s a bunch of strawberries and one banana, and spring mix with kale.” 

—Patty Roberts, Knoxville, TN
