Snacking is a good thing. Our bodies need fuel consistently throughout the day, and we should acknowledge this need. But let’s snack the right way.


(Ok – the Don'ts First)

We all get cravings, but the last thing we want to do is eat something that just creates more cravings. You don’t want to feel out of control. Ironically, the more sugar and simple carbs you eat, the more you crave it -- because over-consumption of sugar and carbs can spike your blood sugar and can even lead to insulin resistance.


Whole grains, on the other hand, are digested and absorbed at a slower pace to help you stabilize your blood sugar and feel calmer and in control.

When that afternoon slump happens, we might be tempted to reach for a snack with sugar or simple carbohydrates. They help release a burst of serotonin, so you feel good for a little while. 
But almost as quickly, you “crash” and return to your low-serotonin state, and the cycle starts all over again.



Low glycemic sweeteners and healthy carbs release a steady flow of energy. They are digested more slowly, causing a lower and gentler change in blood sugar.
We call it Calm Energy.


It’s 4:00 and you need chocolate? If you start with candy or traditional cookies, you may think you’re still hungry and reach for more.  But that’s the blood sugar talking. It’s spiking and dropping, leaving you anxious and unsatisfied. Who needs that?



You can still enjoy great snacking. Dark chocolate, dried fruit, nuts, whole grains and low GI sweeteners make for a delicious treat, without the blood sugar spikes.
