Quick Rev-up Fixes

Smart Snack Strategies:

SNACKS ARE AN EXCELLENT WAY TO AVOID ENERGY DIPS. JUST MAKE SURE THEY AREN'T CONTRIBUTING TO THE PROBLEM.
The most invigorating fuel-up noshes contain carbohydrates and protein. The combination takes a little longer to digest, so it provides more staying power than straight carbs. Just remember, more energy means more calories, so if you're trying to lose weight, keep snacks at around 200 calories. Try one of these power-packed duos the next time you need a pit stop.

1. Medium apple, sliced and topped with 1 tablespoon peanut butter (176 cal, 4 g protein, 24 g carb, 9 g fat)

2. Half a sesame-seed bagel with 1 tablespoon almond butter (199 cal, 6 g protein, 22 g carb, 10 g fat)

3. Slice of raisin bread with 1 ounce reduced-fat cheese (120 cal, 9 g protein, 14 g carb, 3 g fat)

4. 1 cup of low-fat cottage cheese mixed with 2 diced pineapple rings (212 cal, 28 g protein, 19 g carb, 2 g fat)

5. Eight animal crackers with 1 tablespoon peanut butter (184 calories, 5 g protein, 18 g carb, 11 g fat)
