Three simple tips on snacking!

As chiropractors, our job isn’t just to get you healthy—it’s to help keep you healthy, too. Sometimes, this goes beyond adjustments and into your diet- especially in times like this when we are mostly stuck at home and our local coffee shops are closed. Admit it or not, everyone snacks—but not always healthily. We’d like to offer our input with a few tips to help you snack smarter.

1. Keep chewing! Did you know that a fully chewed bite can mean moving your teeth up and down 40 times? Studies show that people who chew thoroughly feel fuller than those who skimp on chewing.

2. Fill gaps with snacks. Finding it hard to fit in the recommended servings of fruits and veggies each day? Consider snacking on frozen grapes or celery with nut butter or hummus to fill nutritional gaps in your diet.

3. Plan your snacks. The brown-bag approach never fails- even in lock down, this will control what you snack on and you avoid getting into the cupboard looking – which might tempt you for not just one but maybe two or tree treats!
