Like most people, when I'm hungry and need a snack, I grab a cookie, candy bar, chips or popcorn. Who wouldn’t want to have them to snack on? Well, I have decided that it’s time to change up my routine. Of course, in order to maintain or lose weight it’s all about moderation. But why not give up some of your favorites for a healthier option? Of course, I will take at least one day a week and splurge on something that I enjoy to eat. Why deprive yourself of your guilty favorites? I have listed just a few low-carb snacks ideas that you can have at home or work... try working these into your snack rotation!
