The way you eat not only affects your health and weight, it can also affect your productivity. We all love to snack, even when we are trying to lose weight, but our snacking habits may be adding too many calories and too few nutrients to our diets. Eating the right snacks can help with keeping your energy levels up and supplying your body with the nutrients it needs. Check out our favorite go-to snacks in the list below!
Almonds, cashews and pistachios
These nuts are packed with nutrients and are low in carbohydrates. They are also a great source of protein and healthy fat.
Apples, berries, bananas and grapes
