Our box, CrossFit Thermal, is doing a month-long nutrition challenge from July 7-August 7. Members are choosing various levels of engagement, ranging from strict Zone to strict Paleo, to “no grains, no extra sugar.” I will be posting a short nutrition tip to help people stay on point and make clean nutrition a life-long habit instead of just a short term “diet.”
Nutrition Tip #11: It’s OK to Snack!
People associate snacking with chips, pretzels, and soda, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can snack with some leftover chicken, an apple, and some almonds, and even portion it out to a few Zone blocks. Jerky, dried fruit (be careful of added sugars!), and other nuts/seeds like macadamia nuts are all good combinations you can try. If you’re too lazy to make your own snack, go buy some PaleoKits and have them at your desk for those times when you need a little pick me up. Snacking doesn’t have to mean unhealthy eating!
What are some go-to snacks for you?
