Balance Carbs with Protein to Get the Most from a Snack
Add a protein source to your snacks. Protein slows the breakdown of carbohydrates. This reduces blood sugar spikes, insulin release, and the corresponding drop in energy. Also, by including a healthy protein source with your snacks you'll feel full longer.
Well-Balanced Snack Examples:
Yogurt with granola
Toast with peanut butter
Fresh fruit with string cheese
