Before heading out to an outing, errands, a party, or even dinner, eat a small snack before. This will help prevent overeating and “eyes bigger than your stomach.” If you are fully hungry before going out, this can lead to snacking more than usual, eating large portions, fast food, etc.
Healthy small snack ideas:
Cheese and crackers
Celery and peanut butter
Piece of fruit and peanut butter
Hard boiled eggs
Hummus with veggies and pita chips (or beet hummus)
Vegetables with a homemade dip
Pair protein and fat with some carbs! The protein keeps you full, slows digestion, and keeps blood sugar level.
