Eat a small snack before going out

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.
