Believe it or not, our snacking habits have patterns. According to the NPD Group, snacks consumed after eight at night tend to lean toward the sweet side of the spectrum, whereas mid-day snacks lean toward the more savory side.
This may hint that we crave protein and fiber-rich foods earlier in the day to keep us pushing through those long work hours. Whatever the reason, snacking smarter can keep you full and can keep energy levels up as you check the boxes on your daily to-do list.
While Americans are snacking more than ever, snacking smarter can be a challenge if you don’t know what to look for in your energy-boosting treat. To help with the challenge, we have rounded up a few snacks that are high in protein and fiber to keep you energized and alert as you go through your day.
Avocado Toast with Chives
Avocados make a great cream cheese substitute because they bring a smooth consistency in addition to a healthy dose of fiber, potassium, and vitamin B. Give your breakfast a boost by spreading avocado on toast, then topping it with sautéed tomatoes and onions as well as fresh chives, garnished with chive blossoms. — Meatless Monday
