Mid-Morning Snack

I snack all during my workday.  I am a believer in 5 to 7 small meals or snacks throughout the day.  Another reason I do the small meals is when I eat a larger meal I get tired, and it turns out this has a negative effect on my productivity.

My general routine is to have a low calorie breakfast when I get to the office between 7:30 and 8.  I get hungry and have a snack between 10 and 10:30.  I hold out until 12 or 12:30 for lunch because it makes the afternoon go faster.  Then I have another snack anytime after 3, which gets me through the rest of the day and my workout.  I leave the office between 4:30 and 5.  When I get home I spend about an hour working out before I start dinner, which we eat around 7:30. 

My new favorite snack to have mid-morning is very vanilla fat free yogurt mixed with granola.  It is really filling, healthy, and low calorie.  The yogurt is 110 calories and the Granola has 115 calories in 1/3 cup.

Do you use the small meal method?  If so what do you like to have for a mid-morning snack?



I think snacks are the hardest "healthy" food to conquer. I prefer several small meals, but it usually results in junk food unless I have something prepared.

Attempt Balance

I agree. I try to plan ahead for the office so I have something healthy, but on weekends my snacks are much less healthy. Thanks for the post!!
