If you have an early breakfast, let’s say around 8.00 am, you may need a snack break before lunch. Both your attention and glucose level would be too low otherwise. If you’re lucky enough to eat breakfast later, you may still need a snack if your morning meal is a light one. You’d better not to get to lunch extremely hungry and overeat as a consequence!
Indeed “a snack break” is useful to regulate food intake and avoid overloading the digestive system during the main meals. I’m still in the process towards more small portions of fresh food a day in order not to make my lunch and dinner moments when I urge to eat (when I would eat everything because of the growing hunger).
I would like to inspire myself and all of you to make better food. What a ambition. Let’s start with a healthy snack, a quick one that fulfills nutrition demands without providing excess calories. Here’s what I had this week to get to dinner without an empty and mumbling stomach. Tea, bread and jam.
Actually more than a jam (sugar, I managed to resist you), a fruit sauce. All accompanied by yogurt. I don’t need something more sophisticated than this, sometimes it’s all about simplicity and genuine flavors.
The healthy snack
- 200 grams raspberries
- 2 slices of whole grain bread
- 1 cup yogurt
- 2 teaspoons honey
- Cut two slices of your favourite whole grains bread.
- Put raspberries in a saucepan under medium heat and stir until the fruits melt in a red sauce.
- Add the honey.
- Spread the sauce over the bread with yogurt.
