TWENTY Delicious AND Healthy Snacks for a Lean Lifestyle

I’m often told by clients and readers that they struggle to eat more frequently. Many times, we wait until we’re famished before grabbing a bite and end up making an unhealthy choice. Eating frequently can ward off a bad decision or a binge. The typical problem I hear from people, however, is that they can’t think of decent, protein-filled healthy snacks to fill in between meals. Many simply get bored with eating the same things over and over and over again.

I get it! I’m totally the same way.

To help you out, I’ve put together this extensive list of TWENTY delicious snacks to mix things up a bit from day-to-day. I’m sure you can find a few things on the list to add to your snack rotation.
