Snacking can actually aid in weight loss, as long as the snacks are tasty and healthy. One snack I often ate during weight loss and still enjoy now as I continue to maintain my weight is trail mix.
I suggest making your own trail mix, avoid the trail mixes sold in stores which often have too much sugar and salt in a serving.
For my trail mix recipe I use the following ingredients, but feel free to substitute your favorite nuts/dried fruit.
1. Dried cranberries
7. Brazilian Nuts
Mix a hand full of each into a container, add a touch of salt, shake and enjoy 2-3 hand fulls as a snack before or after a work out.
If you find that you are unable to limit yourself to a serving (like I did), I suggest buying the small snack size Ziploc bags and carrying just a serving with you. Use the trail mix to avoid tempting foods too, fill your stomach with a quick bite of nuts and dried fruit instead of processed french fries.
