Small frequent meals- They keep you energetic and your metabolism humming! If you’ve been following Butterandbutts, I am sure you know how I’ve always focused on the importance of eating something every few hours. The idea is to feed your stomach a little, give it time to digest and then feed some more, instead of overloading it with food and forcing it to work hard. And its hard work surely pays off- Look at those love handles! However, having small frequent meals doesn’t mean that you eat whatever you can get your hands on. The idea is to keep yourself well stocked so that you can eat healthy whenever, wherever you want!
I’m someone who starts dreaming about lunch soon after breakfast. And if I don’t eat anything between breakfast & lunch, my stomach starts to grumble and I’m cranky. Hence, I snack!
Snacking if done the right way can make improvements to your overall health. According to a recent survey, Americans with the healthiest overall eating practices were twice as likely to snack as compared to those with less healthy eating habits.
Plan your snacks in advance and keep them in your handbag. Not only will this curb cravings but will also give you the energy to keep going and hit that post-work party with a glow on your face.
