• Snacking Myths 12 Days of Christmas Specials starting TOMORROW!

    ON the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…

     On Tuesday December 1st we will begin our annual 12 Days of Christmas. FOR MOST YOU CAN EITHER CALL OR EMAIL- NO NEED TO COME IN!!! (Covid friendly, if there is such a thing). They are listed below so you can plan accordingly. They will also be emailed the day before to remind you. The specials are good ONLY on that day.

     Mused after reading that the Centers for Disease Control has estimated that some 53 million Americans have likely had Covid-19 by the end of September. This translates into only 1 in 8 infections have been identified.

      Snacking Myths

     Myth 1: Snacking is healthy or unhealthy. A snack is anything eaten between meals. Choose low calorie foods so as to not eat more calories over the day than your body needs.

    Myth 2: Low fat snacks are the best choice. While “low-fat” implies healthy, some foods like pretzels have refined grains and salt which can lead to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. Look for mono- and polyunsaturated fats over saturated.

    Myth 3: Snacking will spoil your appetite. Knowing your body and whether a snack will be a help in the amount you eat during meals or not. A small snack may lessen the amount of calories eaten during a meal.

    (Did You Know? I typically eat a big dinner which keeps me full and I avoid eating sweets before bedtime. Knowing your body helps in healthy eating.)

    Myth 4: Healthy snacks take effort. Healthy choices are easy to find: fruit, pre-cut vegetables, nuts, hummus with veggies, tuna snack pack, hardboiled egg, popcorn without butter, cheese, and unsweetened yogurt are some.

    Myth 5: We need to snack. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you’re satisfied. But don’t let distraction or pre-portion items override your full signals your body sends out.

    If you’re thirsty, have an unsweetened drink; if you’re bored read a book, do a puzzle or listen to music; if you have low energy, go for a walk; if you’re sad or lonely, call a friend.
