Eating small, healthful meals throughout the day not only helps keep blood sugar levels stable and energy levels high in some people, it can also be the best strategy to help prevent overeating and promote a healthy weight. Start by making your main meals smaller in size and stocking up on healthy, satisfying snack items to round out your day. Good choices include:
- Fresh or lightly steamed veggies
- Hummus with whole wheat pita
- Seasonal fruit with good-quality yogurt and freshly ground flaxseed
- Whole grain crackers with a small piece of cheese or smoked salmon
These healthy snacks also have the added benefit of being part of the anti-inflammatory diet, and may help reduce the incidence ofdiseases in which inflammation plays a prominent role. Join Dr. Weil on Healthy Aging for all your anti-inflammatory needs, including recipes, shopping lists and checklists.
