Today’s mid morning snack is happening in my Lifecycle Nutrition class during a very exciting lecture on adult obesity. I’m ecstatic to report I am no longer obese, and just overweight on that lovely BMI scale! I’m coming for you “normal”, watch out! According to the CDC website, for my height, a normal weight range would be from 122 to 164 pounds.
I’m happily enjoying Watermelon, Pumpkin Seeds & a tall glass of Water, a healthy snack full of fiber, good fat, protein, hydration and yumminess!
I love fresh watermelon in the summer time here in Florida. I bought this beautiful seedless at a local stand produce stand for just $2. I’m learning to love pumpkin seeds. I bought these at whole foods on a whim. They are raw and unsalted, so maybe a little boring, but they pair nicely with fruit for a crunchy healthy snack!
Healthy snacks keep me full throughout the day so that I am never tempted to over eat at meal time and blow my weight loss plan. I have about 8 more pounds to lose to make that “normal” weight on the BMI scale.
Do you snack throughout the day?
