Balanced snacks help control your blood sugar, manage cravings and stabilize your energy throughout the day. A balanced snack plate should have fiber, protein, healthy fats and some color!
To make a balanced snack plate start with a protein, add a few vegetables and fruits, and round it out with healthy fat like nuts or seeds.
