Planning ahead and coming prepared with healthy snacks is a wonderful way to ensure you are not tempted to pickup processed, high sugar foods that are not health promoting. The key to maintaining energy and blood sugar throughout the day is to ensure you include some fiber, fat and protein in your snacking. Fiber, fat and protein take longer for the body to process thus slowing down the release of sugar and helping to maintain your energy level longer.
