  1. Nutrition Tip of the Day (and EVERY Day!)

    Several good ways to keep our blood sugar under control is to eat small frequent meals throughout the day, eat foods low on the glycemic index, always pair a starch with a protein and eat some good fats and fiber.

    So for this week, let one of your daily snacks be:

    * 3 celery sticks filled with a little peanut butter, 3 cucumber slices, 3 carrot slices, 3 slices of any color pepper (you can vary these veggies, but eat mostly green with other colors of the rainbow thrown in!).

    * 6-10 raw almonds (or small handful of unsalted roasted peanuts) with a small bunch of grapes.

    * optionally, you can also have 3 oz. of PLAIN yogurt with a bit of honey in it.  Make sure the yogurt is NOT non-fat (low-fat is fine) with no added sugary fruit.

    Pay attention to how you feel after this healthy snack.  We believe you will notice that you feel satisfied, healthier, and a bit happier for doing something great for your body!

    Have a healthy snack, Yak!!
