40 Plus Snack Ideas

 

By Kjersti Cote

 

All of these snacks are for shake/meal daysonly!  

 

A good rule of thumb is that a “snack”is typically mid morning and mid afternoon. I eat about every 2-3 hours- shake, shake, meal- with snacking inbetween.

 

The size of your snack matters, especially if youwant to release pounds and inches. Typically a snack is about 5-10 bites of something or a cup measured out.

 

Enjoy!
