Snacks are a great way to relieve hunger in-between meals, especially when you are on the go. The only problem is that when you get that "snack attack", the only options available are usually the classic bag of chips, cookies, muffins, or other items that are high calories and low in nutrients. With all of these unhealthy options readily available, you may not have realized that snacking can be a way to incorporate the important nutrients your body needs.
