4/28/11 afternoon snack

Greek yogurt served as my afternoon snack today, with just enough protein (11 grams and 110 calories) to hold me over until dinner.



About notyouraveragefoodie

Not your average foodie, indeed. I have a Masters Degree in Dietetics and am currently employed as a Registered Dietitian at a nationally renown clinic. I created this blog to entertain and inform foodies everywhere. I am a busy, working woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. Possessing the knowledge about food is the easy part. Putting it into practice... that’s where it gets tricky. I consider myself obsessed with food –– how it looks, how it smells, how it tastes, even how it makes me feel. My hope is to provide recipes, tips & tricks each day, to help foodies everywhere eat like a dietitian. I will be sharing my tips & tricks in the kitchen, providing delicious recipes, and helping foodies everywhere navigate through the supermarket, eating out, preparing foods at home, and surviving tricky eating situations whenever they arise.

    What is a good time for an afternoon snack?

    • Excellent question. It really depends on what time you are eating lunch and dinner. I recommend to my patients that when trying to lose, or even maintain a healthy weight, the they don’t go more than 3 or 4 hours without eating. A good calorie level for snacks would be 100-200 calories, and around 10-15 grams of protein. So for example, if you eat lunch at noon and dinner at 6:00pm, 3:00pm or 3:30pm would be a great time to have an afternoon snack.
