Snacking in between meals has received a bad reputation in today's world of diet culture, restrictions, counting macros and/or calories and other unnecessary complexities.
The reality is, sometimes your body needs a little extra nourishment in between meals.
This is totally normal and totally OK!
Ignoring your body's hunger signs and allowing yourself to get to the point when “hangry” kicks in doesn't do you, your body or anyone around you any good.
When you find yourself feeling hungry - listen to your body. Have a snack.
Yes, I said it….have a snack!
