SNACK ATTACK!

Looking for simple and healthy snack ideas for everyday nutrition?  For when you are on the road travelling to races? Or perhaps you will need healthy snacks to get you through hours of watching the Tour De France?!? (replace all beer, wings and Mrs. Vicki’s chips with choices from below! )  Here is a list that you can refer to. All of these snacks have 200-220 calories. If you need more just add 1/3 or double, if you need less cut one in half. Healthy snacking is important for keeping blood sugar levels steady and energy up throughout the day. As athletes snacking is also important to help you get the fuel in that you need for perform. Try any of these and find your favorites!
