Hello everyone! I know this is going to be a dumb question, but need a little advice, I'm 47 (yea an old lady)...and I am trying to tone up and maybe lose a few pounds. I love the workouts and am using my elliptical every day. My ?? Is healthy snacks. I get really hungry between meals, and don't want to sabotage all my heard work by eating unhealthy.

Any ideas on what I can pick up at the store that will help toed me over while not being unhealthy or full of calories?

Any advice is appreciated!!

Thanks!

Look up strawberry chips. Basically it's when you put cut up strawberries in the stove and then they harden and taste like chips, yet are still healthy. Also if you need carbs take parsnips And cut into fry or circle shape, then heat in oven. For more info and ingredients google Parsnip Fries

You can always eat fruits that are low in sugar (like apples, pears, watermelon,...) or you can mix smoothies with fruits or vegetables (green smoothies). If you need something in your smoothie as a filler you can blend in cashew nuts, almonds or even one tablespoon of oatmeal. I sometimes simply eat cheese or mixed nuts (no salt!). Keep it up and best luck with reaching your aims 😄 👍

Yh and apple crisps work well (same idea s with the strawberries but cheaper :P) also, try eating same amount but in 5 smaller meals - keeps metabolism higher for longer :) good luck
