Hence the desire to snack often assail us between meals and sometimes it is tried to ignore thinking of not neglecting the diet.
Well, eating something between meals is not a bad habit and doctors and nutritionists recommend it as hunger is avoided , makes sure to have all the nutrients needed by our body and maintains an active metabolism. Of course, it should be healthy food, rich in protein and fibre, low in fat and calories.
