Snacking throughout the day is a technique many of us use rather than eat three square meals. Sometimes, you’re just hungry and want to eat, right away, without spending time making a big meal. Do you have to constantly look to convenience foods and the takeout menu for sustenance? No, you can make tasty, whole food to snack on throughout the day.
