Smart Snack Packs

The Martha Stewart Show, September September Fall 2007 2007

The best way to banish the temptation to eat unhealthy foods is to make time each day to sit down for at least three nutritious meals to prevent hunger, and to keep healthy options at the ready for when you're on the go. A good idea is to carry one of these "destress snack packs," each of which contains about 100 calories.
