  • Q:  What snacks will help me manage my blood sugar level?
    A: To maintain stable blood sugar levels, always carry a snack kit. That way, you’re prepared to eat every three hours no matter where you are. You’ll want a “grab-and-go” kit with three 250- to 300-calorie snacks to eat between breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here are some ideas to get you started:
    Snack 1: Turkey jerky for protein, a handful of nuts for good fats and an apple for carbs.
    Snack 2: Greek yogurt for protein, a handful of sunflower seeds for good fats and a handful of dried cranberries for healthy carbs.
    Snack 3: A natural protein bar with equal parts protein, fat and carbs. Avoid protein bars that are packed with sugar, dairy and artificial ingredients, and instead seek out bars made with real fruits and grains.
