The word "snack" often carries with it a negative connotation, given that it typically is associated with not only dieting but the kind of foods that you shouldn't be eating or just outright avoid when you can.
Snacking truly centers on two schools of thought: eating foods without much regard for the actual item in front of you or making it a point to boost your metabolism and fill the gaps between breakfast, lunch and dinner with foods that are healthy and keep you from overeating during those aforementioned meals.
The junk food items, of course, tend to get the most publicity naturally given the amount of people who struggle mightily with their weight. Those foods tend to be pinpointed quickly, such as desserts, potato chips and anything else with a high fat and calorie count you can get your hands on at a moment's notice.
We all know that sort of snacking is downright bad most of the time (yes, you can have your cheat day in there somewhere; we all do), but what about snacking that is superb and absolutely warranted as part of your daily routine as it relates to meals?
A lot of what ails snacking is that penchant to want to eat foods that are unhealthy because they taste better than so called health foods. But what is often lost in that sentiment is health foods don't necessarily have to be purchased with that particular moniker or bought with little or no emphasis on taste.
