SNACKS. Today’s 4th Meal. RECIPES. Thursday, 1pm ET

recipe, white bean dip

How many meals did you eat yesterday? Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner used to be considered the only times we sat down and ate. Now we not only don’t sit down and eat at each meal, we have added an afternoon snack meal. Some even snack during mid-morning. Why is this? Our lifestyles have changed. Consequently, so have our eating habits. Unfortunately for some this means eating more than we need resulting in excess pounds. And, too often nutrient packed foods get lost in the grab and go snack shuffle. Toby Amidor RD to the rescue! Not only is she founder of Toby Amidor Nutrition, she is a food writer and has authored cookbooks, her latest being “The Greek Yogurt Kitchen.” As a busy working mom, Toby has had to figure out how to balance and spread daily wholesome food needs into four meals. She has sorted out what we should serve for on-the-run or sit-down snacks in order to satiate while nourishing hungry children and adults. You are in for a treat – delicious snack solutions such as Raspberry Oat Bars, Mama’s Berry Smoothie, plus Kale, White Bean or Hummus Dips with carrot sticks. On a cold afternoon why not serve and enjoy a cup of warm Lentil or Black Bean Soup topped with a dollop of Greek Yogurt!

Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen with Toby, Co-Host Carolina Jantac, RDN (Kid Kritics Approved) and me as we fill up on healthy yummy 4th Meal Snack Solutions! Thursday, 1pm ET, on W4WN.com and W4CY.com.

Jennice Vilhauer

But in the landmark book Think Forward to Thrive: How to Use the Mind’s Power of Anticipation to Transcend Your Past and Transform Your Life Dr. Jennice Vilhauer, Emory University psychologist, says you can train yourself to set your sights on the future, which can be the actual determination of your life to come.

By thinking about and visualizing the future, the mind begins to create the problem-solving steps and thoughts that can actualize what you DO desire, not what you fear will occur from your past.  In other words, it’s time to step on the gas, and get out of reverse!
