Packing in Nutrition with Pre-Dinner Snacks


Thank you to Sabra for sponsoring this post!

When I was little, I remember hovering around my mom when she was making dinner, hungry and being a bother. Her response? She’d feed us veggies. I especially remember eating a lot of fresh bell peppers pre-dinner – she’d toss slices of them back at me and my brother like we were wild animals being held off from making an attack. (Which perhaps we kind of were.)

eat your veggies before dinner

Now that I’m off on my own, I still use this approach of snacking on veggies before and while making dinner, usually with some sort of delicious dip addition like hummus. It’s something I recommend to my AnneTheRD nutrition clients, too, because it’s a great way to sneak in some extra veggies and nutrition while everyone is hungry.
