There is nothing wrong with snacking between meals, as long as its done in moderation. The key is to opt for foods that add nutritional value, doesn’t take away your appetite or turn into sugar.

Have you tried adding chickpeas to your diet? I know chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans) can be rather intimidating and yes they look like bird food haha, however chickpeas are quite tasty and filling, offering a ton of protein, fiber and other nutrients into your diet, without a lot of calories.
