Any healthy holiday snacks?


Question from Morganna: I love to snack but I'm not sure that's wise. Are there any good holiday snacks that are healthy for people with breast cancer?
Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. I love to snack too! In fact, I say that I snack three times a day! Any healthy food, as long as it is in context of your caloric content for the day is fine to snack on: whole-grain crackers with hummus, some fruit with peanut butter, or soy nuts and raisins, any fresh fruit or vegetable, is perfectly fine. But again, it's a question of what you're eating during a 24-hour period compared with how many calories you need.

On Wednesday, November 15, 2006, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Eating and Drinking Through the Holidays. Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. and moderator Jennifer Sabol, M.D. answered your questions about how to stay healthy during the most hectic, high-calorie time of year.
