How Often Do You Snack?

How Often Do You Snack? You just had that sinfully rich ice cream from Martine Lambert in Rue Cler for dessert and now you’re craving for those delicate artisanal pastries from Carl Marletti in Rue Censier in Paris. Paris is indeed a haven for all lovers of fine food and of course, all the fine things in life. And having a snack to go with your mid afternoon coffee is a practice beloved by Parisians and many cultures all around the world. Most of us try to get in three meals a day (some skip breakfast), so we compensate by snacking during the day. So here’s a little secret, you can actually snack more than once during the day and not ruin your diet. When you want to have a little snack and you want treat yourself, you can also visit Popelini in Rue Debelleyme for the best profiteroles.
Following a healthy lifestyle by watching what you eat is a bit of a challenge. Like playing poker, you need focus and discipline. You can now play poker without having to dress up and go to a real casino. But if you’re looking for the thrill of a live poker game, you can join the tables at Casino Croisette in Cannes. You can be a poker expert in no time when you follow these tips, and you can also be a master of your own diet when you know when the best time for snacking is. Always keep in mind that you can snack anytime you want as long as your last meal is at least four hours ago. If you exceed more than that, you risk of eating more than you should during your next meal. If you must snack on something substantial yet big on flavor you can try the famous artisanal baguettes and loaves from Pain d’Epis just around the Eiffel Tower and have some delicious savory treats like their fougasse and baguette royale.
Most importantly, you should snack after one hour of intense workout. Whether if it’s cardio, judo or pilates, your snack should be protein rich or you can also load up on carbohydrates. If you want to go the healthier route, you can have a protein shake, a tuna on whole wheat sandwich or hummus and pita that can be just as satisfying. You should also refrain from snacking between breakfast and lunch. People who snack between those meals also tend to snack during the midday so the calories add up and so does your weight. If you want to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, you can check out the organic goods and produce at L’Epicerie Generale in Rue de Verneuil, Paris.
