Need a crunchy, salty afternoon snack? You and me both. This one may seem a bit indulgent, but hear me out. A small and portion controlled serving of pretzels (crunchy, salty) balances perfectly with a small and portion controlled serving of cheese (salty, fatty, satiating). The key message here is portion controlled, which means we’re not mindlessly munching on pretzels straight from the bag or gnawing cheese right from the block. Instead, grab a handful of pretzels and put them on a plate or in a bowl, and dice up some cubes of a nice sharp cheese into bite-sized pieces. That there is about 30g / 1 oz of extra old cheddar, which is just about perfect for a snack.
