With more time spent at home, there's more time to travel between your couch, bed, and fridge, debating if you're actually hungry or just eating because you're bored. By now, you've probably worked your way through one too many snacks, and you may have noticed that the buttons on your pants are starting to socially distance from each other. But, what do you do when the best way to avoid touching your face is by holding a snack in each hand? Easy, switch to healthy snacking!
