Snack Pack

by Nick Burns

Some HIV meds must be taken with a meal or a snack; others lack food restrictions, but popping  them with a nibble can help cut down on nausea. Nutritionist Silbersmith offers up four HIV-med side dishes. Check with your doctor for munching orders—then dig in.

  1. Two tablespoons of natural peanut butter—look for Smucker’s Reduced-Fat. All-Natural—smeared on a few whole-grain crackers.
  2. One ounce of low-fat cheese (that’s about the size of your thumb) spread on a slice of whole wheat toast. It’s best to buy your cheese from the deli counter—it’s less processed and better for you.
  3. Two tablespoons of wheat germ stirred into a small container (six ounces) of low-fat yogurt. Wheat germ is high in fiber and vitamin E, and it gives the yogurt a nice texture.
  4. A handful of nuts. Almonds can help lower your cholesterol, and Brazil nuts may help prevent men from developing prostate cancer. If you’ve got high blood pressure, be sure you grab a fistful of the low-salt mix.
