    UPDATE: Just as busy over the weekend as you are during the week? Read up on which snacks you should be grabbing at your local Duane Reade. This article was originally published on February 15, 2012.

    It's time we redefine "fast food" — not because it isn't delish, but because McLunches aren't doing anything to help our health or energy levels (not to mention our waistlines). Instead of going for no-good-for-you grub the next time you need food in a flash, try something that will actually fill you up in a good way. Enter Keri Gans, nutritionist and author of The Small Change Diet, who let us in on some tasty alternatives. Don't freak: Remember, we're talking small changes here, and, of course, that means staying practical. The solution?

So, go ahead, you've finally got permission to satisfy the munchies.
