Eating healthy is a great lifestyle to choose. You will typically benefit from weight loss, wight management, energy, and just simply feeling a lot better.
One of the greatest challenges with maintaining a healthy lifestyle is in between meals. How do you choose what to snack on to keep your appetite under control?
Here is a great source for a healthy snacks list:
After breakfast and before lunch
Fruits and vegetables are great snacking options to place on hour healthy snacks list. They require very minimal preparation and you can easily consume them on the go. They are also low calorie options, rich in essential vitamins and minerals, such as fiber.
If you are a person needing a little more substance to your snacking, add nut spreads such as almond butter. They are a great source of protein to help with sustainability before lunch.
After lunch and before dinner
Take a hand full of your favorite nuts and enjoy. Nuts are packed with fiber, protein, and healthy fats. Keep in mind, the benefits are realized in small portions. Too much of a good thing can definitely yield adverse results. Keep your snacking to a hand full and drink water to help with the full feeling. Nuts are an essential item for your healthy snacks list.
After dinner and before bed
A common snack/dessert after dinner is Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is high in protein and low in sugar content. Greed yogurt is more filling and a low calorie snack. If you need to add a little flavor to plain Greek yogurt, choose fresh fruits or a very small amount of honey. This will improve the flavor and give you just what you need to survive through the night. Greek yogurt is a must have on your healthy snacks list.
Healthy snacking does not have to be a challenge. It can be just what you need to complete your healthy eating plan.
