One of the greatest temptations people have when they have decided to eat healthy is snacking between meals. Most times when we take a snack, we end up taking stuff that is not exactly healthy. In an attempt to combat this, some people vigorously try to do away with snacking. Needless to say, they than most often fail.
Rather than embarking on a futile attempt at doing away with snacking, why not simply look for healthy ways of snacking? This is what this blog is about. I want to give you a healthy snacks list. With this, you do not have to feel guilty every time you snack.
One of the very first things we would add to our healthy snacks list is fruits. A lot of fruits can be eaten on the go with their skin on. They do not require any special preparation, just wash them and eat. Ensure you always have some fresh fruits readily available.
Next on our list are nuts. There are many different types of nuts and seeds that are great for snacking. Examples include cashew nuts which are low in fat and contain antioxidants, almond nuts which contain healthy protein, peanuts which are a great source of protein, vitamins and even resveratrol which has anti-aging properties. There are other seeds and nuts that are great for snacking. Add these to the list.
Let us quickly run through some other foods that are healthy and great for snacking. Your healthy snacks list can have: Low-fat yogurt, puddings (sugar and fat free), hard boiled eggs (you can have a number of these ready at all times), pickles, pretzels, animal crackers, veggies, cheese just to name a few.
All you need to bear in mind is that the idea behind a healthy snacks list is having foods that can be snacked on without compromising on a healthy diet. It actually is smart snacking.
With these fun food items and some others, you may discover on your own, you would not need to struggle with snacking and you also would not need to sacrifice your healthy diet on the altar of snacks.
