It鈥檚 inevitable that we get hungry during the day or afternoon. We have the need to satisfy cravings and we often tend to munch on junk foods rather than eat a substantive snack. The convenience of junk food makes it more tempting to indulge ourselves rather than eat something with high nutritional value. Here we鈥檝e gathered a list of healthy snacks for you to try.

TP 201808 Nutrition 05Almond Nuts

This crunchy snack is great for in-between meals. Almonds are packed with nutrients that are beneficial for our health. Packed with fiber, protein, and monosaturated fatty acids, this lowcarb snack reduces hunger while keeping you full. A handful of these nuts is enough for a mid-morning or afternoon snack.

TP 201808 Nutrition 02Greek Yogurt

A great way to load up on probiotics is eating a small cup of Greek yogurt. Microorganisms found in Greek yogurt, like bacteria and yeast help to keep our digestive system healthy. For those who are trying to lose weight, the high calcium content of Greek yogurt can assist in limiting fat production within the body.

TP 201808 Nutrition 03Dark Chocolate

If you鈥檙e craving for something sweet, dark chocolates - not the regular ones - are a nutritious treat. High cocoa content such as 70-85% dark chocolates are loaded with minerals. It is rich in fiber, iron, and magnesium. Since it is made from the seeds of cocoa tree, this treat is filled with antioxidants which are known to be among the most powerful. The recommended serving is roughly around 1 ounce or 30grams.

TP 201808 Nutrition 04Apple Slices

The old saying 鈥渁n apple a day, keeps the doctor away鈥 is indeed true. This fruit is loaded with vitamin C, potassium, fiber, and vitamin K to name a few. It has high fiber and high-water content making it good for digestion and weight loss. This fruit is great to snack on because of its crunchy texture and sweet-tangy taste. Don鈥檛 peel the skin since that is where most of its fibers are stored.

TP 201808 Nutrition 01Celery Sticks

Celery may be more common in vegetable dishes, but did you know that consuming celery sticks boosts digestion and weight loss? This excellent source of antioxidant has high water content and enzymes that provide many health 鈥 especially cardiovascular 鈥 benefits. Celeries are crunchy and if you鈥檙e feeling a bit more adventurous you can spread a bit of peanut butter for a more flavorful punch.

TP 201808 Nutrition 07Sweet Potato

This naturally sweet tasting potato can be served in various ways - baked, steamed, fried, or roasted. You鈥檒l never run out of ideas for eating them as snacks. Sweet potatoes are rich in beta carotene. It鈥檚 a great source of potassium, high in vitamin B6, and has high fiber content. It has fewer calories as compared to your regular potatoes, and it helps keep you full.

TP 201808 Nutrition 08Baby Carrots

Another ideal vegetable for snacking are baby carrots. You can eat them raw or steamed and this crunchy snack is packed with several vitamins and minerals. Recognized as a good source of beta-carotene, baby carrots are also known to improve eye sight.

 

Changing your snacking habits to these healthier food options will surely benefit your well-being in the long run. Aside from being jam-packed with nutrients, eating these foods can assist in weight loss and curb your junk food cravings. The key to snacking is maintaining the right amount of portion or serving, and avoid overeating.
