Fighting Hunger With A Snack Attack
10 great healthy snacks that will help fend of the spare tire
Healthy snacks can add fiber and nutrients to your diet without unwanted calories. They can give you an energy boost during the day and prevent you from overeating at meals. Planned snacking allows you to stick with a diet and avoid empty calories and overeating. By not skipping meals, the likelihood of snacking on high-calorie foods will be reduced.
You may feel regretful about snacking, but snacks aren't necessarily bad. In fact, healthy snack foods several times a day can be beneficial. Here's how:
Binge control. If eating a piece of fruit or raw vegetables keeps you from taking second or third helpings at your next meal, you may actually consume fewer total calories for the day.
Extra energy and nutrients. Traditional, made-at-home meals often lose out to busy schedules. A grab-and-go snack can be the difference between some nourishment and none at all.
Control Hunger Pangs. Helps keep your hunger levels down to a minimum and avoid feeling deprived.
Control Insulin Levels. Helps keep you blood sugar levels even.
With proper portions and healthy food choices, snacking can enhance, rather than hurt your diet. Think of a snack as a "mini meal" that will help you have a healthy diet, rather than as an opportunity to consume treats. Healthy snack foods will provide you with a great tool for permanent weight loss.
10 Healthy Snack Foods:
The inside of the grape attains a nearly creamy consistency when frozen. The sweetness is also magnified! I have been freezing grapes for years now and they are on the top of my list for healthy snacks.
Hard Boiled Eggs
Hard boiled eggs are an excellent source of protein, simple to prepare and each one only has about 76 calories. Eggs are also very nutritious. They don't just contain fat (yolk) and protein (white). In fact, they contain a wide array of essential vitamins and minerals.
Broccoli florets are a quick and healthy snack that contains vital nutrients for your body. Broccoli is an excellent source of the vitamins K, C, and A, as well as folate and fiber. Broccoli is a very good source of phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and the vitamins B6 and E.
Sliced Chicken Breast
Cold sliced chicken breast tastes amazing and is high in protein, low in fat and has virtually no carbs.
Hummus, a nutritious blend of chickpeas, olive or canola oil, pureed sesame seeds (also called "tahini"), lemon juice, spices, and garlic is a nutritious dip or spread.
Tomatoes are low in Sodium, and very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. They're also a good source of Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Potassium and Manganese.
They are an excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids and are also rich in vitamins and minerals that help us to stay healthy. Walnuts are high in poly and monounsaturated fats and especially linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid. Those two acids cannot be synthesized by our body and must be provided daily.
Just mix a can of water-packed Albacore tuna with a tablespoon of nonfat mayonnaise and you have a snack that contains over 30 grams of protein.
Apples contain (fiber, flavonoids, and fructose) which all lend themselves to the ability to keep us healthy. Apples are a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C.
Pickles are crunchy and delicious but did you know pickles are nutritious, as well? Naturally packed with vitamins, pickles are a fat free and low calorie snack. In fact, the average-sized dill spear is only 15 calories!.
Here's to your guilt free snaking.
Have an excellent day.
