When hungry or bored, you – like most people – likely reach for the snacks that are closest to you without giving second thought. But not only is mindless eating a necessary habit to break, it’s failing to be aware of what snacks you’re reaching for that can also get you into trouble.
High-fat, salted, processed, and low-quality snacks can negatively affect your health, and that’s why being mindful and thinking ahead to procure healthy options is necessary.
Keep the following options in mind on your next grocery run to the store so that in-between meals you’re not settling for fast food or other junk-food snacks.
Instead of reaching for Doritos, you can bake or dehydrate your own lightly oiled and spiced vegetable chips.
Vegetables & Almond Butter
This is an easy, delicious snack. Cut up carrots, celery, and any other vegetables you love, then store in a plastic bag. Take this snack to-go or keep within easy reach in your fridge next to some fresh-made and organic hummus or almond butter.
Kids can’t get enough of it, and neither can you. Made without butter and tons of salt, you can enjoy this treat with some nutritional yeast and spices like turmeric to reduce inflammation and boost the fiber in your diet.
Nature’s perfect snack can be found almost anywhere. On a budget? Grab lesser expensive fruits like bananas, apples, and oranges.
Nuts & Seeds
A handful of almonds or sunflower seeds can inhibit hunger and boost your Vitamin E and B intake.
These are only some of the healthy snack alternatives that you can reach for in-between meals, but opting for these delicious options will positively benefit your health. Please like and share this post with your friends and family!!!
