30 Surprisingly Simple Snacks

Posted on: November 6th, 2012 by Jeff Ritter No Comments


Healthy snacks can provide energy and nutrients to refuel your body and brain between meals. Snacks can also help you meet your daily nutrient requirements and prevent you from overeating at your next meal. Although most people grab a granola bar, pretzels or something out of a vending machine, those insulin-spiking processed products can actually leave you hungrier than before. Start making better snack choicesby creating balanced snacks or “mini meals” filled with natural, whole foods and avoid man-made, processed, products. It’s also important to plan snacks ahead of time. Waiting to find food until you’re “starving” is a great way to make a poor nutrition decision. Be proactive by preparing some of the snack suggestions below on the weekend so you have food on hand to grab during a busy week.
