Healthy Snacking Tips
Snacking and eating healthy doesn’t have to be difficult and we want you to follow a couple helpful tips. Take a look at the information below and challenge yourself to put these tips to good use.
Snack on Protein
Snacks that include lean protein are the best. Protein is an essential nutrient that fuels your metabolism while also satisfying your appetite. The more snacks you have with protein, the healthier you will feel.
Eat a Handful of Fruit or Vegetables a Day
Fresh fruit and vegetables are an essential part of a healthy diet. The more you snack on them, the better off you are. Try to eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible and you’ll feel the healthy rewards.
Choose Snacks with Limited Ingredients
The more processed your food is, the less healthy it can be. Start to pay attention to the ingredients that make up the snacks you like to eat. An easy, healthy choice can be as simple as cutting out foods with a long list of preservatives, artificial sweeteners and flavor enhancers.
Eat Your Favorite Snacks in Moderation
It’s OK to eat snacks if you are conscious about the amount you eat. There are so many healthy snacks out there and it’s important to understand the right portion to eat. Snacks should be little meals that complement the 3 meals you have throughout the day.
