Healthy Snack Ideas

Guest post written by Tanya Harris of www.MyFood.co.uk.

Summary: Is unhealthy snacking keeping you from losing weight? Stock your fridge with these delicious bites to help keep you on track.

The Rules

Following a diet is hard enough for anybody, no matter what the aim. Most of us find it impossible not to eat after 6 p.m., have a big breakfast early or drink at least two liters of water a day. However, these requirements are extremely vital for your success in losing weight. If you are still in the beginning, you might slip off track every now and then. Here are a few suggestions for off-schedule snacks, which, most importantly, are healthy and allowed anytime.

An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Not only are apples healthy, but they are also considered a great substitute of all kinds of sweets, cakes, chocolates and everything rich of calories that you might want to resign to between meals. Their natural sweetness satisfies your desire for desserts and also contributes to the positive effect you want for your body. Moreover, its contents make you feel fresh and healthy. Apples lower the risks of getting livers, lungs and breast cancer, as well as Alzheimer and cholesterol issues. Another benefit is that apples can offer an energy boost stronger than coffee.

Fats?

Another popular snack among children, teenagers and happy-go-skinny people is chips. More health-conscious people replace it with wholesome nuts such as almonds, walnuts, Brazil and Cedar nuts. Although they are almost all a calorie-bomb, they are extremely nutritious and help the prevention of heart disease, development of brain and bone functions, and are rich in minerals and vitamins. It is essential to remember to always consume nuts in a raw state, not roasted, nor salted. Then, they will be a great contribution to your diet which betters the metabolism and helps you lose the unwanted weigh.

Yogurt

And a protein priority should not be ignored – yogurt and all kinds of dairy products should also be included in a balanced diet as they are a great source of proteins. In order to vary the taste and try something new, you can combine it with fresh nuts and fruits, which, as we mentioned, are no less healthy. As a result you will have a fabulously tasty snack of less than 150 calories that almost makes you forget about your desire for chocolate or cakes. Eating yogurt is a perfect way of giving the organism calcium and vitamins which are incredibly vital.

  4. Nice post - although a few points to consider:

    1.) Apples are indeed very good for you - although only in limited quantities. People often make the mistake of assuming that fruit is healthy in any quantities. This is simply not the case, as despite fruit being natural and containing lots of vitamins, it also contains a lot of sugar! And sugar is the number one reason why people get fat. Nevertheless, one apple a day is perfectly healthy.

    2.) Yoghurt - be careful, as yoghurt can contain a massive amount of sugar, especially flavoured ones e.g strawberry. The healthiest choice is full fat Greek yoghurt, which contains the lowest amount of sugar. Do not be put off by the fat - your body loves fat.
