When snacking, I try to go for the natural homemade snacks. Prepackaged diet food is more convenient, but I think fresher is better. Also, I know what I am getting. A lot of products say all natural but can you trust the label.
Make Your Snack Bags
If you get home from the store, wash your fruit and start to divide it up. I like to dry the fruit and put in plastic sandwich bags to take with me when I go out. Point a paper towel in the bag to keep fresh. You can make blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, etc. Anything your favorite fruit is you can make your packages. Nuts and seeds are also good snacks to take with you when out. Just put in measured serving sizes, and you have your snack.
I like to boil organic eggs and have on hand for snacks also. They are great protein snacks. Studies are finding that they are healthier than previously thought. Boiled is a good way to have them also because there are no extra calories from any cooking oils.
Raw vegetables are great to snack on between meals. Carrots, celery, cucumbers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and other veggies make excellent low-calorie snacks. You are also helping your body get healthy while you lose weight
Organic peanut butter or almond butter make great snacks on sprouted bread. I love almond butter on toast. I sometimes have this for breakfast too. It is a satisfying snack.
Popcorn is a very good snack because it is filling and high in fiber. I would recommend getting a hot air popper or using a large pan with a lid and maybe popping in coconut oil. No microwave popcorn because we are finding out it is not very healthy at all. Also, try to find organic popcorn or the very least make sure it is no-go.
Oatmeal is a good snack too. I always try to get steel cut oats because it has the natural shell on it. The fiber is better, and it has more nutrients left in it. I prefer Bob’s Steel Cut Oats over most brands because they taste better. Have them with a little pure stevia or honey and add spices like cinnamon if you prefer.
These are some good healthy snacks to keep you on your diet without starving and will add vitamins and minerals to your body. Enjoy!
