Snacking healthy: here's how to do it

Sure, we have read so many articles demonizing snacks. It’s possibly not good if you’re eating empty calorie junk food or snacking 2-5 times in between meals.

Otherwise, snacks are actually a good way to keep you healthy.  Here are some readily available and good snacks for you:

1. Nuts

If you’re hungry but dinner is still half an hour away, you can munch on some nuts.  These are high in protein and fiber. But note that too much of these will mean it can be high in fat.

2. Greek yogurt

If have issues with lactose, you might want some Greek yogurt because the whey content is removed. Just look for the plain ones.  Pop in some banana or kiwi fruit slices, and you’re on your way to making your digestive tract happy. 

3. Cucumber and celery

If you love veggies, cut up some cucumber and celery sticks. Dip in hummus. Hummus has garlic and olive oil that can improve heart health.  

Cucumber and celery are also high in nutrients and may help lower blood sugar and keep you regular.

4. Chocolate

Who doesn’t love chocolates? But get the dark one as it is loaded with flavonoids that lowers blood pressure and reduce heart disease risk. 

5. Eggs

These come in different varieties: the regular ones, and others with Omega-3, or the more expensive organic ones. Whichever you buy, just boil them for around 8-10 minutes.  Sprinkle those hard-boiled eggs with salt and pepper, and you’re good.

So the next time you feel you need to eat in between meals, just can snack that guilt away.
