Healthy Snack Ideas

Happy #wellnesswednesday! I wanted to share some healthy snack ideas with you that are simple and easy to pack, if needed. As Fall enters, many people are going back to school and are looking for some quick snack ideas. While it can be great to start off with a fulfilling breakfast and follow up with a yummy lunch, snacks are great because they can give you an extra ounce of energy between meals. These ideas can also be added to a lunch box as components of your meal.

Snacking has a bad reputation at times due to its association with unhealthy foods. According to Harvard, fast food and sugary snacks account for more than 80% of all advertising. Easy access, in particular, influenced their decisions. The reason snacking gets a bad rep because of the high sugar, additives, and are low in nutrients. It can be a fun journey trying out different options to ensure you enjoy what your meals. When we deprive ourselves of food, we become moody and lose energy. That is why having access to these types of snacks is essential. The benefits include increased energy and the ability to supplement nutrients. Snacking can also help balance blood sugar levels. Below, I provided some options.

I am a big snacker and making small changes has helped me a lot. For example, certain oils, such as sunflower oil or canola oil can often be found in chips and hummus which results in inflammation. Finding products without these additives is another way to improve our well-being. Switching from potato chips to raw vegetables is a small change that will eventually feel normal. It’s totally normal to indulge in treats that have high sugar content but incorporating healthy items in the midst of it allows your body to feel better in the long run.
