If you are looking for tasty healthy treats that will keep you full between meals, these 4 snacks below are just ideal!
Even if you are craving something sweet or need a fast snack on the run - these little healthy treats will do the trick:
1. ALMONDS + DARK CHOCOLATE
Almonds and dark chocolate just go together so well! Being lower in carbs and higher in protein means you'll be fuller a little longer, without excess fat and sugars, keeping your daily totals lower. By keeping a supply of nuts handy and dark chocolate around you can stay satisfied and fuller a little longer!
2. BANANA + PEANUT BUTTER
Another quick snack that is also fulfilling would be a few slices of banana with a nut butter, such as peanut or almond butter, on top. The nut butter provides healthy protein and the banana is rich in nutrients, such as vitamin B6, vitamin C, potassium and manganese. You don't want to eat too much as bananas and some nut butters do have sugars in them, which, when going overboard may add unintended weight. However, as a snack, especially between meals, this quick treat is healthier than a candy bar!
3. AVOCADO + ADD ONS
Avocado has so many nutrients and contains good "fats." Incorporating half an avocado into your diet each day promotes a healthy and consistent weight, while also offering essential vitamins for glowing skin and strong hair. It's no wonder it is a popular favorite on toast, with breakfast, or as a quick meal. Some other possible ways of eating avocado includes mashed with banana, or sunflower seeds sprinkled on top, and some people like their avocados with a sprinkle of lime and salt!
4. GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE
Going healthy doesn't mean you have to give up desserts completely! Fresh-baked cookies straight from the oven can still be a possibility for those who are gluten-intolerant or people who are reducing their carb and sugar intake. Look for them at the supermarket or make them yourself. Yum!
It's good to know healthy options are still available particularly when you're craving something sweet, but totally satisfying! With these healthy tasty snacks, feel free to indulge with no guilt involved!
