A question was asked several days here on Harris Reviews: What is the definition of an Unhealthy Snack? Lets face the facts, we have snacked & cheated at one time or another in our lives. Often time we obtain snacking confused with pure junk food.
Eating apple & pear slices is healthy, yet when you mix it with peanut butter that is high in sugar & loaded with other additives & preservatives it becomes dangerous & damaging. There are things that will create a healthy body for you if you just stick to what is satisfactory for you. Celery is great, yet when mixed with other things like ranch dressing it can become kind of questionable.
Snacking on Broccli is one of my favorites yet i do have a tendancy to break out the blue cheese or ranch dressing. But that’s just me.
When we do things like this what we are really telling ourselves is we need some flavor, some taste, some spice to our diets. Going back to the example of apples & pears. This is a tremendous combo, yet instead of peanut butter, try some unsalted almonds or peanuts. They taste tremendous together. Below is a list of Harris Reviews healthy snacks: Enjoy
Dried Fruits: Raisins, apricots, figs, & dates don’t have the water content of fresh fruit, so they aren’t quite as filling, says Maria Walls, senior nutritionist for Weight Watchers International.
Tuna Salad in a Pouch: The Starkest Lunch To-Go, for example, has 3 ounces of tuna, mayo, relish, & six crackers, plus a spoon to mix it all up. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated & weighs in at a relatively small 210 calories.
Nuts: ”They’re tremendous snack items because they’re so filling,” says Katherine Tallmadge, spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. Walnuts are desirable because they’re high in omega-3 fatty acids that protect against heart disease. Limit yourself to 1 ounce — approximately 160 calories.
Fruit Cookies: Two cookies have approximately 110 calories & 2.5 grams of fat. The low-fat varieties have 90 calories & almost no fat
Single-Serving Soups: Look for an 8-ounce serving that has no more than 480 milligrams of sodium, says Connie Diekman, director of nutrition at Washington University in St. Louis. You can find a nutritious cup of soup with 100 to 200 calories.
