Remember your parents telling you that snacking in between meals was not good for you? Part of your goals to get healthier may include stopping your unhealthy snacking habit.
While gorging on junk food can be detrimental to your body, there are many healthy snacks to consider. Now, your parents were only partially correct! Some snacks may even help you lose weight! Try some of these tasty treats.
While fruit can supply some necessary sugars to your body, they are all not created equal. The sugar in fruit is still sugar, and too much can cause your blood sugar levels to spike and affect your insulin. You can still eat your favorite fruit in moderation.
Instead, opt for berries. The natural sugars in berries react differently in your body than other fruits. For a yummy snack, top some low-fat yogurt with a bunch of your favorite berries.
Cheese is the ultimate comfort food. Snacking on small portions of cheese can give you the protein and calcium that your bones need. There are so many varieties of cheeses, you will never get bored at snack time.
Having a little snack between meals can prevent energy slumps during the day and discourage you from overeating during meals. Help your body out and grab a snack!
