3 Options to make Healthy Snacking Part of Your Healthy Lifestyle

We told your recently that, even if you eat an otherwise healthy, balanced diet, and generally keep yourself in good shape, not eating healthy snacks might be keeping you from reaching your health and wellness goals.

Snacks are an important part of a healthy diet. They help hold back the hunger pangs that can make you to overeat, and they can help fill in the gaps when you’re on the go and can’t eat a regular meal.

To give you an idea of what ‘healthy snacking’ means, here are a few mouth-watering options to whet your appetite.

Kale, Quinoa & Hummus Wrap

If high-nutrition foods were athletes, this would be the all-star game. This wrap is low in fat, high in protein and, best of all it’s delicious. Kale delivers more than its fair share of cancer-fighting agents and healthy doses of iron, calcium, anti-inflammatories and vitamins A & C. Quinoa delivers lots of fibre and is a great source of lysine, magnesium and manganese. Hummus is as good a plant-based source of protein as there is, it helps to fill you up so you don’t overeat and it boosts bone health, heart health and your energy levels.

Golden Smoothie

The turmeric in a Golden Smoothie isn’t just for great flavour. It contains powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. The medicinal properties credited to turmeric include helping to prevent and/or treat cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and heart disease.

Coconut Loaf

You may have heard of the health benefits of coconut, but the list is still amazing. Among other properties, coconut helps improve your immune system, energy levels, digestion, blood sugar, your hair and skin; and it reduces your chances of some cancers, heart disease, kidney disease and bladder infections.

So how does that bag of chips sound now?

And, also unlike the bag of chips, these delicious, nutritious snacks are made especially for you from the freshest ingredients and delivered to your door. Check out our healthy snack delivery in Toronto or call our Fit Food Nutritional Concierge to learn more.

  1. Awesome ideas!

    I always tell the readers there’s nothing wrong with snacks. They can be best friends of our health and your post nails it.

    Also, when the situation calls for a quick fix, everyone can grab a fresh fruit or some nuts and seeds. My favorite snack is banana+roasted peanuts. Super-nutritious and super-tasty!

    Thanks a lot and keep it up!
