Between the meal hunger pangs make us consume far too many calories than we generally consume in the whole day. The reason, we quickly grab something easy to reach like Potato chips, namkeens, Sweets, Chocolates, fried food like Samosa, etc. Here are some healthy snack ideas for you to avoid those extra calories and stay healthy :
Go for a handful of nuts. Mix in Almonds, Walnuts, Pistachios, Raisins and Pumpkin seeds. Avoid Cashewnuts.
A bowl of mix fruits. Apple, pear, some grapes, melon, orange… throw in whichever fruit you like.
A bowl of Salad. Mix in Carrots, celery, cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, roasted peppers. Use vinegar or lemon based dressing.
Whole wheat crackers with Peanut Butter. Keep a small pack of Peanut butter and whole wheat crackers in your handbag so this is the first thing you can reach out to even when traveling.
Keep a few packets of instant oatmeal. Ready in a few minutes, fewer calories, healthy and you will feel full for a few hours.
Boiled eggs or Omelette
Use egg whites and throw in some vegetables. Cooked in a non-stick pan with just a little oil, the omelet is a quick and healthy recipe. Boiled eggs are always a great option.
Vegetable Raita or Yogurt
Yogurt is healthy and nutritious. Enjoy it as it is or adds some vegetables and/or fruits to make a raita.
Stay healthy with healthy food and some exercise.
