On one side we all plan for our regular three-course meal every day, but on the other hand, we tend to forget our mid-meal hunger. Snacking unhealthy during your mid-meal cravings causes unwanted weight gain and other health issues. Keeping a check on those extra calories, you intake will take you an extra effort. So here are a few foods you can munch healthy during your mid-meal hunger:
Handful Almonds: Snacking smart with almonds is a great way to start leading a healthy lifestyle. Instead of consuming unwholesome snacks, Almonds are a source of 15 nutrients such as vitamin E, dietary fiber, protein, etc., which can be easily substituted. As an easy snack option giving a twist of taste is another quick option. Almond benefits in not just your weight management but also heart health and diabetes.
Fresh fruits: Instead of consuming tinned fruits opt for fresh ones. A better way of choosing fruits would be going for the seasonal fruits. Try avoiding the consumption of juices. Even the freshly made juices are high on sugar and therefore eating them directly would be a better choice.
Green leafy salad: Pay attention to the greens! It is mostly said that eating salads before a meal is a wiser choice as it tends to make you feel full early. In order not add those extra kilos one can act wisest by fooling your brain and gut making it feel fuller. Add to your salad that extra virgin olive oil to make it healthier and tastier.
So don’t let you mid meal hunger take over your stern decisions of healthy eating. Choose wisely!
