18 Healthy Snacks You Need In Your Life

18 Healthy Snacks You Need In Your Life | Utterly-Amazing.com

To snack or not to snack, that may be the problem. Healthy snacking improves overall health, curbs cravings, fights weight gain, regulates mood, boosts brain power and gives you the energy you need to keep going all day. Many snacks provide calories, saturated fat, sugar or salt and are low in important nutrients. If you prefer to eat “small and often”, remember that the “small” is usually more important than the “often”. A healthy snack generally has about 60-100 calories – about what you’d get from a piece of fruit, a slice of raisin bread or 1/2 cup of low-fat yogurt. If you’re anything like me, I find myself on Pinterest at late hours pinning all these health, fitness and detoxes. Here’s 18 Healthy Snacks you should try for you and your family!

  19. I eat chick peas all the time. As homemade hummus. Cold right out of the can. Warmed. Mashed into ‘burgers’ and even roasted. They are so much yum!

  20. Oh my goodness! I have just recently learned about the wonders of roasted chick peas and I absolutely love them! They’re one of the few snack foods that my entire family likes!
