Forget the Junk Food: Healthy Snacks that are Worth Craving

Forget the Junk Food: Healthy Snacks that are Worth Craving  1

Eating less processed foods that are often prepackaged can change the way your body looks and feels. Of course, you may already know this. However, the urge to indulge in eating unhealthy foods is easier than deciding to eat healthier.

Therefore, meal planning and creating a grocery list of healthy food options is ideal, especially if you are always on the go.

Here are a few snack alternatives that are worth craving instead of the junk food.

Bananas. Not only are they affordable and improves digestion. Bananas will help in weight loss as they are an excellent source of fiber and potassium.

Ginnybakes Organic & Gluten Free Cookie GoPacks. Put an end to your chocolate craving with these delicious bite-worthy cookies.  From coconut oatmeal to chocolate chip macadamia, you can select a variety of flavors for no more than 100 calories.

Almonds. They are small enough to keep in your bag and to take care of your craving for something crunchy. A single serving provides a healthy dose of fiber, protein, and monounsaturated fats.

Hard Boil Eggs. A carton of eggs does not cost much. Also, they are a protein source, another fat-fighting nutrient.

Stretch Island All Natural Fruit Strips. Just like Fruit Roll-Ups. However, without the added sugars and calories, made up of 45 calories and only 7 grams of sugar, this snack is preferable.

Despite the urge to grab the Cheetos or candy bar at the store or vending machine. Try working on disciplining your mind and having an attitude to eating well. Making these small changes over time can help you make better decisions on the type of foods you eat.
