A balanced and healthy diet is something we all need to try and maintain. This can be challenging when you don’t know many healthy snacks to try. Here are 10 tasty healthy snacks you should try if you want a healthier lifestyle.
1. Greek yogurt
Greek yogurt makes a perfect tasty healthy snack because you can combine it with various things. You can add Greek yogurt to fruit or with breakfast bars. It is also a great source of calcium and protein.
Ryvita is a great snack you can eat when you are feeling peckish. It is a great substitute for biscuits as it is way healthier, and you can add different toppings to it.
3. Bowl of fruit
From a young age we are always told to eat lots of fruit and make sure we meet our 5-a-day. Having a fruit salad is an easy way to get your 5-a-day. You can add banana’s, strawberries, kiwis, grapes, blueberries, etc. Dark berry fruits are one of the best sources of antioxidants.
Smoothies are a great tasty healthy snack that you can even drink on the go. You can also add milled chia seeds to smoothies to give you that extra boost. If you want to gain a bit of wait you could also add Whey protein to your smoothie.
Omelettes are a good source of protein since they are made from eggs. You can eat omelettes with goat cheese and herbs. This healthy snack is something you could eat in the morning for breakfast. Have this with a nice warm cup of tea to help kick start your day.
Flapjacks are a really tasty snack! You might be thinking flapjacks aren’t healthy snacks but using minimal sugar and golden syrup makes them a lot healthier. You can also add nuts and dried fruit into flapjacks which are healthy. You can make this tasty healthy snack easily and munch on it when you are feeling peckish.
7. Brown bread sandwiches
Replace your white bread with brown bread and make a healthy sandwich. Use low fat butter and add lettuce and tomatoes as a filling, it is healthier than adding ham or chicken for a healthy snack. Seeded bread and wholemeal bread are also a great substitute for white bread. This simple switch could make all the difference.
8. Organic vegetables
Vegetables are very healthy so why not eat them as a snack instead of just as a side? Organic vegetables are healthier because there are far less preservatives on them. They are more pricey but they are worth it since they benefit your health in the long run. My favourite vegetable snack are carrot sticks. You can even buy pre-made carrot sticks if you are feeling slightly lazy and don’t want to make them yourself. Vegetables are the easiest healthy snacks!
Who doesn’t love a good salad?! The best thing about salads is that you can add a bit of protein in them by adding chicken in it. I tend to make my salads using: lettuce, cucumber, chicken nuggets with mayonnaise. Salad is a great healthy snack to have because it can be quite filling. If you don’t want to add chicken to your salad you can add cheese instead.
People tend to forget about water. Instead of drinking fizzy drinks and juices, drink water. Substitute the bottles of alcohol for bottles of water. Water is not only good for your health, but it is also great for your skin. It takes care of your body on the inside and the outside. It helps you in more ways than one.
