Here are some healthy snack ideas:
Nuts are packed full of protein and fiber, and are a rich source of vitamins E, B6 and folic acid. They are also high in healthy polyunsaturated fats (especially omega-3), but this means they are high in calories, so eat in moderation.
Low GI Foods
The best foods are the ones low in the glycaemic index (GI). This is because they provide a slow release energy into our bloodstream rather than a quick sugar rush that soon dips, leaving us feeling hungry again. This is beneficial for long-term health and can lower the risk of heart disease and diabetes, as well as helping to maintain weight loss.
Good low GI snack choices include:
Raw fruit and vegetables
Choose fruit as a healthy and satisfying snack.
Dark chocolate (in moderation)
Lots of studies have indicated that the flavonoids found in dark chocolate are powerful antioxidants. Cocoa has more phenolic phytochemicals and a higher antioxidant capacity than any other food, but processing of cocoa can remove many of these benefits.
