Although some nutritionists advise avoiding snacks between meals, some studies have shown that snacks are good for satiating and preventing you from eating fast food or overeating at lunch and dinner.
However, it is about balanced snacks.
Apple and peanut butter or almond butter
Eat apple with peanut butter or almond butter. Apple contains low calories and very nutritious fiber, while butter provides a mixture of protein and healthy fats that will saturate you for a long time. Since butter has more than enough calories, beware of the abundance. Just one teaspoon is enough.
Vegetables and humus
Mix your favorite vegetables with two to three teaspoons of humus. The higher the vegetables, the more nutrients you will consume. We recommend a mix of red peppers, carrots, cucumber and broccoli. Vegetables have low calories, lots of fiber and nutrients, including antioxidants, while humus contains a mixture of healthy fats and proteins.
Frappe with solid yogurt
In a blender, put less fat yogurt, add strawberries, bananas and flaxseed. This snack will provide you with plenty of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats. Flaxseed contains omega-3 fatty acids that are good for the heart, while keeping fruit full longer.
Whole grain crackers with cheese and chopped tomatoes
Buy your favorite crackers from whole grains, put a thin slice of cheese and a slice of tomato on them. From whole grains you will get a lot of nutrients and a little fat. Cheese will provide you with protein, calcium and some healthy fats. Tomato will give you a dose of vitamin C and the antioxidant lycopene.
Favorite vegetable soup
Soups are a perfect snack if they are nutritious. The bean soup is best because it contains a mixture of protein, carbohydrates and nutrients. Besides it, good soups with peas or lentils are good.
