The Benefits of Snacking
We all have mixed feelings about snacking; some people avoid it because high calorie foods can be tempting! But there are healthier alternatives that can provide positive benefits such as regulating moods, preventing overeating during meals, and maintaining blood sugar levels. All Star Health has made it easy to have healthy snacks throughout the day without a calorie overload. Just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it can’t be as delicious as a high calorie snack. Listed below are products available at AllStarHealth.com that will power you up…
1. Nutrition Bars are a popular choice because they are convenient and they come in many varieties. The Rx Bar for example, is one of the many bars that we carry that have a variety of choices in flavors and nutrients. They keep their ingredients short and simple but satisfyingly healthy.
- Bars containing more than 6g of fiber will make you feel full for a longer period of time
- They should have at least 15g of protein (make sure protein amount is higher than calories)
- Should contain no more than 10g of sugar (Some bars contain more sugar than others which is why it’s important to read labels while deciding on protein bars.)
2. Seeds are an excellent choice!
Including seeds to your diet will provide health benefits that will assist in brain performance, immune system, heart function, and vision support because they contain a good source of protein, iron, good fat, vitamins, and minerals. They don’t require refrigeration which also makes them a dependable option whenever you are on the go! Try Chia seeds or Now Raw Pumpkin Seeds Unsalted 16 oz for a super easy and nutritional treat! They taste great on their own, but taste even better when you add them to a salad, yogurt, smoothies, or fruit.
3. Eat more Peanut Butter!
Peanut Butter gives us protein, vitamin A , vitamin D, calcium, and magnesium. Plus it tastes great! It’s no wonder the average American consumes three pounds of peanut butter every year!
4. Just add protein powder.
You don’t have to be an athlete to consume protein powder. There are many different types of protein choices for ordinary people or for those who have difficulty meeting their protein requirements through diet. Try our BodyStrong 100% Whey Protein in your smoothies, milk, or coffee!
Keep in mind that everything we consume gets broken down into energy and protein rich snacks will help you fill fuller through out the day. At AllStarHealth.com, we have affordable choices for your healthy on-the-go diet. Get snackin’!
