If you find yourself with a grumbling stomach, it’s probably time to find a snack to eat. Unfortunately, most of the snacks out on the market are full of preservatives, sugar, and artificial ingredients that wreak havoc on your body, and more importantly don’t provide you with essential nutrients to power through your day. You may not realize the importance of snacking throughout the day, but it improves energy levels, mood, and productivity. Having something to graze on throughout the day is so significant considering that 94% of Americans snack at least once a day, according to a report. Here are a few healthy snack ideas to add to your daily routine:
Hard Boiled Eggs
Hard Boiled Eggs are a grab-and-go staple, and you can prep them the night before to eliminate spending time making breakfast in the morning. They are low-calorie but very nutrient dense, making the perfect morning snack to start your day. Hard boiled eggs are packed with protein, rich in Vitamin B, zinc, selenium, calcium, and other antioxidants like lutein, zeaxanthin, and choline. Choline is an important nutrient that most people don’t get enough of, but assists in building cell membranes and signals molecules in the brain.
Red, Green, Orange, Yellow, Oh My… Bell peppers come in many different shapes and sizes for your enjoyment. Red peppers pack the most nutrition due to the fact that they stay on the vine the longest. Green peppers are harvested earlier before they have a change to turn yellow, orange, and then red. Fresh, raw bell peppers are water-rich, and contain small amounts of carbs, sugar, and fiber. Loaded with vitamin B, C, and E and potassium, red bell peppers make a great healthy snack. Pair it with guacamole or hummus for a flavorful kick!
Avocado on toast, oh what the perfect pair. Avocado pairs well with just about anything, but it is incredibly nutritious and loaded with fiber. Whatever you decide to put your avocado on (or you can eat it by itself), you will not be disappointed. Avocados are known to contain more potassium than bananas, and people who eat them regularly tend to be healthier than people who do not, according to studies. They also provide lutein and omega-3 fatty acids which are great for general wellness. Since avocados contain large amounts of fiber, they can also prevent constipation and promote a healthy digestive system.
