Top 5 Healthy Go-To Snacks

It's National Snack Food Month!

Here are 5 Healthy Go-To Snacks:

Greek Yogurt: A 6 ounce serving of non-fat greek yogurt with a teaspoon of honey is not only a great snack, its also a great source of calcium, potassium, protein, zinc and vitamins B6 and B12. Don't forget that honey is also full of antioxidants.

Brussel Sprouts and Carrots: Try half a cup of brussel sprouts or carrots right before dinner to help curb your hunger. They are full of beneficial nutrients like fiber, Vitamin A and vitamin C.

Fresh Fruit: A cup of fresh fruit like blueberries, raspberries or apples will give you a boost of energy to get through the day.

Mixed Nuts: A handful of mixed nuts like walnuts, almonds and pistachios are packed with antioxidants, healthy oils and protein.

Nutrition Bars: Although nutrition bars are an easy and quick snack choice make sure that you choose bars that are minimally processed and contain a good amount of nutrition. Some excellent choices are: Luna Bars, Kind Bars and Kashi Fruit & Grain Bars... Stay away from Kashi's GoLean Chewy Bars.
