Snacks get a bad rap.
And it’s true that your efforts at living a healthy lifestyle can be so easily sabotaged by the wrong snack choices: excessive quantities, low-quality junk foods and the sort of mindless grazing we can so easily fall into – especially when sleep deprived!
But, at The Healthy Mummy and Lose Baby Weight, we believe that snacks can be more friend than foe; it’s all about snacking smarter.
Which is why we have created our top pick of the Top 200 Healthy Snacks and recipes ebook so you have an easy reference guide on your computer and mobile device – and so you can print off if you need to.
Why snacking helps weight loss
Snacking is essential for keeping you feeling energised, taking in nutrients during the day, boosting your metabolism and helping you lose weight. But there is a big difference between healthy snacks and unhealthy snacks. If you eat processed junk food as snacks it will not help your health or energy or weight loss but choose healthy snacks and you will give your health and weight loss a boost and not feel like you are even on a ‘diet’.
Some of our favourite snacks are things like raw veggies dipped into hummous, fruit with greek yoghurt, sardines on wholegrain toast, cottage cheese on ryvitta topped with sliced capsicum – all delicious, healthy and easy to prepare.
The key to successful snacking is always making sure you plan ahead and have the right foods in your kitchen – the minute you are disorganised and run out of good foods and instead find junk food you will start to fall off the healthy eating wagon. Which is why we always advise to no keep any junk in your house.
The right healthy eating snacks – made with quality ingredients, in reasonably sized portions – can keep your metabolism firing at maximum efficiency and help to fulfill your body’s nutritional requirements.
And our new Healthy Snacking ebook contains more than 200 healthy recipes and healthy snack ideas, from savoury nibbles and delicious dips, to decadently sweet treats. All of them are quick and easy to prepare – perfect for hungry and time-poor mums!
We hope you enjoy the recipes in this book and find it a useful tool in your journey to a healthier lifestyle.
