Keep in mind, too, that creating convenient, easy-to-carry snacks for yourself will keep you away from vending machines and pit stops for calorie-rich, fatty or sugary snacks. Here are some great healthy and convenient ideas for snacks that you should consider adding to your healthy weight loss program.
Hard Boiled Eggs Offer Portable Protein
These little food gems pack a lot of power in a small package with six grams of protein and 15% of your recommended daily allowance of Riboflavin. One egg is just seventy calories, so it’s a great addition to your healthy diet plan. Plus, they’re a super convenient, easily portable snack to take with you to the office, the park or to have ready to go in your refrigerator on the weekends. It is important to note that eggs do contain a lot of cholesterol, so it’s best to only have them a couple of times during the week or to eat only the egg whites. If you have any health concerns, you should check with your doctor about adding eggs to your diet.
Apple Slices can Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
It’s been said a million times: an apple a day keeps the doctor away. That’s because apples have plenty of Vitamin C. But the reason they’re a great addition to a healthy weight loss program is because the fiber and natural sugars help satisfy your sweet tooth without leading to more cravings. Crisp, crunchy and satisfying, apples are low in calories, so as a snack replacement, they can help you lose weight by avoiding all those unhealthy, processed sugary snacks.
Add Celery Sticks to Your Healthy Diet Plan
It’s hard to beat a snack that contains only one calorie. With celery, you can eat as many as you want and truly not worry. This water-rich food has small amounts of electrolytes, fiber and protein and gives you a fun, crunchy way to satisfy that snack craving. Plus, they’re easy to store and carry. So reach for celery sticks when the cravings begin…just be sure to refuse the urge to dip them in ranch dressing.
GG Bread Crisps can Support Weight Loss
Isn’t there something especially satisfying about snacking on crackers? Now you can snack in good health with these high fiber bran bread crisps. Not really bread, these crisps take the carbs out of snacking and fill you up with all that healthy fiber. So if you want to change up your fruit and vegetable snacking, GG bread crisps are a great addition to your healthy weight loss program.
Let Almonds Satisfy Your Hunger
One of nature’s healthiest snacks, almonds quell the snack attack that might otherwise plague your healthy diet plan. These little nuts pack a powerful punch with a lot of fiber, protein and unsaturated fats. In addition to helping you lose weight, almonds also provide lots of minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese as well B vitamins and Vitamin E. So put some in a plastic bag and keep them in your purse, your desk or the glove compartment in your car for easy, healthy snacking.
Following a healthy weight loss program is easier when you can snack on convenient, healthy foods that satisfy you without much effort. Having these healthy snacks on hand no matter where you are can have a direct positive impact on your weight loss goals. So take the time to boil those eggs, cut up those apples and celery, bag up those almonds and buy those bread crisps. When those craving hit, you’ll be glad you’ve got healthy snacks on hand.
