Make your own healthy snacks

A healthy snack is a snack that is nutritious, has a good balance of nutrients and gives you energy without unbalancing your diet. Here are some examples of healthy snacks:

  1. Fresh fruit: Apples, bananas, berries, oranges and grapes are all good options. They are rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals and contain natural sugars that give you an energy boost.

  2. Vegetable sticks with hummus: Cut some carrots, celery, cucumber or pepper into strips and serve them with a portion of hummus. Vegetables are low in calories and high in nutrients, while hummus is a source of protein and healthy fats.

  3. Unsalted nuts: Almonds, walnuts, cashews and pistachios are healthy choices for snacks. They contain healthy fats, proteins and fiber. Keep in mind that nuts are calorie-dense, so eat them in moderation.

  4. Greek yogurt with berries: Greek yogurt is a protein-rich snack that keeps you feeling full for a long time. Add some fresh berries for extra flavor and nutrients.

  5. Raw vegetables with a healthy dip: Slice some cucumber, bell pepper, celery or cherry tomatoes and serve them with a homemade yogurt dip or guacamole.

  6. Oatmeal cookies: Make healthy oatmeal cookies with oatmeal, banana, nut butter and possibly some raisins. These homemade cookies contain no added sugar and are a nutritious snack.

The most important thing is to choose snacks that are nutritious, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and healthy fats. Avoid snacks that contain a lot of added sugars, artificial ingredients and refined grains. Always read the nutrition labels and choose snacks with good nutritional value.
