FreshStop’s Top 7 Healthy Snacks for People on the Go
Spring is here; the days are getting longer and we are getting busier, which means we are getting hungrier. To fight our winter flab, we are trying to opt for healthy snacks, but with load shedding cutting into our time, there’s no time to make healthy lunches or snacks.
The inevitable happens; we hit that afternoon slump and reach for something to nibble, most times something unhealthy… then we start worrying that the family is eating too much junk food and so the cycle repeats.
But FreshStop has solved this problem for you. You can stop worrying: simply pop into FreshStop, where there is always a wide variety of healthy snacks available. Below we have compiled a list of on-the-go snacks that are both tasty and healthy.
Our Top 7 Healthy Snacks for People on the Go
Grab an apple, banana, or any other in-season fruit. Fruit is convenient and a super source of vitamins, minerals, and fibre, low in calories, and can help keep you hydrated
Health and Protein Bars
Look for ones with whole grains, nuts, and minimal added sugars. A great source of protein, easy to eat on the go, and comes in a number of tasty flavours.
Pop-corn is always a winner and not fattening. Enjoy this healthy snack!
Raisons and Nuts
Packed with protein, fibre, and healthy fats. A source of micronutrients like potassium. Fills that empty tummy space for quite a while. Raisins contain antioxidants which have various health benefits, including assisting with heart health and reduced inflammation. However, portion control is the name of the game, as they can be calorie-heavy. Try to pick unsalted nuts to keep your sodium intake in check.
High in protein, gluten-free and a great Keto and Banting snack as well.
FreshStop has a variety of smoothies. Definitely healthier than any energy drink or a fizzy, sugary drink, and you are upping your daily fruit intake in a fun and yummy way.
And last but not least, do not forget to hydrate. Quite often, when you think you are hungry, your body is in need of hydration. Even mild dehydration can lead to feelings of fatigue and irritability. Water has many benefits: it helps with digestion, temperature regulation, kidney function, and skin health. Try and drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.
So save yourself some time and guilt, and go for the healthy snack options available at FreshStop.
