For many people, steady weight gain over the years can be attributed to poor snacking habits. Most of their main meals contain nutritious foods, but in between these times a lot of mindless eating occurs. This mindless snacking is usually on foods which are highly processed and provide excess energy, fat, sugar and salt.
For most of my clients, sorting out snacking habits is one of the best ways they can improve their overall eating pattern, lose weight and improve their health.
If weight loss or improving your diet is on the agenda, then I suggest you look at improving your snacks by using vegetables. Vegetable snacks are higher in fibre, vitamins and minerals, and when paired with the right accompaniments, vegetable snacks can be filling and satisfying. If you can get consistent with vegetable snacks, you’ll be well on your way to a healthier body in no time at all.
If you’re the type of person who likes to nibble, pick or graze, how about swapping some of you usual snack foods for these vegetable snacks.
