Hi My Inside-Out Beauties!
Hope you're having a lovely Saturday.
I was just thinking about starting to eat healthier next Monday [ I know! Such a cliché, right? ]. But, anyways, that brings me to the reason for today's post!
Eating right and healthy is a key factor in bringing our beauty from the inside-out. I think you will agree that a healthier body is indeed a prettier one! I don't know about you, but my biggest diet "mistakes" happen in between meals, during snack time!I sometimes feel peckish and just feel tempted to eat anything that I can instantly grab on the go... and that generally means junk food :-/ Now this was one of the topics I discussed on my last visit to my nutritionist. I feel that snacking is my weakest point, "what are the healthiest snacks?" I asked. And her answer was so simple, and made me realize just how easy it actually is.
Mother nature has given us the healthiest snacks years before the food industry even existed!
So we basically want to focus on non processed foods that are easily carried with us on the go. And the best example for this are...
FRUITS! Both fresh and dried fruits, are a very healthy and nutritious source of energy and vitamins that helps us balanced and satisfied. When I say dried fruits I mean, almonds, nuts and raisins. You can easily carry a fist size portion of these 3 on a zip lock bag in your purse.
Please, beware of the portions you eat! We're talking about healthy snacks not necessarily LOW CALORIE ones! If you're looking to loose weight, carry an apple with you instead :)
The final option she suggested is slightly more processed than the other two, but actually makes a lot of sense to me... Pop Corn! Can you believe pop corn is actually not that bad of an option ? If prepared without butter, but olive oil instead, pop corn can easily replace peanuts, chips, nachos and the others of that sort. If you're like me and don't have that much of a sweet tooth, this is actually a great alternative! Again, quantity and portion control is very important, and this wouldn't be recommended for weight-loss, just as a great replacement for junk food.
I hope this post inspires you to organize and choose next week's snacks a little better.
I know I will definitely try hard to do so!
Now, it's your turn, how do you snack?
Shoot me some other ideas girls!
