9 healthy snacks
When we get hungry during meals, we usually resort to high-carb snacks such as chocolate, crackers, industrial cereal bars, sweet and savoury pastries, and so on. We are not doing our body any favours as carbohydrates, especially sugars, digest very quickly and provide us with a rapid increase in energy, but unfortunately also an equally rapid decline. Namely, blood sugar rises quickly and declines just as quickly, which causes us to soon feel hungry again and reach for unhealthy foods high in carbohydrates. As a result of this vicious circle, extra pounds and bad mood begin to pile up.
With bouts of hunger between meals, it is better to eat protein snacks, which do not have such a strong effect on blood sugar fluctuations and consequently saturate us for a long time. Here are some examples of healthy protein snacks:
Peanut butter boats
Greek yoghurt with granola
Take a jar of chickpeas, season to taste and fry in a teaspoon of oil. Eat as you would nuts, whenever you feel hungry. It is rich in protein and makes us feel full for longer.
Dried Fruits and Nuts Trail Mix
Trail mixes alleviate hunger attacks between meals. Such blends are rich in fibre, antioxidants, protein and unsaturated fatty acids. It’s great to always have the mixture on hand when we get hungry: in a handbag, in the car, in the office.
Add plant milk and 2-3 teaspoons of hemp, rice, pea, or other protein powder to your favourite fruits and vegetables. The fibre in fruits and vegetables in combination with the protein will provide a slower release of nutrients into the blood and keep you full for longer.
Season the jar of chickpeas or beans with salt, pepper and garlic powder (or any other spices you enjoy), add avocado or a little vegetable oil and blend into a smooth mixture. Dip sliced vegetables or corn tortillas into the sauce. Chickpeas and beans are good sources of plant protein and are a great snack.
