3 Healthy snacks that help

remember a time where snacking was forbidden, especially if you were trying to lose weight. I remember a time where you were only allowed to have lunch and dinner, or actually breakfast and lunch only for that matter, no dinner was allowed if you were really serious about your weight loss goals.

I remember that hunger pangs were a good thing, as it was said that it’s our body’s way of reminding us that we are in the process of burning fat and losing weight. Oh, how wrong we were. Thankfully, times have changed, and research (for a change) is on our side.

Would you believe me if I told you that snacking is not actually a bad thing? In fact, it’s a great thing if done right. Snacking on healthy, nutritious and low-calorie foods actually have numerous health and weight loss benefits, as it can help us from over eating while keeping those pesky cravings at bay.

But, what are some of the healthiest and most nutritious foods to snack on?  Don’t worry, here at SupaShape we have got you covered!

Check out these healthy snack alternatives below that can not only help control cravings, but also kick-start your metabolism.

1. GREEK YOGHURT AND WALNUTS

Not only is Greek yoghurt a great slow-digesting solution that can help you stay fuller for longer, but it’s also rich in protein and fats (the healthy kind of course).

Why not almonds you might wonder? Well, did you know that walnuts actually contain 2.5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids whereas almonds contain a lot less, or hardly any for that matter, despite what you might have read?

It’s a fact that walnuts contain 13 grams of polyunsaturated fat per 30 grams of which 2.5 grams are omega-3’s. Almonds on the other hand only contain 3.5 grams of polyunsaturated fat per 30 grams of which none is omega-3 fatty acids.

2. PINEAPPLE AND COTTAGE CHEESE

Looking for a salty-sweet combo? Sounds weird right, but trust me, if you are looking to tickle those taste buds, then try some fat-free cottage cheese with a slice or pineapple, or five.

This is the ideal any time snack due to the fact that it contains roughly 20 grams of carbohydrates and a whopping 12 grams protein.

Believe me, you won’t regret it.

3. GLUTEN-FREE PROTEIN INFUSED RICE CAKES

Protein what? That’s right, rice cakes. And they are definitely something to write home about. With only 2.8 grams of sugar per rice cake you can rest assure that your weight loss efforts won’t be jeopardized.

They are made from organic brown basmati rice, blended with a premium whey protein isolate crisp. To top it all off, they are enrobed with the finest and naturally sweetened white yoghurt that’s made without refined cane sugar.

These delicious snacks are also free from artificial sweeteners, gluten and preservatives making them the ideal snack for anyone trying to live a healthier lifestyle.
