4 Simple, Healthier Snacks to Satiate Food Cravings

No matter how much we try to suppress cravings, they’re part and parcel of life. Rather than completely suppressing cravings (which is unsustainable), we need to channelize these towards healthier alternatives. Look out for healthier ingredients / foods such as dark chocolate, cashews and seeds, peanut butter, grains, etc. when trying to satiate cravings. Ingredients such as these are often found in food products such as muesli, bars, chocolates, etc.

Nutrition when combined with great taste makes living a healthier life less challenging, less boring and more fun. To satiate food cravings, to grab that badly needed bite in the middle of stressful work, to relax and unwind after a hard day’s work with some evening snacks, we look for easily available, tasty options. All these push us towards picking up fatty stuff that does more harm than good.

Living a healthier life is a choice. Here are few healthy snacks that are simpler nutrition alternatives you can try anytime:

   1. Dark Chocolate

Healthy Snack

A good source of energy, dark chocolate boosts brain power and improves blood flow. Try dark chocolate with almonds and you get a bundle of energy that is packed with carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals and fibers. You can also pick up a bowl of muesli mix that has dark chocolate along with fruits and it will make a great healthy snack for the evening.

2. Cashews and Seeds

Dry Fruits

It is a wonderful snack that will instantly put you in a happy mood. Roasted peppered cashews are a great delicacy and win hands down in overall taste. Add a mix of seeds such as organic flax seeds or roasted sunflower seeds. Rich in necessary nutrients with antioxidant properties, these dry fruits and seeds helps your body get rid of toxins and boost your immunity level.

3. Apple Slices Along With Peanut Butter

Apple slices with peanut butter is a delicious and healthy snack. Apple is rich in vitamins and antioxidant properties. Peanut butter is packed with necessary nutrients like carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, roughages, and fats. Thus this snack offers a neat packet of healthy nutrition without much ado.

4. Multigrain

Healthy Energy Bar

 

Multigrain is the in-thing especially because now it is available in a wide variety of snacks, cereals, bars, cakes, bread and what have you. For a quick snack of multigrain, you can pick up a nuts and seeds energy bar or go for a pack of crunchies. Take two slices of multigrain brown rice cakes and munch on them when those dreaded food cravings strike. Add your favorite topping to make a healthy snack or quick breakfast for busy school mornings!

And if you are still wondering about the nutrition you can expect in a multigrain snack, here’s a quick list. The dietary fiber in multigrain helps provide a more diverse mineral intake, protect the heart, build strong bones, improve the metabolism and boost circulation apart from aiding digestion.

Enjoy these healthy snacks that lead you to healthier living the simpler way. They boost your energy levels, leave you free of unnecessary weight gain and build your immunity. Can we wish for more?
