Easy Healthy Snack Alternative

Whenever you think about eating healthy or dieting, what's the one thing that stops you? 

For a lot of people, the one thing that ruins diets is snacking! Snacking through the day may seem harmless, but unhealthy options can ruin the healthy meals you're spending time and money on making. Some people tend to limit themselves when they're dieting with protein deficient meals, which lead to finding yourself hungry throughout the day and reaching for unhealthy options!

With so many healthy snack alternatives out there, now is the time to get smart on how you snack! "Potato Chips" should just be potatoes - right?! Think again! Average chips you grab from the store are filled with harmful ingredients more detrimental to your health than you might think!  Here's what those chips that you can't put down can lead to...

 

  • Weight Gain: Chips are high in fat and calories, with extremely low nutrition levels. These potatoes are heavily fried in oil that educes the general vegetable benefits and leaves them nutrition less and saturated. 
  • Low Nutrition: Chips are typically low in vitamins and minerals, and they tend to displace things in your diet that are higher in nutrients. Snacks should be mini boosts throughout the day to compliment your healthy lifestyle, not binges of fat filled substances. 
  • High Cholesterol: The sodium content in chips can seriously negatively impact your cardiovascular health! High levels of sodium commonly in chips can increase blood pressure leaving to serious heart consequences like heart attacks 

 

We know it can be hard to totally give up a food you love to munch on, so what if we told you that you could make your own healthy version? Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is all about swapping ingredients simply, not totally cutting things out (limitation is how diets fail!).
