Its four in the evening and you are in your office with your stomach tumbling with hunger pangs and due to limited access to healthy options you reach out to a pack of chips, muffins etc. This is a call for snacking!
Snacking is usually considered to be bad with the image of samosas, patties, bread pakoras, chaat papri coming to your mind…but they are actually good source of energy in the middle of the day only if they are selected watchfully!
Restricting your snacks to healthy choices can help in weight loss keeping in mind that the total calories provided by snacks must fit into your overall daily calorie goal.
Positives of snacking comes with appetite control, sustained energy and can meet your nutritional needs
Our’s majorly being a sedentary lifestyle hitting the keyboards for almost 9 hours a day it becomes very important making healthy choices and with “healthy” we mean nutritious.
My take on nutritious options on snack usually restricts on sprouts salad, murmura, peanuts, fruits, whole wheat / oats biscuits etc – But I bet, you meet the boredom to the taste easily and monotonous of choices again makes you to reach those tastier but unhealthy snack options quite easily. So, requirement to meet the taste buds with new variation is always a welcome.
