F: Food (Healthy Snacks)

F: FOOD (HEALTHY SNACKS)

Something I learned with working retail for many years, and trying to remain sane every day, was that healthy snacks greatly influenced my ability to remain calm in the face of fury and stupidity. Now don’t get me wrong, I really believe that chocolate and a daily Vanilla Coke are two of the five major food groups. But if I anticipated a stressful, harried day, I stocked up on healthier choices that didn’t send my sugar levels racing all over the board. There was a noticeable difference in my energy levels, my attitude and my reactions on the days that I ate healthier.

Here’s a few healthy snacks to keep you going and will help have a smile on your face at the end of the day.

  • Fresh Fruits or Vegetables
  • Dried Fruits, such as banana chips or dried cranberries
  • Fruit and cottage cheese
  • Greek yoghurt
  • Peanut butter
  • Cheese
  • Nuts
  • Popcorn with parmesan topping
  • Oatmeal and raisins

For some more ideas, here’s ten healthy picks that nutritionists snack on at lunch.

Here’s more ideas for Healthy Snack Ideas, with lots of great recipes and nutritional advice.

    I would definitely go for the nuts and veggies.. even the small amounts of natural sugars in the fruit would still topple me on a stressful day. Me and sugar just don’t get along 😦 Great post!
    Many Blessings,
    Lori

    Great post again. Good to remind people that snacking can be healthy. Because of allergies no nuts or peanut butter for me, but low fat cheese is a good source of protein.

    Major food groups : coffee and maple syrup. Yeah.
    I love soybeans butter for snacks (peanut allergy in the house, he’s fine with me eating the soybeans butter) and greek yogurt based smoothies. I keep the cheese for dessert, so not really a snack!
    Thanks for the list!
