How to choose healthy snacks
Eating the right snacks is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Snacking provides fuel and boosts energy levels, as well as provides little delights throughout the day! By shopping smart, making mindful decisions, and being aware of ingredients, you can easily integrate healthy snacks into your life.

Quite often the common healthy snacks that you buy in the supermarket can actually pretty high in sugar and have other nasty little ingredients added that just shouldn’t be there.

You may know that I am all about making your own snacks and treats. Making your own just means that you’ll know exactly what is added to the product and you know there is no preservatives, refined sugar and that sort of rubbish.

Check these 3 things when you choose a healthy snack:

🥑Make sure it is made with natural ingredients
A good way to think about this, is for each ingredient you should be able to buy and eat on it’s own. It should be earth grown and not made in a factory.

🥑Check there is no refined sugar
Be aware of how much sugar is in some of healthy snacks. It is a good idea to read the label of a product and check how much sugar they have.
I went to the supermarket and found a healthy protein bar but when I checked the label I found that it contains 9gr of sugar which is a lot of sugar in just one small snack.

🥑Choose snacks that are high in fiber.
Among many health benefits, fiber-based snacks are very filling in small quantities.
