Swap Those Afternoon Cravings With These Healthy Snacks
It’s 3pm and you can hardly keep your eyes open. Don’t blow all of your daily calories on a sweet or salty binge. Satisfy your cravings with these healthier alternatives to some of your favorite guilty snacks.
Instead Of Chips And Dip...
Try whole-grain pita chips with hummus. The hummus makes for a protein-rich dip, and healthy whole-grain chips tend to have less total saturated fat than potato chips.
Instead Of Candy...
Munch on some chocolate trail mix. Pack a homemade version with a healthy mix of almonds, dried fruit and chocolate chips or grab a store bought version if you don’t have the time to make your own.
Instead Of Pizza...
Indulge your craving and skip the feelings of guilt. A whole grain pizza bagel is healthier and lower in calories than a typical pizza, with the bonus of being easier to prepare.
Instead Of Ice Cream...
Try these frozen banana bites. They’re the perfect frozen snack or dessert and so easy to make, that the kiddos will have a blast helping out. Swap out the chocolate for nutella for an even healthier version!
Instead Of French Fries...
Delight in a french fry fake out! With these delicious baked carrot fries there is no need to sacrifice flavor for healthiness. They are lower in calories and packed full of fiber and vitamins.
