Recipes — Healthy Snacks

In today’s hectic life style it probably feels like there is no time for healthy eating, or you simply can not find recipes that are both healthy and quick to make. As a result it is tempting to reach for the quick and simple snacks such as potato chips or candy.

Do you ever run out of healthy recipes for snacks, or find them to time consuming?

Snacking is a major part of our lives, especially when it comes to kids. This article looks at why healthy snacks are vital for all the family and will provide you with some straightforward and fascinating recipes.

Foods with natural colours are on the whole excellent for you, like red apples, yellow bananas or orange carrots. Possibly the most vital thing to remember is variety, a balanced diet will keep you healthy and fit as well as feeling excellent.

First of all I am going to give you some snacking tips.

Always make your snacks fascinating

A rice cake is better than a packet of potato chips but is probably considered dull, so why not spread peanut butter and raisins on the top, or find some quick recipes for a salsa.

Prepare snacks in advance When you have some time chop up carrots, celery sticks, cucumber parts and other vegetables, place them in a sealed container in the fridge so as soon as you feel like snacking you can reach for the healthier option

Keep snacks with you To save yourself getting caught out needing a snack when you are out keep snacks with you in your bag. Again the simplest and quickest are fruit and vegetables.

Swap food When shopping always reckon of a healthier alternative to what you pick up. Instead of potato chips go for low stout crackers or rice cakes. If you want biscuits chose one that contains fruit alternatively make your own (see recipes to follow)
