7 Healthy Snacks to Keep You Full Longer
How many times have you tried to go on a diet only to quit when your stomach growls an hour after that “healthy” (aka tiny) breakfast? Sticking with a weight loss plan seems impossible with the urge to snack, but luckily there are ways to tackle this problem head-on by eating filling snacks and natural powders like Parker Naturals Perfect 10 Supergreens.
We’ve all heard that an apple a day keeps the doctor away but it turns out fruit can also keep off unwanted pounds and support healthy snacking. Starchy carbs like bread, pasta, and potatoes are fine in your meals, but when eaten too much the body will store the sugars as fat instead of using them throughout the day as energy. Choosing fruits and berries as snacks between meals instead gives your system the nutrients it needs to stay full and power through your day.
Eating an entire bag of anything will probably lead to weight gain, but if you’re able to limit yourself to a serving of nuts (usually a handful) they make a great healthy snack. The combination of good fats and clean protein helps your body stay full and also gives you the sweet or salty taste you’re craving. Stick to roasted nuts not candied, and be aware of portion size.
3. Perfect 10 Supergreens
For those who find it hard to squeeze nutritious foods into their day, Parker Naturals Perfect 10 Supergreens provide 5-9 servings of high-quality fruits and vegetables. The premium organic formula contains vitamins, minerals, and amino acids like vitamins A, C, K, niacin, B6, folic acid and B12. When mixed the water the delicious powder blend increases energy, improves wellness, and supports weight loss by stopping hunger cues and helping you feel full in between meals. Backed by scientific studies, the probiotic formula gives your digestive system a boost without any aches, bloating, or pain.
An omelet may be great in the morning, but eggs don’t have to be for breakfast. Hard boiling a dozen on Sunday will give you easy snacks for the whole week. The protein and healthy fat help you feel satisfied and deliver necessary nutrition. Just be careful not to have too many in one day, since the cholesterol is best in small doses.
If you do opt for fresh produce in addition to your super greens, you can’t go wrong with vegetables. Baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, and sliced cucumbers are easy to bring and eat on the go and are also healthy and filling. Besides, there are few things as satisfying as dipping a crunchy bell pepper in hummus in the middle of the afternoon.
6. Sugarless gum
Some people snack out of boredom, not because they’re actually hungry. Next time you reach for a bite just because you want help focusing, try some sugarless gum. There are many flavors and varieties and the calorie count is negligible. If you are truly hungry of course gum won’t do the trick, but if you notice you’re just looking for something to do with your mouth, it can help hold you over until you’re ready for a snack or full meal.
This is another food that may seem like it only belongs with breakfast, but instant oatmeal can be a perfect snack. All you need is water and access to a microwave or boiling water and this quick meal will obliterate those 10am cravings as soon as they hit. The fiber-filled oats help keep cholesterol levels in check and help you feel satisfied throughout the rest of the day.
The modern day diet is dominated by fast food meals, frozen dinners, and salty, fatty snacks. But choosing the right snacks can increase your chances of sticking to a meal plan. So do yourself a favor, and let Parker Naturals Perfect 10 Supergreens and smart snacking help you not only reach your weight loss goals, but also achieve optimum health and wellness.
