Top 10 Healthy Snacks

Feb 11, 2013

Sometimes life can be too hectic to sit down for proper meals, and you just need to grab something on the go quickly, but instead of reaching for a bag of chips or a chocolate bar there are lots of delicious healthy snacks out there. Check out the Top 10 Healthy Snacks!

No.10: Sunflower Seeds

Whether you choose to get eat them plain, salted or spiced, sunflower seeds are great for you and feel good when you crack the shell and get to the tasty seed.

No.9: Cheese and Crackers

Who doesn’t love cheese? Besides being delicious, cheese is a quick source of protein and paired with crackers is an easy, low fat snack.

No.8: Popcorn

Popcorn from the movie theater drenched in butter and covered with flavoring isn’t great for you, but when you make popcorn at home and just add a little salt or butter it’s a fantastic light snack.

No.7: Celery Sticks

Crunching on celery sticks is great alternative to other not so healthy crunchy snacks (like chips.)

No.6: Nuts

Nuts are a good source of heart healthy fats and can be filling and nutritious. Peanuts, cashews, pecans, take your pick!

No.5: Apple Chips

They’re not always easy to find, but most health food stores stick these sweet treats in chip form, or if you have dehydrator at home you can make them yourself!

No.4: Granola Bars

Granola bars are a favorite even with people who couldn’t care less about health. They’re all about eating on the go!

No.3: Trail Mix

You can buy trail mix or make your own with nuts, dried fruit, granola and even a little bit of candy (like Smarties) to liven up these natural nibbles.

No.2: Yoghurt

Yoghurt has bacteria in it – the good kind! It’s great for digestion and is also a healthy source of fats and calcium.

No.1: Fruit

Before there were chips and chocolate, there was fruit. Fruit is the original food on the go, it’s easy to transport and is quick source or energy. So grab an apple next time you’re running out the door!

Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.

I'm 12 years old, and for some reason I'm always sad. I got a gold medal in my gym, and I just started crying, but I wasn't crying because I was happy. I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated.
