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!

Just use a darkish eye-shadow in the creases of your eyelid, and don't use any foundation. No-one will notice that you are wearing makeup and your eyes will appear slightly bigger and more dreamy.  :D
