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!

throughout school I have always been picked on weither it be because of my interests or just my personality. In middle school I was called ####### everyday by all the guys in my grade. One of my teachers even bullied me and my mom never believed me because my teacher was so nice to her... I ended up crying on the 3rd day of my freshman year because the kids in my class were so mean to me... I'm gonna be a sophomore in highschool this year and I really don't want to go back to school because I'm afraid that it will be a repeat of freshman year... I need advice on how to make the best of the rest of school if I have to deal with the people that bully me...

My mom. She utterly hates me and whenever we fight she not only takes all my things away in a rage so I can't talk to anyone online, she screams about how I'm stupid, lazy and a horrible person and other similar bad stuff. Thanks for the self esteem boost Mom (:
