As you prepare for the summer and begin your workout routine, it’s time to reexamine your diet. For starters, you’ll want to avoid snacking on foods that are high in salt, cholesterol, and empty calories and start keeping healthy snacks on hand. Head over to your local grocery store and pick up these snacks to get started.
#1 Coconut Chips
Trade in that bag of greasy potato chips for coconut chips. You can pick up this snack at a grocery store or even make them from scratch at home – just follow this recipe. Coconut chips are a combination of savory and sweet, so this snack can quench any craving! Also, coconuts are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
#2 Dried Mangoes
Dried fruit, especially mangoes, are a very useful snack to have around. They are portable and have a longer shelf life than fresh fruit. Dried mangoes have antioxidants and vitamins A, B-6, K, and C, as well as potassium. Read the ingredients to make sure that the mangoes are fresh and free of sulphites, which are used as preservatives.
#3 Zucchini Pizza Bites
Make your own zucchini pizza bites as a substitute for traditional pizza. Slice up a zucchini, sprinkle some shredded mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce over the slices, and bake for 30 minutes. This can cut out the carb-loaded pizza in favor of a tasty and satisfying treat.
#4 Yogurt Covered Strawberries
This sweet treat is a healthy alternative to candies and chocolates. Simply dip some strawberries into Greek yogurt and place them in the freezer for 20 minutes. Greek yogurt is high in protein and has half the sodium of regular yogurt.
