Rethink what it means to SNACK.
Let’s saying you’re trying to lose weight or upgrade your health. Ask any nutritionist, diet “guru,” or fitness magazine and they’ll likely condemn snacking as the one of the most atrocious things you can do, as if you’re committing a crime in the same stratosphere as Pablo Escobar or El Chapo.
Call Sean Penn, I guess.
Save for the melodrama, they’re partially right — especially if you’re relentlessly chugging soda or shoving pizza, chips, cookies, pretzels, fast food, and other salty abominations down your esophagus on the regular.
You know, processed, empty calories that are loaded with carbs, sugar, and nasty trans fats, all while being thoroughly devoid of nutrition.
Your move: transform snacking into a power activity. Instead of mindlessly eating garbage, use it as a tool to keep hunger in check and shoot your body up with everything from protein and fiber, to healthy fats and vital vitamins and minerals.
We’re whipping out 8 of our favorite uber-lean, nutrient-jacked, healthy snacks that can roll with and power your healthy diet anywhere, regardless of whether that’s on a cross-country road trip, your next flight to France, or at the office when the 3PM crash hits.
Healthy Snack 1 — Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps
Love salty, crunchy snacks? Drop the pretzels and chips and go with Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps instead. Made from 70% green peas (non-GMO), they’re delicately light and crispy, exploding with flavor, and loaded with nutrition.
Each 110 calorie serving packs 5g protein, 4g fiber, and 8% of the DV for iron. And even if you accidentally slip, binge, and crush the whole bag (trust us, you will), consider it a perfectly balanced power meal with a whopping 18g protein & 14g fiber.
We personally love the wasabi ranch and black pepper flavors. Who said eating your veggies was hard anyway?
