September 7: Food: Healthy Snacks
Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays (a Photo or Writing Challenge)
We all own ourself this duty;
To keep our bodies healthy!
What we put in our bodies is what makes us; Strong and healthy or sick and weak. Who says a healthy diet has to be boring or not tasty.
Try food combinations that can give you the maximum advantage and yet are tasty and appetizing.
Eating white meat, especially fish is healthy, adopt this habit
Shun red meat and organ meat as it will make you sick
Add fresh and green vegetables to your diet in oodles
Grain and lentils are good to keep hunger at bay
Don’t use too much white food like flour-based pasta, sugar, or salt
Fresh fruits fulfill the requirement of vitamins and minerals
Staying healthy is very much a choice and so is choosing an unhealthy diet
It is your only body: look after it for there isn’t a replacement
Healthy eating is often associated with food that is considered not appetizing. But many healthy snacks are yummy too.
Nuts, and nut butter, but do make sure they don’t contain corn syrup.
Cheese and yogurt are rich in calcium and proteins and make great snacks.
Fresh fruit like apples, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries all are great healthy snacks.
Dried fruits like cranberries, figs, and peaches, or fruit chips like banana chips, and apple chips are good to eat and satisfy hunger too.
Cucumber or carrot sticks dipped in yogurt dressing are a savoy alternative when hungry.
Potatoes, boiled, mashed, or baked are perfectly healthy options too. Just hold the butter or sour cream.
Suffice to say, we can always make healthy eating choices, provided we have the will and knowledge to do so. So go on, treat your body to some good food.
