10 Best Snack foods

 

Snacking has earned a bad reputation. Some people are convinced good nutrition demands you limit your food intake to just three meals a day. The truth is snacking can be good for you if you make good choices. Choosing snacks that are high in fiber and low in fat, sugar and salt can help you meet your daily health and nutrition goals.

Nutritionist Susan Burke says, "Snacking is always part of a healthy diet. In fact, I recommend eating about six or seven small meals a day, that way your metabolism keeps burning calories."

Snacking does not mean you ignore portion sizes. Portion control plays a vital role in keeping calories under control. The key is to plan snacks into your meal plan. Always pack a couple of snacks so you will have something healthy to satisfy your mid-morning and mid-afternoon cravings.

eDiets provides you with all the tools to help you stay on track. Burke says, "Use your eDiets program to determine the total amount of food you need throughout the day and then use that menu to break it into six small meals. That way you don't go over your daily caloric requirements."

Healthy snacks don't have to be bland and boring. You never have to substitute taste when it comes to choosing nutritious munchies. There are countless ways to spice up your snacks and keep you satisfied. Burke recommends snacks that include protein, carbohydrates and a little fat.

"The combination snack is the best. The carbohydrates are good for some quick energy while the protein and fats provide you with a little more sustained energy."

Take a bite of these 10 super snacks that are sure to tackle your hunger pangs:

1. String cheese with strawberries

2. Ham on flatbread with peanuts

3. Cottage cheese with fruit

4. Melba Toast with peanut butter

5. Homemade bran muffin

6. Unsalted soy nuts

7. Seasonal fruits with a glass of skim milk

8. Lean turkey breast with rice crackers
