Are you looking for ways to stay healthy for the summer?

Most of us are fighting with time and trying to eat healthy. Besides eating three healthy meals, it is beneficial to eat healthy snacks. Snacking helps maintain your blood sugar levels and prevents overeating.

Here are some ideas for healthy snacking:

  • Yogurt and Granola: Yogurt contains calcium and vitamin D, which helps strengthen bone, and protein, which promotes lean muscles

  • Mixed Nuts: Contain protein and vitamin D, which has been shown to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease

  • Fruit: Add pineapple and mango to get your daily Vitamin C intake

  • Ants on a Log: Pack peanut butter in a celery stick and top it with raisins

  • Popcorn: Popcorn is rich in fiber and low in calories

  • Nutrition Bar: Choose a bar that has less than 200 calories, is high in protein, has more fiber, and has less sugar and fat

  • Hard Boiled Egg: This 70-calorie snack is rich in protein

  • Edamame: Try 1/4 cup of this tasty treat, which is high in fiber and protein

  • Tomato Juice: Just 4 ounces allows you to drink your vegetable intake

Before your work week, prepare a few of these snacks to bring on the go, and get a jumpstart on your summer diet. Enjoy!
