Some healthy snacks to masticate on
Soon after lunch, your alertness goes for a toss and you reach out for a cup of coffee. Leave that aside and consume sin-free food items like raw vegetables with hummus, oatmeal and organic nut bars.
Here’s a list of snacks that are in favour of your body:
• Raw vegetables with hummus: Raw vegetables like carrots and cucumbers, contain life-enhancing enzymes, which are destroyed when cooked and processed. Enzymes are essential for optimum digestion, metabolism and absorption. They also help in avoiding afternoon grogginess.
• Avocado: Packed with a lot of nutrients and heart-protective compounds, avocados have soluble fibre, vitamin E, folate, and potassium. One could opt for them in salads instead of mayonnaise.
• Organic health nut bars: They are rich in dry fruits like walnuts, almonds, pistachios, sunflower seeds and raisins.
• Assortment of fruits: Fruits like oranges, strawberry, apples, and pear can be easily stored. They are rich in various vitamins and minerals and can be stored at the office for one to two days.
