The Quality And Quantity Of Your Snacking
Eating right is like walking a tightrope. It’s a balancing act that requires practice and focus. But just what are you balancing? The quality of your food, as well as the quality of it, are important factors to balance as you practice healthy eating habits. That extends to your snacking of course. But many people view snacks as something that are easy to have too much of and aren’t the healthiest for you. At Simpalo Snacks, we’re committed to having healthy snacks delivered to your office, so that you can better balance these important elements when you snack.
The Quality Of Your Snacks
Quality is sometimes a difficult thing to measure, especially when it comes to snacking. Often, even unhealthy snacks advertise themselves as a healthy choice because of misleading labels like “0 calories” or “fat-free.” We measure the quality of our snacks by looking at the contents and ingredients. A high-quality snack is one that is low in saturated and trans-fats, but still has the healthy fats that our bodies need. Quality snacks are also low in sodium and simple sugars, which may taste great, but our body doesn’t really need them. A high amount of antioxidants in a snack is a great sign that it has the fuel you need to get through the day. And finally, a high-quality snack keeps balance in mind, as it has an even amount of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and vitamins and minerals in each package.
The Quantity Of Your Snacks
We’ve all had that moment where we sit down with a bag of chips and promise ourselves we’ll only have a few. As Netflix queues up another episode, we look down to see half the bag gone. While the quality of our snack is important, the fact is that if we consume a large quantity of a high-quality snack, it can have a detrimental impact on our health. You can determine what is a healthy quantity of a snack by first looking at the suggested serving size on the label. Later, you can also look at your overall diet and adjust your snacking to meet your dietary needs.
Striking A Balance
Snacking is done for a variety of reasons. We snack to alleviate hunger or to give us a boost of energy in the middle of the day. A well-balanced snack accomplishes these things and is a regular part of our diet. The trick to balanced snacking is to snack when you’re hungry and eat only a controlled portion of a high-quality snack.
