It is not very uncommon for people to say that their waistline refuses to shrink despite them sticking to three healthy main meals per day. When your main meals are in place and healthy too, it should bring the results, right?
Wrong. What does not get counted is the numerous amount of snacking that happens in between meals, or while you are travelling or perhaps you feel like munching on something while reading a good book. How often do you really pay attention to the nutritional quotient of munchies you snack on?
We bring to your rescue the top healthiest snack foods that you can munch on guilt-free:
1. Go nuts over nuts!
Nuts like peanuts, cashews and almonds make for a crunchy way to add more protein, fiber and energy to your mid-day woes. The tasteful crunch adds to your taste-buds’ pleasure too! Pistas have a good amount of nutrition packed in them: high on protein, MUFAs, fiber and also doubles up as a great energy booster. While walnuts add to your day a good dose of healthy Omega 3 fatty acids; they also serve as a good source of copper which is required for energy production in the body.
2. Frozen grapes
Firm, yet easy to bite, frozen grapes are the best zesty bite-sized popsicles that get better with each bite. Rich in fiber, bursting with antioxidants and flavour, these bite-sized frozen treats are the perfect way to satisfy those midday sugar cravings. Spread washed whole grapes onto a baking sheet or a big plate in a layer, freeze them for at least 4 hours and pop them into a zip-lock and you are good to go.

4. Dark beauty
If you are feel like munching on an indulgent snack then all you need to think is- Chocolate!
