There are so many positives to be able to work from home, but one issue, which I’m sure many of you can relate to, is having the kitchen at my disposal. I find that if I have healthy snacks ready to eat, I won’t be tempted with the unhealthy snack options. This is also an issue for my husband, who I try to send a lunch with from home when I can so he doesn’t have to rely on vending machines and fast food.
It is essential to a healthy diet to have healthy snack ingredients on hand. It is also known that snacking is important in between meals. Those with the healthiest diets consumed 36 percent more snacks per year compared to the average American. But of course, it also matters what you are snacking on. Whole foods like fruits, veggies and nuts are full of vitamins and nutrients and can be filling enough to tide you over until your next meal. This quick snack of grapefruit segments, pistachios, honey and the new Opadipity by Litehouse™ Sweet Dip is a tart, salty and sweet combination (Not to mention it has beautiful, bright colors!) Pistachios contain a lower calorie and fat count, while also containing a higher protein count than other nuts. According to health.com, grapefruits are heart-healthy fruits with antioxidants and can even boost your metabolism. This Grapefruit, Nut, Vanilla and Honey Snack Bowl recipe is a must try!
