Popcorn is high in fiber and even delivers a little protein. A 1-ounce serving (about 3 cups) of air-popped popcorn has 4 grams of fiber, almost 4 grams of protein and clocks in at 110 calories. This combination makes it a snack with staying power. Popcorn is actually a whole grain and 3 cups is a huge serving-especially when you compare it to other crunchy, salty snacks like chips. Many companies are making bagged popcorn, see our favorite healthy popcorn picks.
November’s snack box was packed with an abundance of sweet treats. We are “Oat So Thankful” for you, so Novembers featured items packed real punch. First, you unwrapped an Endangered Species ESC One Puffed Rice Crunch + Dark Chocolate bar. Second, you snacked on gooey delicious JJ’s Sweets Coconut Sugar Caramels. And finally, you enjoyed UNREAL’s Dark Chocolate Crispy Peanut Gems. Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
Feeling in the mood for cookies? While one standard Oreo or Chips Ahoy won't likely derail your diet, it's tough to stop at one. That's where a good substitute comes in. McLachlan recommends 2 graham cracker squares spread with light peanut butter. You'll get a mix of sweet and salty flavors, plus a protein and fat boost from the peanut butter, which will keep you full till your next meal.
Sweet, creamy, and filling, this trio feels completely indulgent. The combination of fiber, healthy fats, and protein are sure to get you over any 3pm slump. Plus, the vitamin C in raspberries increases your body's fat-burning ability, according to research in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Combine a single-serving container of Greek yogurt, a cup of raspberries, and a half-tablespoon of honey.
This is SO helpful, because each time I’ve tried going vegan, it’s BETWEEN meals I’ve been stumped. OK, I made a healthy vegan breakfast. OK, I have a delicious vegan dinner planned. But …. now what?! And it’s funny, because it’s not like I snack on hard-boiled eggs or cheese, I just — I guess I couldn’t think of ANYTHING healthy to eat, not just something vegan! :-) (Except for plain straight veggies. And I just have way too much of a sweet tooth to feel called to snack on them by themselves.)
I would like to leave my mark on this floating rock that we call Earth by showing the world and humanity that being a vegan is not difficult, and that it’s just a simple change in mindset and lifestyle. It is in my greatest hopes that you find my content educational, inspirational, funny & witty, but most importantly a community where we come together where we live in peace and harmony.
