Eating fewer prepackaged, processed foods can change the way your body looks and feels. Of course, you may already know this. However, the urge to indulge in eating unhealthy foods is easier than deciding to eat healthier.
Here are a few snack alternatives that are worth craving instead of the junk food.
Bananas. Not only are they affordable and improve digestion, bananas will help with weight loss as they are an excellent source of fiber and potassium.
Almonds. They are small enough to keep in your bag to satisfy your craving for something crunchy while on the go. A single serving provides a healthy dose of fiber, protein, and monounsaturated fats.
Hard Boiled Eggs. A carton of eggs does not cost much. Also, they are a protein source, another fat-fighting nutrient.
