Snacks Containing The Best Foods for Health
We know how essential having a tasty snack available can be, especially when you are having a long day or there is a long wait before your next available meal. This topic is a compilation of our favorite snack which includes the best superfoods nature has to offer. You will find that this list contains snacks which are easy to prepare and convenient to carry with you. We will explain how to make each of the snacks below as needed. We are all about organic produce in our nutrition recommendations, so be sure to check the label for organic, so you receive high-quality ingredients! Get ready to indulge with amazing, nutritious foods!
Superfood Trail Mix
When you visit Wellness Origin, you will most likely find a majority of our Spa Team with little bags of raw nuts and or raw organic cranberries next to them. We love to make trail mixes using raw organic ingredients! A great combination includes raw organic pecans, cranberries, mulberries, pumpkin seeds, and raw cacao nibs. Simply buy the ingredients and mix them in a bag, then bring it with you whenever you go someplace! This is an excellent snack before lunch or as an afternoon pick me up. It can also be used as a highly nutritious dessert with only healthy sugars.
Carrots & Celery with Nut Butter
Carrots and celery are two of the best foods for health because they not serve as a rich source of nutrition, but also both are high in fiber content, so they can assist in keeping a healthy digestive tract. You can use a raw, organic, sprouted nut butter such as Pumpkin Seed Butter, Brazil Nut Butter, Almond Butter or Macadamia Nut Butter for a dip. Also, maple syrup is an excellent addition to the nut butter for added taste, depending on your preference. You can chop carrots and celery into smaller sticks in the morning, and bring a small container of nut butter or nut butter/maple syrup mix with you when you are out and about!
Apples or Oranges: The Best Superfoods
I love to carry a simple, easy to package and convenient to eat a piece of fruit with me wherever I go. I find that both apples and oranges are great to-go foods. They are easy to carry in my bag, and I can have one pretty much anywhere. Sometimes we forget the simplest foods are among the best superfoods available, they can make the best snacks, and they are so easy to come across!
Veggie Sticks & Dip
What are your three favorite vegetables? You can alternate your favorites with a dip of your choice for a snack. Dips we enjoy as a Wellness Origin Spa Team include vegan cheese spreads (made from organic nuts), organic hummus, and combinations of your favorite salad dressings made with cold pressed organic olive oil.
Raw cacao (chocolate in its natural, unheated, and unprocessed state) is a Wellness Origin favorite for its energy and mood enhancing nutrition and delicious taste. Bringing a bar of raw organic chocolate with you to nibble on during your day is an excellent nutritious source of antioxidants and healthy fats.
Juices and Smoothies
Both of these tasty beverages carry amazing nutritious benefits and can be enjoyed as a snack during your day. Put together your list of superfoods you enjoy most and alternate them in your juices and smoothies. If it is difficult for you to blend your favorite fruits and greens in the morning, try stopping by your nearest organic grocery’s juice bar for an organic, raw drink to go!
