fruits1

Fruit is a great snack and very accessible on the go. Fruit is filled with antioxidants and fiber. It is packed with nutrients and will help keep you full with its fiber.  As mentioned above, snacking can be tricky if you snack on the wrong kinds of food. Fruit is one of the best snacks you can choose. There are several different types of food all with different nutritional benefits.

  • Citrus fruit is great to add to infuse in water to add some flavor
  • Berries are rich in antioxidants and are great to incorporate into smoothies
  • Tropical fruits like pineapple and mango promote natural detoxification
  • Bananas are full of potassium and can be a great snack with some nuts or nut butter

Fruit is full of nutrients but is also sweet. It is a good thing to turn to when you are having a craving for something sweet. Because fruit contains fiber, it will satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you from wanting more unlike a sugary candy bar. A great snack to turn to when you are hungry and want to indulge in your sweet tooth is a fruit smoothie. You can find a great fruit nut smoothie on the next page.
