Healthy Snacks

It is normal to get hungry in between meals. Satisfy your cravings between meals with healthy, low-calorie snacks. What's so awesome about these snacks is that they are easy to take with you to the office or school. Pick two treats each day to satisfy your belly.

Dark Chocolate:
Dark chocolate decreases blood pressure in overweight adults, according to new research.Consuming just a small amount of this snack can increase blood flow to your skin, making it softer, smoother, and more resistant to sun damage.

Whole Grains:
Did you know that you  need at least 130 grams a day to keep your memory and concentration sharp. Try whole grains high in fiber, to give you energy throughout the day.

Low-Fat Dairy

Snacking on nuts may help you shed pounds. This snack is been said by researchers that slims down the waistline and reduces body fat throughout.
