The cold winds are already pushing away the motivation to live in a healthy way by making us laze around in blankets, craving hot chocolate and binging on our favourite shows and foods. Often, it becomes hard to choose healthy eats.
To get the best suggestions for healthy snacking, HealthShots got in touch with Garima Gupta, Co-founder Delicc, who is going to reveal the most healthy snacks which you can enjoy every winter evening.
So, scroll down and get an idea about how to warm up your taste buds with healthy snacks to go with your winter tea:
1. Roasted Seed Mix
Come on ladies, we don’t even have to exaggerate how nutritious seeds are. The roasted seed mix is a perfect fiber-packed snack to munch on in the freezing evening. Garima says, “Loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, mono and polyunsaturated fats, seeds help the body to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol.” And that’s why they are healthy.
2. Roasted Nut Mix
Nuts like almonds, walnuts, and peanuts are great winter snacks. Whether you choose raw and roasted nuts, both are good for you and provide health benefits. They are tasty, tanked up with healthy fats, protein, antioxidants, and other nutrients that reduce the risk of inflammation and heart stroke.
So, give yourself an instant energy boost and fight off the diseases.
3. Berry Mix
Berries are not only delicious, but also extremely helpful in preventing cancer and lowering blood pressure. “A diabetic person can simply enjoy the berries because their natural sweetness is super packed with fiber, making it one of the best snacking options,” says Garima.
Winter evening demands you to stay energized to watch the falling fog making its home on the leaves. And what’s better than makhanas? Garima says, “It’s a super healthy, delicious, and micronutrients rich snack, helping you snatch back the power from a gloomy winter day.”
Ditch potato chips and nosh on homemade unsalted popcorn. Don’t misjudge these, because they might surprise you with their uncountable health benefits. Ah, we aren’t kidding! Garima says, “Popcorns are so high in polyphenol antioxidants protecting our cells from damage by free radicals.”
