If you are looking for a snack alternative that is as filling and satisfying but without the health issues you might want to replace your afternoon or pre-lunch milk and cookie snack with a tall glass of soy milk loaded with ground flaxseed and maybe an oatmeal low-sugar cookie. Why? Not only does this snack alternative have lots of protein with fewer calories you also feel lighter on your feet after drinking cholesterol-free soy milk. You don t get that heavy feeling when you ingest the liquid cholesterol included in cow s milk. Adding flaxseed to your soy milk reduces your cravings because the dietary fiber in ground flaxseed expands in your digestive system. As a result your system sends less hunger signals to your brain. The brain-boosting and healthy Omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed is also a great bonus. If you re a snacker (aren t we all?) and you ve resolved to lose weight there s some new research on diet snacks that you might want to know about. A recent study finds that having a snack at midmorning was linked to less weight loss than eating snacks at different times throughout the day.
It is great for kids and for you. There are no additives no worries about salt and sugar and no oils or fats in them as well. AVOCADO and CRACKERS Another great snack that we d love to share is avocado and crackers. Not everyone may like plain avocado though. However if you get some rice crackers and put some avocado on it similar to guacamole you lay on the avocado nice and soft then you put a slice of tomato on it some cracked pepper and then a little bit of salt that my friend is one great snack. It is great for morning or afternoon snack and even for school. Even the big kids will love them as well. They are really filling and I do enjoy them as well. It really does wonders. BANANA Now another great snack that I find especially for the lunch box is a banana. It is full of potassium and is a great source of energy especially for your children. They are a really great snack food. That s what you would want for your kids.
