6 Snacks That'll Keep You Full for Way Longer
Most people enjoy a snack in between meals, both for taste and to keep hunger pangs at bay. But, some snacks are better than others at stopping us from feeling hungry and can benefit our bodies. So check out the ones down below and let me know what you think!
At roughly 78 calories per egg, they’re filling and won’t cost you too much of your daily total. Eggs are a great source of protein, as well as a variety of other vitamins and minerals. This means they will fill the void in your stomach while keeping you nice and healthy. Pop them in a pot, or wrap with some cling film and you’re good to go.
Everything in moderation is good, so why should you miss out on the things you enjoy? Beef jerky can be a filling and tasty treat. The protein will also help keep you full. You may also find that, due to excessive chewing, you’ll feel like you’ve had more because it takes longer to eat.
Whether you use store-bought or homemade, bean chips can be a great and delicious snack that is easily portable too. With high fiber and protein, they will keep you feeling full. You can have them in a wide range of flavors too, so they won’t get boring any time soon.
While hummus isn’t too easy to transport without a pot or sealed contained, its predecessor can be. Roasted chickpeas can provide you with a variety of flavors and to fit almost any mood. Whether you prefer something savory with a salty twist, a spicy treat, or even something sweet, chickpeas are so versatile that you can use them for all your snacking needs.
Caramel popcorn is out, and homemade popcorn is in. You can pick up a popcorn machine for pretty cheap online, and popcorn kernels are also inexpensive. You don’t need many to get a decent-sized portion. You may choose a light sprinkling of salt or, for something a bit different, cajun spice (or other spices) can turn them into an extra delicious treat.
Trail mix is a great snack that you can take wherever you go. The mix of nuts and dried fruits will give you lots of minerals, vitamins, and protein, which are all essential to maintaining your overall health. They can also be quite filling too, but just make sure to opt for low calories versions.
Not all snacks are created equally, and these six sit high above the rest. When you find the balance between healthy eating and ensuring you don’t feel hungry, losing weight or staying healthy become that much easier.
