Healthy Snacks Help You Ditch Junk Food Forever

Written by: Famous Foods | 2020-07-21 | no comments

You can snack on tasty foods and maintain a healthy diet. The trick is to avoid overly processed junk foods that deliver minimal nutrition and are often packed with sugar. Nutrient-rich snack foods will satisfy your hunger and rescue you the quick-energy-quick-crash cycle triggered by eating sweets.

Our grocery store has a huge selection of snacks to empower your workouts, take a break with at work, or pack in your picnic basket.

Dried fruit

If you’re struggling with sugar cravings, dried fruit can help you resist cookies and candy bars. The drying process concentrates the natural fruit sugars so that you get to enjoy some satisfying sweetness while consuming nutritious whole foods. Dried fruit also presents an opportunity to increase your intake of plant-based foods. Shop our bulk food section for dried apples, bananas, pineapple, goji berries, cherries, and more.

Dark chocolate

Chocoholics can indulge in dark chocolate. Many bars contain minimal added sugar, and the high levels of cacao provide your cells with the antioxidants that they need.

Nuts

Peanuts, almonds, cashews, and other nuts are protein powerhouses. They also contain fats and fiber that help to keep your hunger at bay. You might worry about the fat content in nuts, but our bodies need fats to function, and nuts represent an ideal source of vegetarian fat.

On top of all of that, nuts are good sources of magnesium, potassium, and folate. When it comes to healthy snacks, they are one of the best options. You get a satisfying crunch and can choose from salted or unsalted varieties.

Granola

Unless you’re observing a strictly low-carb diet, granola offers a delicious and crunchy way to access the goodness of whole grains, seeds, nuts, and dried fruits. Many blends contain beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. At Famous Foods, we have a large selection of granola blends, including HempPlus Organic, Blueberry Chia, and Raisin Almond Cluster.

Famous Foods is the premier place in Vancouver to find the healthiest snack foods, like dark chocolate covered goji berries, rice crackers, wasabi green peas, and yogurt almonds. Our grocery store has so many kinds of trail mix that you’ll have to take a very long hike to try them all.
