World’s most seen tournament, FIFA World Cup is perhaps keeping you up late till the night. Watching the game with friends or solo is usually accompanied by some unhealthy snacking. You can turn to healthy snacking too. Wondering how? Read on and you will know.
Computer screens, dogs, your paycheck: Some things should only come in size XL. But at snack time, smaller really can be better—even if your appetite feels super-sized. It’s just a matter of figuring out exactly the right combos to keep you full and satisfied. So, here’s a list of 5 nutritious snacks that you can nibble during binge watching FIFA:
Healthy Oven-Baked Chips
Replace greasy, fried potato chips with this healthy alternative, which is made by breading sliced zucchini and baking it in the oven. A dip in fat-free milk helps the breadcrumb coating stick, and Parmesan cheese gives the chips a deliciously crispy texture. Consider serving alongside hummus, carrots, or other crudité.
For a totally guiltless dessert, dish up a bowl of strawberries and reddi whip which is a fiber-rich combo. The sweet mix of raspberries, yogurt and honey does the job until you can break away from your desk for a full meal. Lunch left something to be desired? This savory dish made up of sliced tomato with a sprinkle of feta and olive oil will make your taste buds happy.
Egg Whites With Whole Wheat Toast
When you want a nutritious evening meal that will hold you until dinner, eggs and toasted bread offer a hearty option. This protein-and-carb duo gives you a light but energizing start when you have a belly-busting dinner on your calendar.
Snack time just got exciting with this energy boosting Frozen Yogurt Bark; Greek yogurt sweetened with honey and topped with chocolate chips, strawberries and coconut!
When you crave a cool treat, dip into smooth and yummy frozen yogurt! Plus, it’s nowhere near as high-calorie as ice cream.
Starbucks Tall Skinny Latte
If you’re thinking about cutting back on fat, you needn’t feel like you’re making a compromise. Once you start doing it though, you may realize you’re not actually giving up that much.
