AFTERNOON AND EVENING SNACKS

FRESH FRUITS

There are times during the day when we start feeling quite hungry. Usually that time we tend to snack on anything that will satisfy our hunger. Some of us will snack on potato chips, chocolates, lollies, biscuits, etc. As soon we use these snacks to satisfy our hunger, it may become a daily habit and we will be adding those unnecessary bad calories to our body. Some of these products are loaded with salt and sugar (simple carbohydrates). Also companies of packaged foods are smart and they tend to add addictive flavors to these foods, so we may re-consume them very often.

Why not have your fridge loaded with fresh fruits. Fruits such as water melon, melon, grapes, oranges are rich in water, fiber and Vitamin C. Eating these fruits during afternoon and before dinner definitely takes that hunger away. These fruits tend to fill our body with water and fiber, thus making us feel less hungry. A bowl of water melon in the evening may make you full enough to skip dinner. Also we can use these fruits while reading, watching movies, at work or during any other activity during which we tend to snack more.

The advantage of consuming fresh fruits for snacking helps us to maintain our energy levels, fight bad cholesterol, keep blood sugar and blood pressure normal, as well as helps us to achieve those difficult weight loss goals.

  1. Great article…mid afternoon is the worst snacking period and most susceptible to junk food:) Fruits are a good way to combat that energy dip!

    • Hi,

      Yes you are absolutely correct. Especially for people who have 8- 5 shifts, time before lunch and time before dinner is the worst. Fruits are a great way to stay hydrated. Some people also have dry fruit, as they are loaded with nutrients. I prefer fruits because they keep me hydrated and provide necessary nutrients and minerals to my brain.

      Thanks for visiting and sharing your word.

  2. I certainly will. In fact I am going straight out now to buy some fresh fruit for this evening. I am off to Cyprus tomorrow and hot climates always give me a craving for fresh fruit so the next week should not be a problem. It’s when I get back to the UK that is going to be tough, but when I pass the chocolate and potato chip isle, I’ll just remember your post.

  3. Thanks for posting this. I thought you were talking about me because I do snack on all those bad things. But, now that I have read your post, I am going to ensure I have plenty of freshly cut fruit in the fridge. Good bye chocolate and potato chips, hello pineapple, melon and plums.

    • Hi Hugh’s,

      No worries. I am glad you like the post. In the past it became a bad habit for me during exams, movies, just to eat junk. Lately I have been watching cricket with bowl of fresh fruit. I get full very easily on watermelon and melon. Now I don’t have to worry to spend too much time on the couch. hahaha. That is great news. Say goodbye to all the junk. Let me know how you feel about it, after you try it for next few days.

      Regards,
