What Makes A Healthy Office Snack?

We can claim just about anything is healthy if we try hard enough.

This is where that internet meme pops up that claims chocolate is the same as a salad because it comes from cocoa… which comes from a tree. 🤷

But that doesn’t necessarily make it healthy (dark chocolate, on the other hand, is a different story).

What does make food healthy is the nutrients you’ll find within, like fiber, proteins, and healthy fats.

But what do these food nutrients do, what are their functions? Read on to learn more about the most common nutrients you’ll find in your snacks.

Not sure if you’ll be able to get through all 50 of our healthy snacks in one sitting?

Fiber

Fiber is one in a long list of good things that keep our body alive and functioning.

It can be found in a multitude of food items such as vegetables, fruits, and grains.

What you probably didn’t know is that fiber and probiotics go hand in hand. What fiber does, is it feeds the good bacteria in your gut so your immune system and your digestive health are always kept in check.

Antioxidants

Here’s one word you might associate with antioxidants: free radicals.

Free radicals are the bad guys that ruin everything. Essentially they wreak havoc on our healthy cells, resulting in cardiovascular disease, aging, and autoimmune disorders.

Now here’s the bad news: free radicals are a part of our natural process. They’re a byproduct of normal metabolic processes and can be found in the environment in the form of radiation and drugs.

Here’s the good news though. Antioxidants serve as a way to cushion the damage caused by free radicals and combat their detrimental effects.

Protein

You may be wondering why proteins are important.

For one, protein allows our body to grow and repair muscle tissue. Without it, our muscles would not have the structure that they do.

Speaking of structure, proteins are also responsible for giving the rest of our body structure. Keratin and collagen, for example, are key for healthy skin, hair, and nails.

Proteins are awesome on so many levels, from regulating our body’s pH to strengthening our immune system and bone health. So next time you’re looking for a healthy snack, look for something loaded with protein.

Vitamins A-Z

OK, so there may not be such a thing as vitamin Z (yet).

BUT, you can bet your bottom dollar that you’re going to consume plenty of vitamins in a single day.  It would be difficult not to come across at least one of these vitamins.

That is of course if you’re consuming a healthy diet.

You’ll find that the majority of vitamin functions include:

  • Energy metabolism
  • Bone health
  • Brain function
  • Red cell production
  • Teeth, bone, and skin health
  • Tissue repair and
  • healthy blood coagulation

For a full list of vitamins and their complete roles, here is a complete overview of vitamins and their role in the body.

Healthy Fats

image of avocados

Most of you know by now that there are healthy fats, and then there are unhealthy fats.

Unsaturated fats and omega-3’s are what we consider healthy fats while unhealthy fats consist of saturated and artificial trans fats.

Healthy fat consumption is crucial to a healthy diet because they are what gives us the energy to get through our day.

Not only that but they protect our heart, brain, and help us absorb those essential vitamins that we mentioned earlier.

Above all, they help to prevent unhealthy levels of toxic LDL cholesterol, they lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and lower blood pressure too.
