Five healthy snacks to satisfy evening hunger pangs


With increasingly fast-paced lifestyles and busier work schedules, people nowadays have less and less time to eat at leisure. That's why, snacking comes as a natural habit to a lot of us.

While there is nothing wrong with taking quick bites per se, our snack choices generally tend to be unhealthy.

So, here are five healthy snacks that can satisfy your evening hunger pangs.



Almonds

A great source of healthy vitamins and minerals, almonds should be your go-to evening snack.

Almonds, as health experts suggest, help regulate blood cholesterol levels, improve brain health, prevent heart disease, and strengthen your immune system.

Further, they can also aid in weight loss.

Notably, they are also known to keep the risk of colon cancer at bay.



Grapes

As a great source of antioxidants and potassium, grapes are really good for your health. They help slow down ageing, and are good for your eye sight and skin.

You can add them to your salads, or grab a glassful of grape juice, or just munch on some, when you feel hungry.

You should be mindful of the quantity, though.



Popcorn

If prepared without butter, popcorn is a quite a healthy snacking option.

Being sugar-free, fat-free, and low on calories, you can munch on as many popcorn as you want to, without having to worry about gaining weight.

Popped corn is mostly air, so they also help keep excess hunger away without affecting your health.

Plus, they are a great source of dietary fiber.



Oats

With oats, you get carbohydrates, fiber, copper, zinc, Vitamins B1 and B5, among other healthy nutrients.

It also helps lower blood sugar levels, thereby helping you fight Type-2 Diabetes.

Also, being filling in nature, oatmeal can help keep excess hunger in check.

Other benefits of oatmeal are better skin health and lower cholesterol levels.



Chocolate

It is known to improve your cardiovascular health, aid in weight loss, and also boost brain power.

Further, chocolates are also great for reducing stress. It can prevent you from falling prey to symptoms of anxiety and depression.

However, too much of it is obviously harmful.
