Late night doesn’t have to mean chips, soda, and pizza. These healthy snacks are just as satisfying without wrecking your diet.
Health is 20% exercise and 80% diet. It’s easy to justify a gigantic slice of decadent chocolate cake with a run through the park, but in reality, you can’t outrun a bad diet. Chips, cookies, candy, and pizza do more damage than you think. The popular fatty snacks increase your waistline and wreak serious havoc on your body. Trans fats and cholesterol build up in your arteries; added sugar causes glucose spikes; excess fat, toxins, and preservatives tax your body and can accumulate over time. In the long term, these consequences of a bad diet can build up to heart disease and diabetes.
A balanced diet is key. It’s perfectly fine to indulge in treats and desserts on special occasions. Treating yourself once in a while can help you maintain a positive body image and a healthy relationship with food. Diet-related diseases are rarely caused by occasional treats. Rather, they are caused by years of bad eating habits. These include frequent pizza dinners, daily sugary treats, and, of course, late night snacking.
As part of a healthy diet, it’s important to incorporate healthy snacks. These 15 clean eating snacks have all the decadence of late night treats with none of the guilt. They’re made with wholesome ingredients and minimal processing. Sit back, relax, and munch away on these clean eating healthy snacks!
