Ladies, what do you eat in-between meals and what do you pack your kids for snack-time? We increasingly receive inquiries relating to recommended foods between breakfast and lunch and lunch and dinner – which foods are healthy, low in calories, a quick-fix, etc. In general, all the efforts we put into prepping main meals will be regarded as useless if the snacks we consume are unhealthy and inadequate. Although there are plenty of recipes and ideas for nutritious snacks, most women do not have time to prepare them. Instead, they end up grabbing the first thing that comes to mind – a cookie, biscuit, muffin…anything available at that given moment.
As an ideal snack, experts recommend fruits, that is- one piece of fruit in the afternoon and one in the evening. In addition to being low in calories, fruit contains huge amounts of vitamins and minerals that are needed as part of a balanced diet. Last week we wrote about how “fruit day” is becoming a frequent regime among women because it is the most natural and easiest way to cleanse the body. In this regard, a piece of fruit as a snack seems like the simplest solution.
When Maria and Maxim are on the move, Maria always brings him a pack of chopped and washed Iceberg Salat Centar’s fruit called “Healthy and Ready Snack”. This way, she does not have to think about what Maxim will snack on and whether that snack will be healthy and nutritious.
However … eating fruit all the time often gets dull. With this in mind, Maria decided to listen to experts and prepare fruits in the form of fruit salads to introduce a little excitement to her daily menu. Follow her recipes:
