Posted by admin in Givingtreesnacks, Uncategorized | 0 comments

It’s 11 am or 4pm and you are starving?! It’s so tempting to reach for sweets, crisps or chocolate bars when you’re hit by a snack attack. Your snack time tells everything about your health! Healthy snacking can improve your overall health when you get the right snack. In this article you’ll find all the tips to get you on the healthy track from returning from your Jolly Holidays to work/studies!

First to avoid extreme hunger, you should eat a proper breakfast and lunch full of vitamins and good sources of protein. Or some nutritionists recommend to eat small meals every 3 or 5 hours.

At Giving Tree HQ we are big fans of healthy snacks but what are the right snacks to eat?

Healthy snacks need to contain the right ratio of nutrients, with the right calories, that will help keep your body energized and help you lose weight.

Why Giving Tree snack is the perfect healthy snack?

Our snack will keep your energy levels up and gives you more opportunities to get in all your nutritional needs.

Giving Tree snacks are high in:

Fibre

Fibre helps improve digestion and keeps you from binging on fats and sugars.

Protein

Protein fuels the growth of lean muscle mass, which boosts metabolic rate and increases calorie burn. Also it regulates concentration and alertness.

Carbohydrate 

Many of us naturally reach for carbohydrates when we’re feeling down because they help lift our mood by boosting the brain chemical serotonin. But instead of eating cookies or sweets which will give you a quick energy burst, and then  followed by a crash that can leave you hungry, cranky, sleepy, and unable to concentrate.
