Healthy Snack SamplerSnackSamplerSnacking doesn’t have to be a sin when you sign up for a healthier lifestyle. In fact, it can actually be good for you. Many health gurus now recommend eating six small meals throughout the day, which means breaking up your hearty breakfast, lunch, and dinner plates into smaller portions—and gaining three more times to nosh.
The trick is to run past the cookies, crackers, and chips at the supermarket and instead choose whole foods like those found in Thrive Market’s snack sampler that will fuel your body and help you to feel fuller between meals. Doing so will also ensure that you are staying clear from the shady chemicals, preservatives, artificial colors, and GMOs hiding in traditional munchies. In particular, keep your eyes out for:
High fructose corn syrup in chips. Your typical nacho cheese corn chips have tons of artificial colors and other additives (including high fructose corn syrup) that not only increase insulin levels, but are also thought to contribute to hyperactivity and learning disabilities in kids.
TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone) in crackers. Butter crackers and saltines may seem plain enough, but they actually contain loads of sulfites, trans fats, and a mysterious ingredient known as TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone). Used as a preservative to keep oils from going rancid, TBHQ has been linked to skin allergies, nausea, and delirium.16 products
