Great Healthy Foods To Take With You While On The Go
With so many people having busy schedules it is hard to get a good healthy, nutritious snack in while working. This is the reason I decided to write this article. Two of the best food choices to keep you from breaking your diet are Bananas and Apples. They are portable, nutritious and as long as they are used sparingly and within the parameters specified by your fat loss program, you will not have any issues.The best part about these foods is that they can be taken with you and do not require special attention such as heating or storing in a refrigerator.
Banana Nutrition Facts
Bananas….are they really that good for you? Well, bananas are a simple carbohydrate that yields about 28 grams of carbohydrates. They contain Vitamin C, potassium and dietary fibers. Vitamin C is great for helping your immune system from getting sick or an infection. What I love about bananas is the fact that they do not contain any cholesterol, fat or sodium.
Bananas contain three natural sugars, which are fructose, sucrose, and glucose. As a result, bananas can give you an energy boost and is a great choice for a health snack. Always consume your carbs with some protein. So remember to either carry an RTD or a protein powder in a Ziploc bag or shaker bottle.
Apple Nutrition Facts
Apples are one of my favorite choices for a snack when I am on the go. I do understand that getting a good meal in with a busy schedule is not that easy. An apple is a great way to prevent you from breaking your diet.
It is best to eat an apple with the skin still on it. Apples contain around 80 calories, fiber, calcium vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. The potassium is good for heart health, reducing the risk of a stroke and even Type II Diabetes. It can even help with bowel movements. Apples contain soluble and insoluble fibers. Soluble Fibers allow sugars to be released at a slower rate and help to bind fatty acids. It can even lower cholesterol and LDL cholesterol which is the bad cholesterol. Insoluble Fibers help to move food through your intestines. Again, consume with some form of protein.
