Snack on the go. Meet your new snack companion.

By 29 January, 2020 No Comments

We all know the bitter-sweet feeling that a good Christmas holiday can leave you with.  January comes around, bringing obligations with it…and we find ourselves face to face with the new year. But here at Velarte, we want to introduce you to your new companion: snacks on the go. We’re going to reveal these snacks’ biggest secrets and strengths, and give you some tips that will help you make the most of them.

From nibbling to snacking.

In order to have enough energy to take on the day, you need to have a healthy diet, eating foods that allow you to bring out your inner superhero. But even Batman sometimes needs Robin’s help to beat the villain. Snacks on the go are making their mark this 2020, getting rid of nibbling and becoming our ally, as we fight against bad eating habits. No more snacking between meals. It’s time to distribute healthy and natural snacks throughout your day instead. In this way, we are taking in fewer calories at once and improving our digestion. These small doses of energy are the perfect solution, allowing you to make the most of your day. 

Not having time isn’t an excuse.

The world is changing and everything is moving faster. It’s hard to get a break, in order to have a proper lunch with your co-workers or a snack with your kids. Snacks on the go allow you to have that break at any time of day and in any place, getting the energy boost that you need without any preparation time.

In addition, they are easy to take with you and don’t normally need to be refrigerated, which makes them perfect for everyday use.  The whole family will be able to make the most of them, from the little ones in the playground, to older ones heading out to play sport.

 Top tips. 

To make the most of these snacks, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • We recommend having one mid-morning and one mid-afternoon, 3 hours before or after a main meal.
  • It is important that you choose snacks that include antioxidants, which prevent fatigue and stress
  • If the snack is low in calories, it can help to prevent weight gain
  • It is a good idea to take snacks into account when planning meals for the week, incorporating variety and balance. This will help ensure that you aren’t tempted by unhealthy options.

Now that you understand the secret to a healthy diet, you need to be consistent, balanced and, above all, creative. Let your imagination run wild and discover the thousands of possible combinations that can be created with snacks. Use them as an accompaniment to breakfast, salads or to create innovative recipes.

There’s nothing to stop you from having energy for all of this year’s best moments!
