Healthy Snacks

In the first installment of the Doctor Of Fitness Recipe Corner I introduced everyone to the benefits of oatmeal and some great recipes to start your morning. The response to these series of recipes was amazing, and many people requested more articles on healthy recipes.

In this section I will show you some great ideas for snacking-on-the-go in today’s fast-paced society.

Over the past fifty years, the pace of American society has been revved up to a break-neck speed. People work longer hours, work on the weekends more frequently, and have less free time. Many people in today’s busy society skip breakfast, skip lunch, and eat fast food on the run.

Skipping meals is one of the worst things one can do from a nutritional standpoint. When one’s blood sugar drops from not eating, one tends to make bad food choices based on convenience. Usually the food choices tend to be somewhere along the lines of coffee and a bagel, a soda and a bag of chips, or a candy bar.

These recipes are meant to serve as an easy alternative to junk food. The recipes can be put together in less than fifteen minutes, and in many cases just five minutes. They are simple to prepare, easy to transport, and taste great as well. They also are filled with healthy fats, are a good source of protein, are full of vitamins and minerals, and provide additional fiber in your diet.
