Healthy Snacks – Healthy Office Snack Options


Hello Friends! Welcome to Fit Tuber. Today, we will talk about some healthy snack
options that you can easily take along to your office, school, college or whenever you
are travelling. Now, you are already familiar with these foods. But it is all about combining them in the
right way so that your snack becomes balanced and your body feels satiated. Take apple for an example. If you eat one apple that might not be enough
to suppress your hunger. Now, if you eat two apples that would actually
be an overdose of carbohydrates. Now, combining this apple with peanut butter
or roasted peanuts will actually make you satiated very easily. Psychologically and scientifically, when we
combine two or more foods our body feels more satiated. All the snack options that we are going to
discuss today are on the same lines. Moreover, these foods are cheap and easily
available in the Indian market throughout the year. Now, these snack options are for one and all. It doesn’t matter if you workout or not,
you are a man or woman, young or old. It is for everybody. Most importantly, these snack options will
help you stay away from the unhealthy food outside. Now, in India no snack is complete without
a chai or Indian tea. And I promise, you can include Indian tea
or green tea with any of the snack options that we are going to discuss today. Just make sure that you keep sugar to minimum. If possible, use natural sweeteners like stevia. So without any further delay, let’s get
started. First is Makhane, also known as Phool Makhane
or Lotus seeds. Now my mother is head over heels in love with
makhane. She takes them to her workplace everyday and
she tell me Vivek these are so filling, so crunchy that it feels like having popcorn. Now lotus seeds are very healthy. They are low in calories and rich in minerals. They are also high in fibre and have some
amount of protein as well. They are super low in sodium. So it becomes a great snacking option for
somebody who is suffering from high blood pressure. You can just roast them in a kadhai with a
pinch of salt or microwave them for a few minutes. Trust me, you will love them. In my opinion, makhane are satiating in itself
but if you want you can have one handful of unsalted roasted peanuts along with them. Next is my all time favourite, bhuna chana
or roasted chickpeas. Now, they are also extremely filling and very
tasty. Roasted chickpeas are a great source of complex
carbohydrates and also have some amount of protein. Even after consuming 2 large handfuls of roasted
chickpeas, you will hardly get 15 grams of carbohydrates but your stomach will be full. So you can combine them with one handful of
unsalted roasted peanuts to get healthy fats and some amount of protein. Next option is fruits and nuts. Now, you can use any fruit apple, banana,
orange or whatever seasonal fruits that are available around you. And combine them with one handful of nuts
like badam, cashews, walnuts, peanuts etc. Now you are getting carbohydrates from fruits
and healthy fats and protein from the nuts. All in all it becomes a well balanced, filling
and nutritious snack option. This takes me to my next snack option which
is banana peanut butter roti. Now take one whole wheat roti and apply one
tablespoon of peanut butter on it. Add one banana to it and you can just roll
it and have it. it is a very tasty, filling and nutritious
snack option. Next is carrots and cucumbers. Now only carrots and cucumbers may not be
enough to fill your tummy. So you can actually add two handfuls of roasted
chickpeas and one handful of unsalted roasted peanuts along with it. Now you are getting vitamins and minerals
from carrots and cucumbers, carbohydrates and some amount of protein from chickpeas
and healthy fats and again some amount of protein from peanuts. This is how you combine the foods to make
your snack filling and balanced. Next is again one of my favourites, boiled
chana chaat. Now, it is very easy to prepare it. All you need to do is, boil the chana. Add onion, tomato, cucumbers and season it
with salt, pepper, tomato ketchup and lemon. Just mix it well and it is ready to go. You need not boil chana everyday. You can boil it in bulk and store in refrigerator
for 7 days. There can be a lot of variations to this chaat. Instead of using black chana, you can even
use chhole, rajma or sprouts. This takes me to my next snack option which
is very similar, egg white chaat. Replace black chana with egg whites and your
egg white chaat is ready. This is a great way to get over the bland
taste of egg whites. Now because egg whites are a source of lean
protein so you can even add one roti to it. Next snack options could be egg white bhurji
or egg white omelette. Now, you might be thinking that should we
have egg whites in summer? Definitely. They won’t cause you pimples. It is a myth. So friends, these were some healthy snack
options. I would suggest you to keep them handy with
yourself, always. Let me know in the comment section which snack
option did you like the most. And also share with me some of your healthy
snack ideas. So friends I hope you found this video helpful. Well, if you did, do give it a thumbs up. And also, please do remember to subscribe
