A snack can be a • small amount of food eaten between meals, or a • light meal eaten quickly or in a casual manner. All types of food may be deemed a snack. It depends upon how it is used not what it is, although some are specifically designed to be snack food. Intense competition in the snack food category has caused some pretty wacky, toxic, things to happen to them, so much so that the phrase ‘junk food’ was coined, and unfortunately - truth in commercial advertising is long gone.

Leftovers, fresh vegetable slices, and even packaged overly processed snacks can provide needed energy and pleasure to keep us running at a steady pace, and can also help us to avoid overeating. Snacks are part of a healthy, balanced diet, providing us with a vital variety of tastes, textures, and nutrients that help balance our mood and energy level. Snacks such as almonds, blueberries, pumpkin seeds, tart cherries, cranberries, sunflower seeds, and good organic popcorn provide rich and varied nutrients in the form of organic acids, antioxidants, and phytonutrients that we may not get otherwise.

Good Reasons...

Nutritionally negative commercial snacks deplete energy and well being as they are adulterated with highly saturated and often hydrogenated (trans) fats, excessive poor quality salt, refined sugar, or worse artificial sweeteners, chemical preservatives, dyes, additives, and a long list of undeclared chemical processing aids. Commercial unhealthy snacks interfere with metabolism creating imbalance that eventually leads to binge eating, excessive weight gain, and a host of other health issues.
