♥Snacking♥… we all do it, but few of us know how to do it well. In truth, finding nutritious, portable, and natural snacks can be a challenge, so let’s break down the snacking barrier and solve your snacking woes, once and for all!
Here are my top tips for sane snacking:
♥Include a source of protein: Pistachios are approximately 20% protein by weight, offering approximately 7.5g per Borna 30g Snack Pack! Snacking on a protein-rich snack helps to control our appetite, to make your snack a satisfying one. Including protein at snacks can also help to fight weight gain and controlling blood sugar levels.
♥Look to heart-healthy fats: Including a source of heart-healthy fats in your snack can help to control blood sugar levels, and keep you feeling full. Thankfully, pistachios are a great source of heart-loving monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
♥Fill up on fibre: with a serving of pistachios providing you with ¬10% of your daily recommended fibre intake, these green nuts can help you reach your goal of 30g fibre per day. Fibre not only helps our digestive system “stay regular” but is associated with weight management and blood sugar controls. Fibre helps us feel fuller longer, which means snacking on pistachios will help you make it to your next meal time.
♥Keep it simple: You’ve got enough on your plate. Let Borna take care of the portioning and packaging with our Roasted & Salted Snack Packs and unique Naturally Flavoured Kernels, which are prepacked, portioned and ready to be tossed into your bag for when hunger strikes.
