Healthy Snacks

Now, we all like a snack, or 3, during the day, and below I've listed a couple of the healthy snacking choices, and the benefits they bring to our bodies.

UNSALTED PEANUTS - Stronger Muscle - The most protein-rich nuts on the shelves. 1.8g of protein is needed per kg of body weight, in order to build muscle. A handful of peanuts will give you 20% of your RDA. 

OATCAKES - Lower Cholesterol - These can help lower your LDL (bad) cholesterol and even reduce your risk of heart disease. Rich in fibre. 25% of your RDA of fibre per 4 oatcakes.

APPLES - Sharper Mind - Hydration is vital for staying alert mentally, and apples contain 95% water-content. Studies in the US also show they help prevent age-related memory decline.
