Winter Essentials Series: 3 Healthy YL Snacks To Prevent Winter Weight Gain
From the cold weather to the long overcast days, winter can sure do a number on your appetite. For many people, it’s so easy to put on extra weight because we just crave “comfort” from food. The problem is we tend to eat more calories than we typically burn during the winter so along with packing on extra layers of clothes to keep warm, our bodies pack on extra pounds. Yikes! I shared in a previous post 4 of the essential oils I’m using to kick hunger to the curb (Click here to read), and today I’ll share with you 3 more powerful weapons for fighting winter weight gain: healthier snacks. Try these snacks that are full of vitamins and nutrients to keep you full in between meals. And because we know you won’t eat it otherwise, they actually taste good too. Here are snack options you can enjoy, guilt-free!
Slique (Fruit & Nut) Bars
Essential nutrition of Slique Bars comes from exotic nuts and berries, including baru nuts, goldenberries, and wolfberries. The bar also contains cacao nibs that are prepared using a unique dehydration process. Our nibs are dried using low heat to preserve more of the cacao’s rich health benefits. What makes this snack bar different from others is the use of potato skin extract that contains a special protein to help increase your body’s release of cholecystokinin (CCK). The body uses CCK to signal to your brain that food has been eaten, promoting feelings of fullness sooner and for longer periods of time, thereby managing hunger. Unlike so-called “fat burners” found on the market today, this all-natural ingredient does not stimulate metabolism, cause jitters, or have other side effects generally associated with commonly used weight-management ingredients.
Powered by these key components, Slique Bars can help you feel fuller longer. They are the perfect snack to help you avoid mindless eating between meals and before or after workouts!
Wolfberry Crisp Bars
Wolfberry Crisp™ bars are delicious, naturally-sweetened meal replacement bars. These delicious bars will satisfy your appetite, provide an antioxidant boost to your immune system and supply high-quality protein for muscle building. Wolfberry Crisp bars are all-natural and certified dairy kosher.
