Healthy Snacks by Mr. Green Juice


If late afternoon hunger pangs leave you longing for a snack, there's no reason to deny yourself. Just be sure to choose foods that fit into a heart-healthy eating pattern.

A small snack in the afternoon curbs your appetite so you're not completely starving when you sit down to dinner, explains Liz Moore, a dietitian at Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. That can help you control your portion sizes and avoid overeating—a common cause of weight gain.

Low-fiber, easily digested carbs found in refined grains tend to raise your blood sugar, which can leave you hungry again in a few hours. The most healthful snacks contain a combination of healthy proteins, carbs, and fats - here is our line of delicious and balanced snacks: 

Homemade Granola

Our Homemade Granola is a mixture of oats, dehydrated seasonal fruits, and huts. It's a balanced snack that you can top your yoghurt or smoothies with. They're great eaten alone too! 

Raw Oatmeal Cookies

Dehydrated, not baked - these cookies are raw, vegan friendly and pack plenty of energy for those with a sweet tooth but who want to indulge in minimally processed treats. 

Flaxseed Crackers

So much crunch, so much flavour and so much nutrients. Our flaxseed crackers are a vegan and dehydrated alternative to regular crackers. Flaxseeds (also called linseeds) are a rich source of micronutrients, dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, also known as ALA or omega-3.
