These healthy snacks are quick and easy to prepare!
Oats – This whole grain is a great source of complex carbs, fibre and phytonutrients. Oats can help support the digestive system, lower cholesterol and the risk of colorectal cancer and provide lasting energy by keeping blood sugar levels stable. The fibre can also help remove potential carcinogens and promote healthy gut bacteria.
Carrots – Carrots are a great source of beta-carotene which our bodies convert into vitamin A. Vitamin A supports immune function, skin and mucus membranes, and eye health. Carrots contain many types of phytonutrients that are well studied for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects
Almonds – Almonds are called the king of nuts because they are high in calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, folic acid, EFA’s, and protein. Loaded with phytonutrients, they are called the anti-cancer nut.
