Apple and Peanut Butter for a Healthy Snack


healthy low calorie snacks foodsIf you want a quick and healthy snack that will keep your energy levels high, an apple with some peanut butter is your perfect choice. This snack can be made in literally seconds and its also the ideal snack for packing up for a quick meal at work or when you're on the road. Apples are low in calories, low in fat and low in sodium. They contain vitamins and minerals as well as fiber. Another great benefit of apples is the high water content of the fruit. Choose from delicious Gala, Fuji, Granny Smith and other types of apples which all go great with peanut butter.

One of the health benefits of peanut butter is the amount of fiber it has. Fiber helps maintain a healthy colon and also contributes to helping the body regulate blood glucose levels as well as fight bad cholesterol. The key is choosing 100% natural peanut butter with no added sugar. Look at the ingredients list on the back of the jar. It should simply list peanuts and salt. That's it! If it lists sugar, high fructose corn syrup or any other ingredients other than simply peanuts and salt, then put down the jar and look for another healthier choice.
