Healthy snacks for women.

Some healthy snacks to go for women.

I am still struggling with amenorrhea (not having a period - read all about my story here) and so i had to change my diet a little to work on the issue. One of my goals is to be snacking more often to be able to eat more kalories and gain weight more quickly. But even if you are not after gaining weight, knowing how to prepare healthy snacks is quite important and fun. So here are some of my favorite snacks I take with me to university, to the city or little trips. It's always good to be prepared, right?
The boxes I used in this post are by EcoBrotbox. They are made of fair trade and sustainable stainless steel, are lasting a lifetime and free of any nasty chemicals. I love them, especially cause you are able to use different little compartments to fit everything you want.

Some really great foods to eat (especially for us women) are:


Couscous: 

  • Boosts Immune System: The natural antioxidant qualities of selenium help fight against toxins in the bloodstream
  • Improves Muscle Mass: Selenium is one of the important parts of developing muscle mass (perfect for that booty gain)

Beetroot: 

  • Improves Liver Health: stimulates the functions of the liver and keeps it healthy.
  • Boosts Energy: Contains a significant amount of carbohydrates that provide energy.


Cheese:

  • High fat content: Perfect to gain weight, if you need to. 

Dates:

  • Strengthen Bones: The amounts of minerals found in dates make them a superfood for strengthening bones and fighting off osteoporosis.
  • Promote Weight Gain: Dates contain a super high amount of kcalories, so its a great way to gain weight the healthy way.

Strawberries:

  • Improves Heart Function: High fiber content and phytochemicals to lower the cholesterol immediately.
  • Boosts Immunity: Contains lots of Vitamin C to feed the immune system.

Buckwheat bread:

  • Rich Source of Protein: Buckwheat is one of those valuable foods that contain high-quality proteins, meaning that it has all eight essential amino acids, including lysine
  • Improves Bone Health: Buckwheat is rich in selenium and zinc, both of which are essential trace minerals that the body needs to form strong bones and to continue to regrow damaged or degraded bones as we age.

Green beans:

  • Improve Bone Health: Calcium, found in green beans is integral in preventing bone deterioration and osteoporosis.
  • Eye Care: Certain specific carotenoids that are found in green beans can prevent macular degeneration, which is a decrease in vision and eye function.

Kiwi:

  • Induces Better Sleep: It is a source of serotonin which helps promote better sleep.
  • Skin Care: Kiwifruit helps maintain healthy and smooth skin due to its significant contribution in the process of collagen synthesis.

Pear:

  • Improves Bone Health: The high mineral content of pears includes magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, calcium, and copper.
  • Speeds up Healing: Vitamin C is also an essential part of synthesizing new tissue in various organs and cellular structures of the body. 

Rice waffles:

  • Improves Metabolism: Rice is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals like niacin, vitamin D, calcium, fiber, iron, thiamine, and riboflavin.
  • Prevents Cancer: Whole grain rice, like brown rice, is rich in insoluble fiber that can protect against many types of cancer.


Coconut:

  • Keeps Organs Healthy: The presence of medium chain triglycerides and fatty acids in coconut oil helps in preventing liver diseases
  • Relieves organs: Coconut oil is very soothing and it helps in removing stress

Oatflakes:


  • Controls blood sugar levels: Since oats help stabilise blood sugar and reduce risk of type-2 diabetes, diabetics should consume oats regularly
  • Rich source of magnesium:  Oats are also a rich source of magnesium, which is key to enzyme function and energy production.

Honey:

  • Boosts Energy and weight gain: Great for some quick energy.

Soj yoghurt:

  • Healthy Weight Gain: Soj provides a decent amount of fiber and protein, which can help in weight gain, if eaten in large quantities.
  • Improves Bone Health: Soybeans have a high vitamin and mineral content and the impressive levels of calcium, magnesium, copper, selenium, and zinc.
