Power Snacks

Sitting in the office and looking for a healthy snack to munch on?  An organic apple with a handful of raw nuts and a cup of green tea is the perfect power snack!  Here’s why:

Organic Apples:

  • Phytonutrients in apples can help you regulate your blood sugar
  • Excellent source of soluble fiber
  • Great source of vitamin C
  • Helps lower the risk of heart disease
  • Helps lower cholesterol

Raw Organic Nuts:

  • High in omega 3s
  • High in antioxidants
  • Helps reduce the risk of diabetes
  • Helps reduce the risk of breast cancer

Green Tea:

  • Tea contains polyphenols which help speed up the process of burning fat
  • The antioxidants in each variety of tea can help block the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol and increase HDL (good) cholesterol, increasing artery function
  • Tea provides a food source for catechins; this group is more powerful than vitamins C and E in stopping the oxidation process that damages cells as well as having other disease-fighting abilities
  • Research has found a correlation between drinking tea and a decreased risk for certain cancers such as bladder, lung, colon, breast, skin, and esophageal
  • Helps decrease cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Cleanses the body of toxins
