The weather's getting warmer, the flowers are in bloom, and more than likely you'll be peeling off the winter jackets and letting more skin show. After months of being hidden by bulky winter clothes, it's time to slim down and get fit for spring. Along with exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet can help you get fit and lose weight.
Here are 5 healthy springtime snacks to add to your diet today:
Having a batch of frozen grapes in the freezer is a great way to cool down and hydrate on a nice spring day. Grapes are also a great source of vitamin C and vitamin B-6.
Raw Vegetables and Hummus
Eating raw veggies is one of the best ways to get antioxidants. Pair raw veggies like tomatoes, celery, bell peppers, cucumbers and carrots with hummus for dipping to add some protein and extra flavor.
Make your own or pick them up at your local grocery store! Frozen fruit popsicles are a sweet treat perfect for a sunny spring afternoon - and they're healthy!
Mixed Fruit and Berry Salad
Throw all your favorite berries like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries into a bowl, top them off with some honey and greek yogurt and you're good to go. Berries are packed with vitamins and antioxidants and they are also a great alternative to eating sugary snacks.
Whether you're out on the trail, at the beach, having a picnic in the park or just need a quick snack - trail mix is your go-to. Trail mix can provide you with plenty of protein and energy to get you through a long day.
