Are you one of those people who just love snacking at work? Or, when watching your favorite TV serial? Most people choose to just press the button of a vending machine while at work and get some quick snack which will turn out to be a disaster for their diet.
Choosing the wrong snack can impair your metabolism, add pounds to your body weight, and throw your blood sugar levels out of control.
We understand that the stress at work can make you turn to different chips and sweets as a way to relax and forget about the problems. However, you’ll quickly become frustrated about eating the sugar-rich muffin, triggering even more cravings.
But, there’s s a healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Instead of munching those sugar-, carb-, and fat-rich snacks, you can make your own at home using nothing but natural, healthy ingredients. What’s more, it’s tastier than the boring options from the vending machine you get every day.
It requires just two ingredients, both of which contain many nutrients important for your health. What’s more, they are popular diabetes-friendly foods, so this snack is perfect for those who want to control their blood sugar levels.
They are apples and cinnamon. Apples contain fiber which slows the absorption and digestion of carbs, thus preventing blood sugar spikes from appearing rapidly. Also, they contain polyphenols which help reduce insulin resistance and blood glucose levels.
Slice the apples with a sharp knife in as thin pieces as you can. Make sure the core is in the middle of each piece. Then, lay the slices on 2 baking sheets and don’t forget to leave some space in between them. Then, sprinkle some cinnamon on top of the apple slices.
Next, put the trays in a preheated oven at 220 F. After baking them for an hour, flip them over and bake for one more hour.
All you have to do now is pack your snack and take it to work. Enjoy!
From now on, you can enjoy eating a delicious snack without spiking your blood sugar and adding pounds to your weight.
