5 Simple And Tasty Snacks To Stay Healthy During Quarantine

Eat healthy at home

We have created a workout routine you can do at home, you should check it out: 5-Day Home Workout Routine

Eating at home has its pros and cons. It's a good thing since you're eating out less, but it could mean more junk food cravings if you don't make the right food choices. In this article we will give you tips and snack examples to help you eat healthy during the quarantine.

Have a grocery list

It may sound very simple, but the best way to prevent junk food cravings is to avoid buying them in the first place.

I know it can be difficult to wait in line to get your groceries. You may want to stock up on your favourite chips "just in case", but that's where the mind tricks you.

Make a grocery list and stick to it.

Buy better quality foods

Now that you have more time to cook, you should consider investing in buying better quality food.

Eat more often

When you used to have a routine, sometimes you wouldn't feel like eating since you were probably busy at work or on the go. Now, all we think about is eating.

Eating more often is not necessarily a bad thing if you're eating the right food.

It simply means that instead of having your three regular meals:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

Now you can have a nutrition plan, such as:

  • Breakfast
  • Snack 1
  • Lunch
  • Snack 2
  • Dinner

Healthy snacks will help you keep you feel full to prevent junk food cravings while remaining at the same caloric intake.
