Who doesn’t love Maggie? Everyone does. And a steaming bowl of Maggie does wonders on your hungry stomach – no doubt about it. But as a matter of fact, you know why it isn’t a healthy choice. It contains refined flour which is harmful and might result in stomach infections. Go for a masala oats instead. It will not only fill you up for good, but also give you more or less the same tangy taste you were looking forward to. Go Oats!

Chocolate love? Be sensible and pick that Protein bar!

The love for chocolates can never die-true. But eating lots can jeopardize your health and cause oral problems. Instead, choose a protein bar to satisfy your hunger when you feel like munching. Not only this will satiate your cravings but also turn out to be a much healthier option in comparison to that chocolate bar! And you won’t end up eating lots of them because just one bar will full you up.

Wanna sip on a Cold drink? Trust me…. Fruit Smoothies are much better!

Grabbing a can of cold drink might seem an easier option when hunger strikes. And it very well might put a stop on your cravings for a couple of minutes- but it certainly won’t fulfill the required need. So why not go for a smoothie. It can incorporate any fruit, raisins and even nuts of your choice.  Go crazy and still stay healthy!

BAKED is the new fried!

Baked chips are way less oily and healthier in comparison to any regular chips. Use healthy dips and enjoy the baked goods without any tension.
