There is a huge difference between snacking on items that are nutrient dense and has no calories.
Looking at the nutrition facts will give you a breakdown of the nutritional value of the snacks. You can also focus on the ingredients to identify that it's made of the most (first 3 ingredients).
Ask yourself these 3 things:
1) Are you feeling full? Usually, empty calories lead to a feeling of emptiness after eating snacks that really don't add to your wellness in any way. What nutrients are you getting? Examples of nutrients include macro-nutrients e.g. carbohydrates, protein and fats and micronutrients e.g. vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre.
2) Does snacking on this item make you feel happy? How is your mood or energy? When you include snacks that add to your quality of life, you feel positive energy.
3) Is this snack highly processed? The low quality snacks are those that have gone through many processes that cause you to still feel hungry after consumption.
Choosing better leads to a better quality life! This means focus on better snacks that are more fulling, more satisfying and leave you in a positive vibe.
