Healthy Jar Snacks

For a healthy life style, its crucial to eat small healthy snacks or healthy jar snacks through the day between your lunch and dinner. So you could be snacking atleast 4 to 5 times a day or every 2 to 3 hours. The reason is simple, never starve yourself as you want to keep your blood sugar levels normal through the day and that enables fat burning.

Hunger can attack us anytime during the day and sometimes at night too. Even the healthiest eaters often reach out to unhealthy snacks when hunger strikes at odd hours, because they do not have time to cook anything fresh at that moment. This section on healthy jar snacks will save you from this predicament. Keep some of these dry snacks handy, stored in airtight jars, so you can instantly answer any hunger pangs without compromising on the health quotient.

Healthy Jar Snacks made on Tava

The true essence of enjoying a jar snack is its crunchiness. Why always turn to deep-fried snacks for this fun? Next time try making nourishing snacks on tava. Khakhras to nimki to shakarpara…. You can make it all…..

You may put forth the point that khakhras are most times healthy, made with healthy flours. But think of the oodles of ghee you use in cooking this Gujarati delicacy. Drive away this habit and make Bajra Methi Khakra made with very little ghee while providing 2.3 g of protein. If you want to top up your iron levels then include greens or other iron rich ingredients like ragi flour and sesame seeds while kneading the khakhra dough. Try a unique option like Quinoa Red Chawli Leaves Khakhra and Nachni and Sesame Khakhra. Break the khakras into small bits and put them in a jar. Enjoy them at home watching television or carry them to work to share with your friends.

Well here’s another bit of surprise for the Gujjus. We have made shakarpara also on the tava… Check the recipe of Beetroot Shakarpara.

A heath touch can be added to jar snacks of Bengali cuisine too. Nimki, their famous snack, is all about making a dough with refined maida, rolling it and cutting it into long strips of squares and deep-frying them. Next time you think of Nimki, try its version made on tava… We have options like Moong Dal Nimki and Palak Til Jowar Nimki

Baked Jar Snacks

Hmm, fried jar snacks…. Fried chaklis, samosa and kachori are too yummy to be resisted. But they add on unnecessary calories and inches to your waistline. The excess fat adds on inflammation to your body. 

Drop these fried snacks and opt for their healthy variants like Baked SevBaked Bhakarwadi and Non Fried Chakli. These snacks in reality would save your time invested in cooking too. This is because you just need to swirl them on baking tray and leave them for baking. It saves the time of physically standing for deep-frying. Plus, it saves calories! Do not miss out on this dual offer.

For mid-day refreshment break you can stock up on crackers too… Carry a healthy dip with you and you will be all set to not reach out for any unhealthy snack. Make crackers like Ragi and Oat Crackers and Crunchy Cumin Seeds Crackers

Healthy Jar Snacks – for a Sweet Tooth

Why look at jar snacks as dry snacks only? Snacks like Date and Nut Coconut Cocoa Balls which take only 15 minutes to make can be stored in a jar too. One ball gives you only 69 calories along with the protein from nuts.

 Alternatively try Oats Vegan Granola Bars with Peanut Butter. One bar is enough to meet your evening snack needs. Peanut butter is full of protein for cell health, oats lend fiber to keep gut clear and almonds and flax seeds give MUFA (mono unsaturated fatty acids) to build healthy heart

Of course, these might not have an extended shelf life like other dry snacks. So consume them within 3 to 4 days. 

A word of caution here! Do not get carried away with the taste of these sweet treats. Indulge into them occasionally and restrict the portion size. 1 to 2 Date and Nut Balls and only 1 Vegan Garnola Bar is the limit you should set for yourself.
