Organic Snacks


Snacks are a problem for a lot of people. Three square meals aside, we get hungry at odd times of the day, go to the kitchen to grab a snack, the snack ends up overflowing with fat and calories, and the result is a gradual increase in weight leading to obesity and a slew of other medical problems.

 This entire mess can be avoided with one decisive move, namely you saying no to unhealthy snacks like potato chips and similar packaged munchies and taking up the ones that really matter. After all, snacks do not have to go altogether. Why throw out the idea when you can easily replace them with something organic that boosts your health instead of interfering with it?


  1. Brown Rice

There is much to say about brown rice that has made the wonder-crop a reputed weight-loss option. We will cover a few of its benefits here.


  • Because it is rich in fiber, it caters to ideal digestion and bowel movements, and therefore promotes weight loss. In addition to consistent bowel movements, brown rice is known for granting that ‘full and satisfied’ feeling, meaning you will not feel the urge to eat more than your body needs.
  • Also, thanks to its rich fiber content, brown rice battles signs of colon cancer. By latching onto cancerous substances before the toxins can group up into something truly dangerous, the fiber in brown rice helps flush the bad stuff before they can grab onto the walls of the colon.
  • Not all fat is bad. Some types are good for you, and brown rice contains naturally occurring oils (the ‘good fat’) that level out cholesterol amounts in your body.
