Do you find yourself having cravings throughout the day or overeating at meal time? If so, it may be beneficial to think of eating smaller amounts of healthy food throughout the day to keep cravings and binge eating at bay. Curb your cravings and limit overeating at meal time with healthy snacks from Dippin’ Stix. Dippin’ Stix has snacks such as fresh carrots and dip and apples with a variety of dips to make healthy eating easier.

Although there’s really no perfect formula to curb cravings or keep from overeating at meal time, an effort to snack throughout the day is sure to help. Healthy snacking every 2-3 hours keeps your metabolism going and curbs those cravings for salty chips or a sweet treat from the vending machine. Try to limit each snack to 150 calories or less and incorporate protein, such as peanut butter, to aid in staying full. Yogurt and fresh fruit are also excellent options for a healthy snack.

In addition to curbing cravings and overeating, a diet rich in protein, fresh fruits, and vegetables is one that helps keep you sharp and your heart healthy. Heart healthy snacks are typically foods that are low in fat and more filling. For example, a fresh apple with a yogurt dip or peanut butter is a perfect snack when you’re busy with life and need something on the go. Perhaps you have children who are involved in sports or other after school activities. A healthy snack of fruits and vegetables with a tasty dip is sure to fit the bill.

Dippin’ Stix offers nutritious snacks to keep your child on the go and curb your desire to grab salty potato chips or sweet and sugary treats from the vending machine.

Keep Your Brain in Shape with Healthy Snacks from Dippin’ Stix

February 23rd, 2017 · No Comments

When most of us think of being healthy, we think of our waistlines, our muscular system, having a “six-pack,” and the number on the scale. What many of us forget is the fact that our brain needs to be kept healthy and in shape, and one of the best ways to do that is by eating a healthy diet. Dippin’ Stix provides healthy snacks to help get and keep that brain in shape!

There are foods and diets that definitely help, and others that harm the brain over time. For example, foods such as red meat, cheese, butter, and fried or fast food should always be consumed in moderation. Vegetables, leafy greens, nuts, berries, whole grains, fish, poultry, and the use of olive oil instead of butter are all considered healthy foods and have the green light to enjoy.

If an individual consistently consumes foods containing a large amount of fats, they may be headed to a cognitive decline more rapidly than those who indulge in a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables and foods that are low in fat.

At Dippin’ Stix, we provide nutritious snacks that are not only heart healthy but “brain-healthy” as well. Our crisp, peeled baby carrots and dip, and fresh apples with yogurt peanut butter or caramel dip are sure to not only help with the number on the scale, the “six pack,” or your waistline, but benefit your cognitive function as well. We all want to be healthy and smart in our olden, golden years, so now is the time to convert to a heart-healthy and brain-healthy diet with snacks from Dippin’ Stix.

Visit a retailer near you to pick up some of our conveniently packaged snacks that you can grab while on the go, send with your kids to school or sporting events, or just enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Keep your brain in shape with healthy snacks from Dippin’ Stix!

Eat Healthy Before and After the Thanksgiving Holiday With Snacks From Dippin’ Stix

November 8th, 2016 · No Comments

The holiday season brings extra calories in our more-than-normal hefty meals. Although our Thanksgiving meals may include more than our fair share of daily vegetables, we tend to over-consume in other food categories such as with pumpkin pie and bread pudding. While Thanksgiving is about family and giving thanks for what we have, a big focus always seems to be on the food that we serve. That’s why it’s important to eat healthy foods prior to and after the Thanksgiving holiday. Dippin’ Stix can help you meet that goal with fresh fruits and vegetables served with savory and healthy dips.

If you’re a parent, you know the importance of keeping your kids satisfied with snacks throughout the day and you also know how equally important it is to feed them healthy snacks. For example, sending along money to school or sporting events to purchase a snack probably won’t leave them making the best and most healthy choices. You can easily take care of that problem by packing some single serve snacks made of healthy fruits and vegetables such as carrots with ranch dip or apples with yogurt or caramel dip.

But it’s not just kids that need to stick to a healthy snack.
