Living the Dream: Eating while Staying Fit


Who does not want to stay fit while still eating yummy foods? Everyone wants to achieve their dream “beach bodies” without the need to settle to tasteless diet foods. But, HOW? That is the question. Picking the right snacks to help you stay in shape can be difficult and hard to find. Making the wrong choice can undo a healthy diet and leave you unable to reach your fitness goals.

So what’s the right choice? Fiber.

Eating a balanced diet that is high in fiber (21-38g per day) is one way to maintain a healthy body and to stay fit. There are many reasons why a high-fiber diet helps you lose weight; understanding the advantages of fiber and knowing how to get enough fiber in your diet will help you achieve your goals in no time.

Fibers in foods like chickpeas keep you feeling full longer. Chickpeas essentially slow down digestion, thus, making you feel full for a longer period of time. It also help you eat less – which, certainly, has a significant effect on your body size. And, YES! You have heard it right. This kind of food is what you are looking for if you want to achieve your body goals without settling for less.


A variety of fried peas pair well with beer!

Such a crunchy, nutty, addicting snack! What’s further? They are healthy and easy to make. Cram-packed with folate, protein, and zinc. What an awesome food! You can add any spices you like to enhance the taste of it. There are also many ways documented on how to cook it properly. If you feel like curry, go for it. If you want salt and garlic powder, do not hesitate. These are just two of the many ways you can prepare this “SUPERFOODS.”

I feel much happier knowing I can stay in shape while eating these delicious, healthy snacks. Now, go and get that beach body ready!

These are U.S. Pulses, a protein source also full of fiber. When they are not in the same frame with beer, they look much healthier.

Some of the U.S. Pulses and wholegrain ready-to-eat snacks I was introduced to in a January 2018 workshop I attended in Thailand. Good to eat on their own or with salad to add a crunchy zing!
