Added by on March 19, 2013

Cressida Elias is pleased to announce the immediate availability of her latest healthy snacks cookbook, The Ultimate Healthy Snacks List, available on Amazon Kindle or in paperback.

“You know the feeling – you’re between meals yet find yourself hungry. Instead of reaching for a bag of chips, or some other unhealthy snack, you might be surprised about all of the healthy and easy to make snacks are available. My book offers a healthy snacks list that offers snacks in a broad range of categories, all of which are every easy to prepare – I even include a number of no-prep snacks,” said Elias, books author.

The book is about 200 pages long and includes a broad range of snacks, categorized by type – such as vegetable snacks, smoothie snacks, and gluten free snacks. According to Elias, some studies say up to 33% of the adult population is either allergic or has a sensitivity to gluten. The book includes gluten-free alternatives whenever possible to assist those that have Celiac Disease.

Busy parents are often looking for ways to involve their children in preparing meals and snacks, yet are often stuck when coming up with ideas for snacks for kids which they can prepare on their own. The Ultimate Healthy Snacks List has many snack recipes that are easy enough for children of various ages to make. Supervising childrenĀ is always recommended when they are in the kitchen.

A reviewer said, “I found a wealth of healthy snacks recipes in this book that I found to be easy to recreate, and that did not require a bunch of expensive health food store ingredients. The weight loss snack section is especially helpful.”

“The Ultimate Healthy Snacks List is available on Kindle books, which means you can have the book right in the kitchen with you on your Kindle, iPad – with the Kindle app, or other tablet or smart phone since you probably carry at least one of those devices around. You can also browse through the snacks for snack ideas to pickup when you’re out shopping, so you don’t have to make a special trip or go out of your way,” added Elias.

Snacks are a great way to improve your diet. Studies have found that snacks high in protein slow down the absorption of carbohydrates and other sugars. Sugars get used up quickly and contribute to the feeling of hunger; proteins keep your blood sugar constant and help people feel full for longer – all of which contributes to a better diet and healthier lifestyle.

“Snacking is on the rise. A recent study found that about 83% of teens snacked throughout the day, and up to 90% of adults reported that they snack at least once per day. Healthy snacking is about substituting, not adding. Making healthy snack choices is easy – check my book for great ideas,” added Elias.
