Fresh fruit juice is so refreshing and energizing. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber, it is my first go-to healthy snack.
You can buy it from a local juicer or order it online. You can also prepare it at home using different fruits or veggies. Make sure you drink it right after you make it. You can order juices or store fresh cold-pressed juice to take to work or school.

Fruits that have low to medium glycemic index make a great snack. For example, a small fruit bowl containing apple, muskmelon, and watermelon. The combination looks good, is nutritious, and tastes amazing. You can also dress your fruit bowl with a dash of lime juice and sprinkle a bit of pink Himalayan salt, black pepper, and chaat masala on it. YUM!
