Healthy Snack Alternatives

Healthy Snack Options

Supplement your New Vision Nutrition meals with healthy snacks

In addition to our New Vision Nutrition meal plans, we do recommend adding 2-3 healthy snack options each day.  

Why do we recommend to eat more meals?
Many of us are taught from an early age that we should eat three large meals each day to maintain a healthy diet.  There are many new studies out there that state eating three large meals a day is not the best way to lose weight!  Eating the same calories spread out over smaller meals four to six times during the day is supposed to raise the body's thermic effect, resulting in 10% more calories being burned, according to Leslie Bonci, R.D., director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Here are a few of our favorite products that would be a great supplement to your healthy meal plans.  If you have any questions regarding the products , please reach out to us directly at for more information. 

Almonds are a high fat food that is good for your health.  That is not an oxymoron! Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the same type of fats that have been proven to reduce the risk of heart disease.  In addition to including healthy fats, almonds are also high in Vitamin E, magnesium and potassium! Magnesium is great to improve the flow of blood, while potassium is essential to maintain healthy blood pressure and heart function.

Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard Protein Powder
Many of our clients ask us which protein is the best to use. Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard 100% Whey uses pure Whey Protein Isolates as the primary ingredient.

Green Coffee Bean Extract 
We first saw this on the Dr. Oz show and decided to give it a try.  It is an amazing product, it gives you a boost of energy in the morning and is healthier than a cup of coffee. The green coffee bean extract helps with weight loss , but the most useful part is the energy boost to get me through my day and my workout.
