Healthy organic snacks could be considered an oxymoron by some. Are you up early several mornings a week to get your work out in before heading to your job? Do you get off the train one station before your stop to achieve your minimum steps in each day? Do you forgo the tonkatsu (pork cutlet) at lunchtime in favor of a healthy salad? Hopefully the answer to one or more of these questions is yes a good majority of the time. If your answers are mostly on the positive side then you are certainly making a conscious effort to take care of your health. Kudos to you!
With all this dedication to staying fit most of us can benefit from a slight digression from time to time. When you crave a snack that is not part of your daily menu, its good to know that there are reasonably healthy organic snacks you can indulge in and not derail your efforts. Here at HealthyTOKYO we’ve curated a growing selection of treats you don’t have to feel too guilty about consuming.
