Bangalore: People who soak their salad in fat-free dressing or eat granola bars by the dozens are in for a shock! None of these snacks are doing you any good. We give you some good news though, we are here to bust a few snacking myths and help you substitute them with truly healthy choices. Granola:Super gratifying and a health booster, Granola in small quantities provides numerous health benefits as its high in fiber and unsaturated fats which help control cholesterol. But if eaten in large quantities, this iconic hippie-friendly snack is not as nourishing any longer. Look for granola that is low in sugar content or make your own at home and remember, a 1/2 cup serving averages about 200-250 calories.
