Let’s peep into using these ingredients to create inexpensive and impressive snacks. The good news is that snacks are not always unhealthy. You just need to learn the art of substitution and cook wisely and deliciously using healthy ingredients available in nature bountifully.

1. Steamed Snacks for Cancer Patients

Steaming, since ages, has been considered a healthier method of cooking. It involves use of less oil thus avoiding any unnecessary extra fat. Remember you need some fat in your diet. Do not go completely oil-free. Fats are needed to lubricate your joints.

2. Non-fried Snacks for Cancer Patients

Deep-fried snacks are by far the most famous snacks people reach out for, as they are considered the most palatable by most of us. But deep-frying calls for addition of excess fat, which isn’t really required.

Learn to add taste by way of fresh herbs and basic spices instead of oodles of oil for frying. Sprouts Tikki, which has chopped coriander and mint for taste, is a classic example to prove this.
