It can be tempting to grab a bag of Cheetos to satisfy that annoying stomach growl; believe me, I've been there. Once in a while, it is okay to treat yourself and have some unhealthy craving foods. When that becomes an all-the-time habit, though, is when your body won't react well or you won't feel as good as you should. According to Help Guide, eating right has been proven to increase immunity, fight illness-causing toxins, keep weight in check, and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type-2 diabetes, bone loss, and cancer.

Depending on the flavor of granola bar you choose to eat, they can typically be a very good source of fiber and protein. More sugary flavors would include carbs, calories, and unwanted sugars.

Oats are a gluten-free whole grain. They are a great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants, and can reduce your chances of heart disease, according to Health Line.
