Below are a list of quick and easy snack ideas I reach for when I am needing a little extra something. These snacks are low in added sugar and high in an array of nutrients, which will help keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Snacks can be an important part of a healthy lifestyle. When choosing healthy snacks that are low in added sugar and high in nutrients, snacks can provide a good source of energy to get you through the day.
The key to picking a healthy snack is based on the nutritional profile. Is the snack a good source of protein, healthy fats and fiber, but low in added sugars, sodium and calories? If you are purchasing a packaged snack, is the ingredient list short with ingredients you can easily read? Listed below are two sections for snacks you can prepare at home or purchase.
My favorite snack lately has been crunchy apple nachos. There is just something so satisfying about biting into crisp apples, crunchy walnuts, and sweet chocolate chips.
I also love putting a bowl of fruit together and drizzling peanut butter, pecans, and pepitas on top. The toppings add a good source of protein and healthy fats to this snack. Just be mindful with portions as calories can add up quickly.
The summertime watermelon goat cheese basil salad is honestly one of my favorite recipes. I highly encourage you to give it a try!
Did you know popcorn is technically considered a whole grain? That’s what makes stovetop popcorn a great snack. If you drizzle a bit of ghee or coconut oil on top, this popcorn tastes better than movie theater popcorn!
I make extra servings of tangy mango avocado salsa and guacamole to ensure I have leftovers to last throughout the week. Both dips pair nicely with Siete’s lime tortilla chips. As a side note, these two appetizers also go great for any taco Tuesday 🌮
Another quick grab and go snack I tend to have premade for those hectic weeks are hard boiled eggs, as they provide a good source of protein and healthy fats to satisfy hunger. Learn how to make the perfect hard boiled egg here.
My go-to snacks I tend to purchase at the store include hummus and veggies, cucumber with tajin seasoning, mixed nuts, fruit bars, beef sticks, and bone broth.
