Quick and Healthy Snacks

I am a girl who loves to snack. I often need to have something to munch on in between every meal in order to feel full all day. As you can imagine, this can add a lot of extra calories into my diet.

Over the years, I have developed a couple go-to snacks that curb my hunger but don’t necessarily kill my diet. All of these things are easy to keep on hand year round and can be made in a hurry. Here are my no fail healthy snacks.

-Apple slices dipped in 1 tablespoon of almond butter
-2 slices of deli turkey with a hand full of grapes
-One inch cube of hard cheese and 5 dried apricot halves
-Whole wheat crackers with low fat cream cheese sprinkled with dried cranberries
-Raw almonds mixed with dried fruit
-one whole grain toaster waffle spread with 1 tablespoon of nutella
-3 cups of air popped popcorn sprinkled with dark chocolate shavings

If you are feeling hungry throughout the day, reach for these healthy options instead of prepackaged 100 calorie packs or vending machine goodies and I promise you will have more energy and maybe even a smaller waistline!

Happy snacking!
