If you need your snack to have real staying power, go for a combo of good protein and a little bit of fat. A homemade egg salad is a great choice. Chop up one whole egg and one egg white, then mix with a tablespoon of reduced-fat mayonnaise. The high-quality protein in the eggs will fuel your body for hours, while the fat helps slow digestion, so you'll feel full and energized longer.
Kale chips pretty much keep my chip cravings at bay so the next time you’re craving something crispy and salty, try a batch of kale chips as a healthy alternative to store-bought potato chips. Sweet potato chips and beet chips are also a favourite of mine and make a great snack for movie nights. Try these kale chips or sweet potato chips. Beets work well for this too.
Your meal plan will tell you how many servings of carbohydrates, protein or fats you should have for your snack. The best meal plan snacks usually combine lean proteins or healthy fats with 15 to 30 grams of high-fiber carbohydrates such as fruit, vegetables, and whole grains. This combination of nutrients slows digestion and causes a more gradual rise and fall in blood sugar.
Hmmm – I suddenly feel like snacking! I just can’t decide what to make first :) I’m recently enamoured with your chia puddings and blueberries are one of my favorite foods so seems like a logical place to start. I also wanted to share that I recently took the plunge and made a green monster – I was very sceptical but it turned out to be delicious! Who knew? I’ve tried the blueberry banana one with both spinach and kale and liked them both. Also added wheatgrass powder which gives it a nutty, herby flavor that I like. I actually found myself looking forward to one for an afternoon snack today!

Why overpay for a gourmet Bistro Box, when you can make one at home, for less and pack it with better ingredients! The best part about DIY? You can put whatever you want in it. We gave you some of our favorite toppings, but feel free to swap toast for crackers, cheddar for mozzarella, nut butter for hummus, maybe even add in some turkey slices — you get the point, pair up and enjoy.
If you’re craving chips and dip but don’t want to compromise your healthy diet, reach of some buckwheat crackers with herby edamame dip instead. Both buckwheat groats and edamame are packed with protein, making them an ideal option to help ward off hunger. Buckwheat groats also filled with nutrients like zinc, copper, manganese, and magnesium. Plus this dip is so creamy and flavorful, you’ll likely forget that it’s actually healthy.
Packed with fiber, water, and antioxidants, fruits and vegetables are great choices for diet-friendly snacking. But the standard banana or carrots and ranch dip can get old quick. Instead, try a sliced apple with a lowfat cheese wedge, like Laughing Cow Light. "Having a little extra fat is good in a snack because it sustains you longer," says McLachlan.
On a Low Carbohydrate Diet, traditional snack foods like chips, pretzels, and popcorn are a no-go. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a tremendous selection of delicious and healthy Low Carb snacks to choose from.  We’ve put together the most comprehensive list on the Internet of Low Carb diet snack ideas, including nutritional information about calories and net carbohydrates.  Pro Tip: You can even sort the list by number of calories, number of grams of net carbohydrates, or even alphabetically.  From sweet to savory, and everything in between, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect Low Carb snack below!
Low-Carb Tortilla and Cheese – Low-carb tortillas can truly be a life-saver on the ketogenic diet, and there’s almost no quicker hot snack than a cheese roll-up.  Throw your favorite cheese in, toss some spices on (we love pepper jack cheese and a little bit of cayenne pepper to spice things up), microwave it until melted, and enjoy.  Mama Lupe’s tortillas are near indistinguishable from normal tortillas, as are the Low-Carb tortillas from Mission.  Most supermarkets seem to carry a low-carb option or two in their tortilla department nowadays, so add it to your grocery list.

Beef Pemmican — Pemmican is a delicious paste of dried and pounded meat mixed with melted fat and other ingredients, originally made by North American Indians and later adapted by Arctic explorers. It is an undeniably delicious keto snack if you want something that is filling with hearty, beefy flavors. We recommend getting your pemmican from U.S. Wellness Meats. Opt for the Honey & Cherry-Free Beef Pemmican.

Raise your hand if you’re a snackaholic!  I’m guessing I’m not the only one with my hand in the air right now 🙂  I’m a firm believer that snacks are vital to our diets and keep us going between meals.  They’re great for giving us energy, curbing our sweet tooth and preventing us from getting hangry throughout the day.  Today we’re rounding up 16 of our favorite healthy snack recipes for you to enjoy!
What’s easier than to grab a quick snack on the go? Nowadays, with our busy lives, we sometimes need a little something in between meals, a little snack to give you a boost, or just to make that hungry feeling go away, or perhaps you just have a craving. I get plenty of those, I’m a real nut freak. I could eat nuts every day (and I do most of the time, lol)
What it comes down to is eating when you’re hungry. Don’t let yourself get ravenous which can lead to unhealthy choices and overeating. If you know you are going to be out and about all day, toss an apple, banana and a bag of mixed nuts and dried fruits in your bag. That way you’ll always have something healthy to reach for when hunger hits. If you’re completely new to plant-based eating, head over and read my post with tips for plant-based beginners.

Raw Coconut Butter — This is made from blended coconut meat, and provides us with a delicious way to get plenty of coconut fat without missing out on our favorite coconut flavors. Make sure the coconut butter you find has no added sugar — and, most importantly, don’t overdo it. Coconut butter is packed with calories, which can slow your weight loss.

Um… since when were fruit gummies NOT associated with NYE?? Haha. I must say, I do so appreciate the rigorous research you put into the perfect New Year’s recipe for us! 🙂 I like to think that the sugar coating resembles the sparkle of champagne. Nice random fact! Why am I not surprised that you knew of your fruit-sweetened calling before you could practically walk? 🙂 And good for your for sticking it to autocorrect until it just gave up. If “dummy” is saying something, then what is “mummy” telling you?? That’s a thinker, folks! Two flavors, one for each agar. I can get on board with that! Alright, before I forget my train of thought, I just wanted to say… these photos are INSANE. And by insane, of course, I mean AWESOME. These little fruit snacks came out so beautifully. Send me a batch or two? 🙂 xoxo
Slabbing a piece of fiber rich Ezekiel toast, with protein-packed Greek yogurt makes this snack of the day so much better. We like to add high-fiber berries, to take the toasts nutrition to the next level. Did you know? 1 cup of raspberries contains a whopping 8 grams of fiber. That combined with antioxidant rich blueberries, and blood-sugar stabilizing chia seeds this epic combo is sure to keep those afternoon tummy rumbles at ease.
This makes a great snack or even healthy dessert. Try adding a slice of banana and sprinkling it with cinnamon and cacao for a decadent, raw vegan snack. I often eat this for dessert to satisfy sweet tooth. Almond butter, tahini, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or any other nut or seed butter are also delicious options! If you want to get really fancy, how about some Peanut Butter Mousse Stuffed Dates?
If eating a popsicle at breakfast seems out of the ordinary, know that this one hides several healthy breakfast ingredients: yogurt, fruit, and granola. Make a batch on the weekend, and pop one out each day for a tasty healthy snack to eat as you’re getting dressed. Make a “cup” at the base of the pop with a piece of aluminum foil large enough to catch up wayward drips.
This is one of my favourite quick snacks, that is if you bake the acorn squash ahead of time. I like to include one or two baked acorn squash in my weekly food prep so they’re ready for snacks and meals during the week. My favourite fillings are peanut butter, yogurt and granola but you can also fill them with savoury ingredients like hummus, guacamole, quinoa, black beans, any mixture of those or anything else you can think of.
This colorful creation makes for a festive appetizer or a delicious bite-sized snack. Thanks to the zucchini base, they're loaded with vitamin A, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, calcium, and protein, just to name a few of its many nutrients. Plus the sun-dried tomato adds a dose of vitamin, iron, and antioxidants. While the goat cheese adds a boost of protein to keep you feeling full and satisfied longer.
Eating a snack between meals helps curb your hunger so that you don't inhale your dinner when you finally sit down to eat a meal. Snacking can also help you get in all the nutrients you need. On the flip side, grazing all day-particularly on foods with little nutritional value-may result in eating too much. It's a great idea to shop for snacks at the grocery store and pack them for work so you are prepared when hunger strikes. Many of these are also great on-the-go snack options.
