Here are some healthy snack ideas :) If you can, go for natural organic foods.
~ Veggies & hummus - raw carrot sticks, cucumber slices or sticks, cherry tomatoes sliced, lightly steamed broccoli, slices of bell pepper, etc.
~ Greek yogurt or regular yogurt (nonfat)
~ Fruit/berries + greek or regular yogurt
~ Trail mix: nuts, seeds, dried fruit like cherries, blueberries or cranberries, dark chocolate bits or chips
~ Whole grain crackers with cheese or hummus
~ Whole grain crackers with cheese & grapes
~ Nuts, seeds
~ Fat free all natural popcorn, natural sweet potato chips, pita chips with hummus, etc.
~ Healthy cereal (such as Kashi or Nature's Path Organic; high fiber not to high in sugar)
~ Small whole grain tortilla with almond or peanut butter & natural jam or sliced banana
~ Small whole wheat pita with hummus, veggies
~ Plain greek yogurt with berries/fruit - drizzle of honey, agave, natural jam for sweetness
~ Kashi granola bar, Kind fruit & nut bar, Lara bar - healthy snack bars
~ Whole grain waffle with toppings like light cream cheese, natural jam, nut butter, honey, cinnamon, berries/fruit, nonfat yogurt/greek yogurt
~ Cottage cheese + fruit/berries - for example pineapple chunks or any kind of berry
~ Fruit salad; try different combinations like:
- Strawberries, kiwi
- Watermelon, grapes, strawberries
- Banana, mango, pineapple
- Watermelon, honeydew melon, pineapple
- Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries
- Apple or pear, strawberries
~ Almonds & dried apricots
I hope this helps :)
