Here are some healthy snack ideas!

 

Try loading a few celery sticks with 1-2 tablespoons of any nut butter (almond, cashew, walnut).

Edamame makes a great high-protein snack (one cup of beans yields 17g of protein!). Buy them fresh and steam for about 6 minutes, or use the pre-cooked frozen variety and briefly microwave to defrost (about 2 minutes).  Great for on the go!

1 medium apple, sliced, with 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter.

Hummus Dippers: Put 2 tablespoons of your favorite hummus in the bottom of the container, stick a handful of vegetable sticks (carrots, celery, and snow peas are a great mix) vertically in the hummus, screw on the top, and throw in a purse or gym bag for an easy, on-the-go, super-healthy snack.

Hard-Boiled Eggs: Inexpensive and loaded with nutrients, eggs are one of the best ways to get a healthy dose of protein. Try hard boiling and pre-peeling a dozen at the start of the week and throw one in a small Tupperware container each day for an easy on-the-go snack.

On the go? Grab a handful of almonds (10 or so) and enjoy alongside 1 cup of grapes.

Toast one slice of Ezikiel bread and top with 2 scrambled egg whites. Sprinkle with a dash of pepper and paprika.

Top a rice cake (unsalted brown variety is best) with 1-2 Tbsp of nut butter

Shake up 1 scoop of Protein powder with 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk.

Top ½ cup low-fat or nonfat cottage cheese with ½ cup of your favorite fresh fruit

Mix 1 can of low-sodium tuna with 2 tablespoons of salsa. Serve by itself or use it as a dip with celery!

Top ½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt with a handful of fruit (fresh or frozen) and a small drizzle of honey (or stevia to taste). Add 2 tablespoons of toasted oats for a protein-packed crunch!

Craving something sweet? Try a baked apple! Core a tennis-ball sized apple, dust with cinnamon, and bake at 350 for 20 minutes (or until tender but not mushy).

1 orange and 1 low-fat string cheese

Eggs aren't just for breakfast! Try 2 whole eggs scrambled with a handful of chopped onion, spinach, and bell peppers.

Jicama is a root veggie that touts 6 grams of fiber per cup. Peel and slice up 1 ½ cups, and dip into a mixture of 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of mustard, and 1 teaspoon of honey.

Top ¼ cup nonfat yogurt with ½ cup old-fashioned oats and ½ cup fresh strawberries.

Yes, you can have your ice cream and stay on track! Simply peel a few bananas, stick them in the freezer, and let them hang out for a few hours, or until solid. Put the frozen bananas in the bowl of a food processor, and process until smooth. Finally, add in your choice of mix-ins like peanut butter or fresh strawberries. One serving = 1 banana.

One of my favs-a bowl of baby carrots with 2 tablespoons of hummus.

Craving something crunchy? Give Kale Chips a try! Preheat oven to 375. Rinse and dry 1 large bunch of kale, then remove the stems and tough center ribs. Rip the kale into large pieces, toss with a little olive oil, then sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a large parchment lined baking sheet (careful not to overlap). Bake until crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes, checking frequently (they can burn easily!).

2 slices deli turkey rolled with 2 Tbsp hummus, yum!

Slice up a cucumber & some cherry tomatoes – drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and top with fresh cracked pepper

Mash ¼ of an avocado on a rice cake and top with salsa for a zesty treat!

Combine ½ of a scoop of protein powder with ½ cup of nonfat greek yogurt – it's packed with protein and tastes delicious!

Homemade protein balls: 2/3 cup nut butter, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1 scoop protein powder, ¼ cup oats.  Mix and roll into small balls, throw in the fridge, grab a couple for an easy on the go snack that is packed with protein and healthy fat.
