Healthy Snack Ideas


Are you a snacker? Me too! πŸ‘ But are you making the best choices for your snacks? A few things to keep in mind:


Calories:

If you are in the 1,500-1,800 calorie a day range and eat 3 meals a day, a snack should range between 150-200 calories.


Macros:

Make sure your snack provides the nutrients you need like protein (especially for those of us in midlife! πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ), healthy fat, and high fiber carbohydrates.


Microwave edamame has been one of my favorites lately, but here are a few other suggestions to help keep you on track:


πŸ”Ή 1 piece of fruit 🍎🍌 with 1 tbsp nut butter

πŸ”Ή 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese with 1/2 cup sliced fruit or berries πŸ“πŸ« and 1 tbsp slivered almonds

πŸ”Ή 2 oz of tuna with 1 tbsp mashed avocado πŸ₯‘ and 1 oz of whole grain crackers or 1/2 whole grain pita

πŸ”Ή 4 oz of carrot πŸ₯•, celery or red pepper slices , 2 tbsp hummus and 1 oz while grain crackers or 1/2 whole grain pita

πŸ”Ή string cheese with sliced fruit 🍎 and 1 tbsp unsalted nuts or nut butter

πŸ”Ή 2 hard boiled eggs


What’s your go to snack?
