Healthy Snack Ideas
Are you a snacker? Me too! 👍 But are you making the best choices for your snacks? A few things to keep in mind:
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.
Make sure your snack provides the nutrients you need like protein (especially for those of us in midlife! 🙋♀️), 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:
🔹 1 piece of fruit 🍎🍌 with 1 tbsp nut butter
🔹 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese with 1/2 cup sliced fruit or berries 🍓🫐 and 1 tbsp slivered almonds
🔹 2 oz of tuna with 1 tbsp mashed avocado 🥑 and 1 oz of whole grain crackers or 1/2 whole grain pita
🔹 4 oz of carrot 🥕, celery or red pepper slices , 2 tbsp hummus and 1 oz while grain crackers or 1/2 whole grain pita
🔹 string cheese with sliced fruit 🍎 and 1 tbsp unsalted nuts or nut butter
🔹 2 hard boiled eggs
