Healthy Snack Ideas


Are you a snacker? Me too! ๐Ÿ‘ 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! ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ), 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:


๐Ÿ”น 1 piece of fruit ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŒ with 1 tbsp nut butter

๐Ÿ”น 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese with 1/2 cup sliced fruit or berries ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿซ and 1 tbsp slivered almonds

๐Ÿ”น 2 oz of tuna with 1 tbsp mashed avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘ and 1 oz of whole grain crackers or 1/2 whole grain pita

๐Ÿ”น 4 oz of carrot ๐Ÿฅ•, celery or red pepper slices , 2 tbsp hummus and 1 oz while grain crackers or 1/2 whole grain pita

๐Ÿ”น string cheese with sliced fruit ๐ŸŽ and 1 tbsp unsalted nuts or nut butter

๐Ÿ”น 2 hard boiled eggs
