Never Go Hungry Again with These Easy, Healthy, Yummy Snacks!


Hunger happens, and often in between meals.


It is OKAY to eat a snack!


It’s always better to eat than to deprive yourself, especially if what you’re choosing contains fiber, lean protein, healthy fat, and a good dose of vitamins and minerals.


How do these snacks sound to you?
  • 1 banana or apple with 2 tablespoons nut or seed butter

  • 1 hard-boiled egg sprinkled with your favorite spices or seasoning; pair with veggies, a piece of fruit, yogurt, or milk

  • ⅓ cup hummus with fresh veggie sticks

  • ½ sandwich: 1-2 oz meat, tuna fish or hard-boiled eggs with lettuce and veggies (i.e. tomato, cucumber or peppers)

  • ½ PB&F: That's Peanut Butter and Fruit! Swap out high-sugar jelly for sliced bananas, strawberries, or grapes.

  • 1 oz cheese (i.e. 1 cheese stick) with fresh veggie sticks or fruit and whole grain crackers

  • 4-6 oz yogurt with fruit. Top with pepitas for a little extra fiber, protein, healthy fat and crunch!


Consider these additional tips when choosing a snack:
  • Think of snacks as mini meals. Why can't leftover dinner can't be enjoyed as a snack?

  • Always include fiber, lean protein, and healthy fats with each snack. A good snack size can consist of 15-30 grams of carbohydrate, 10-15 grams protein, and 8-15 grams of fat.

  • Non-starchy vegetables and fruits have lots of vitamins and minerals, making them excellent snack foods!

  • Prepare a small batch of hard-boiled eggs so you can grab-and-go.

  • Have fresh cut vegetables and fruit ready to grab from the fridge. Store up to two days.

  • For busier days, you can find fresh veggie sticks or fruit at grocery and convenience stores.

  • Stock your vehicle or bag with your favorite whole food bars (i.e. protein bars, granola bars, etc). Emergencies happen; it’s nice to be prepared!
