Healthy Snack Ideas

It’s springtime turning into summertime, and more than ever we’re all on the go, go, going, going, gone!  The more time I put into prepping/planning ahead, the better I eat that day.  The more on-the-fly I am with food, the worse my choices are.   When we eat small meals or frequent snacks it keeps our metabolism roaring all day long.  And when we keep snacks high protein, they will help keep us fuller longer and help build/repair our muscles faster.  Here are some of my favorite ideas for healthy foods on the go:

  • Container of 1 sliced apple w/ 2T of peanut butter = 280 calories, 15g protein
  • Container of 1 diced grapefruit, 1/2 diced avocado, & 1 container no-sugar-added mandarin oranges = 304 calories, 5g protein
  • 1 banana w/ 1 mini macadamia white chocolate Luna bar = 170 calories, 5g protein
  • Container of 1 cup Fage 0%Greek yogurt, 1 100 calorie pouch Emerald walnuts & almonds mix, & 1 container no-sugar-added diced peaches = 255 calories, 26g protein
  • Bobo’s Oat Bars, coconut flavor = 360 calories, 6g protein
  • Blue Diamond Almonds- Bold Lime ‘n Chili flavor = 260 calories, 8g protein
  • Container of 1 cup fresh berries = 200-250 calories
  • Baggie of 7 Reduced-Fat Triscuits w/ Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light cheese round = 170 calories, 9g protein
  • 1 Thomas Better Start 100 Calorie High Fiber English Muffin toasted w/ 2 T Maranatha almond butter, sprinkle of cinnamon = 280 calories, 11g protein
  • 2 Nutrigrain low-fat whole wheat waffles = 140 calories, 5g protein
