Nothing is worse than getting hungry in the middle of the busy day. Temptations are high, and its so so easy to grab an unhealthy and ultimately unsatisfying pastry.
This is a list of my favorite healthy snacks to take on the go to deal with all that afternoon hunger. And mid-morning hunger. I get hungry a lot. Trust me, these healthy snacks will boost your energy and keep you feeling full and satisfied.
Edamame is high in protein and fiber, and that makes it the perfect healthy snack. At about 80 calories per cup (in the pod), these are also pretty guilt free. Bonus for using popcorn seasoning from The Spice House. My favorites are the Vulcan’s Fire Salt and Cheddar Cheese Powder.
2. Chia Seed Pudding
Chia seed pudding is all the rage. Check out some of my favorite Chia Seed Pudding Recipes. Chia seeds are an amazing source of protein, fiber and other nutrients. This snack is super easy to take on the go, and will keep you satisfied and happy. It also doesn’t hurt that these little puddings totally taste like dessert.
4. Nut Butter and Anything
Nothing could be more low carb than turkey jerky. Look for a healthy option that is low in fats and sodium. My favorite is Think Jerky. Find out why here.
6. Low Fat Cottage Cheese
7. Fresh Mozzarella and Low Fat Salami
8. No Bake Energy Bites
These No Bake Energy Bites taste like cookies, but unlike cookies they wont give you a massive sugar crash. Check out my recipe here.
9. Olives and Almonds
Olives are filled with healthy fats and antioxidants, and almonds are a great source of plant based protein. Mix these two together for a sophisticated and healthy snack option!
10. Veggies and Hummus
Chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans) are a healthy source of plant based protein, and when they are blended into hummus they transform into an easy and healthy snack to take on the go! Bonus points for making your own hummus! Making homemade hummus is very easy to do, and it tastes so much better than the stuff you get from the store. Check out my favorite hummus recipe here.
