I am such a snacker. I especially have a weakness for salty foods! I try to go towards easy healthy snacks because I know I will snack so why not make them healthy?
A few of my favorite easy healthy snacks are:
Black Bean Hummus and Veggies/Flax Chips: I may have an addiction to hummus. I will legit eat an entire container if you let me and that’s not very healthy. But if I portion it (the way you should) and plate it with some veggies and flax chips it’s soooo good. Plus bonus, use the flax chips and hummus and light cheese for healthy nachos!
Popcorn: We love Smart Pop kettle corn. It is always in our house and they come in 100 calorie packs which makes it super easy. One of our favorite things is sharing a bowl of popcorn.
Pretzels with Baby bell light cheese: This is a go to recently. I get 365 Pretzels from Whole Foods and Baby Bell light cheese and eat them together.
Horizon String Cheese: It’s amazing and another thing we always have in our house. Clearly I am 5 years old.
Greek Yogurt with Berries/Granola: I am a huge Greek yogurt lover. I put it in my smoothies and love it for snacks with granola and berries. Specifically blueberries. Yum. Bonus blueberries are amazing for you.
Green Smoothies: This is a daily must have. Even if it’s not a snack, it’s either part of my lunch or a pre-dinner “appetizer.” I always have one. This May will be six years since I started drinking daily green smoothies and I haven’t stopped. Even when traveling I try to find a way to make them happen and usually can. Most hotels have the ingredients. In mine currently I use Spinach or Kale, Pineapple, Blueberries, Strawberries, Apple, Truvia, Greek Yogurt, 2-3 ice cubes, and a bit of water. Blend it up in the Vitamix (or your blender of choice). This yields two servings which is perfect for Andrew and myself. Plus you know you are getting your fruits and veggies in.
What are your easy healthy snacks that you love?
Love this post 🙂 I’m a hummus and greek yogurt addict as well, would be just fine eating only those most of the time!
Popcorn is seriously my favorite snack! It’s light and airy and perfect for on the go!
These are good ideas. Have you had the Trader Joe’s Spicy Black Bean Dip? If you like black bean hummus you’ll LOVE this. I can go through one jar in a day (though it’s probably not recommended in the serving size…
I will grab a hunk of cheese as a snack-I always have cheese in the house and Ritz crackers (low salt or low fat if I can find them). Other then that my snacking tends to be very unhealthy unless I can convince myself to eat those sliced green, red and yellow peppers that sit in my fridge!
I need to add a few of these to my go-to snack list! I’m a huge snacker as well and I like salty and sweet; especially together! Currently, my go-to snack is peanut butter and ritz crackers….yum!!!
I’m actually drinking a smoothie as I type this!
Another snack I love is cucumbers with a little sour cream and whole grain crackers. Add a little pink salt and its SO GOOD!
We all love string cheese here! We also love popcorn, but admittedly since we like a lot of butter it isn’t exactly the healthiest.
Love this! So timely, as my husband was just talking about having more healthy snack options in the house!
When it comes to snacks, I pretty much just grab some nuts or fresh fruit. Once in awhile I take a bar snack that is healthy with no added sugars.
Great list. I recently just tried hummus and I can’t stand it! But I’m all about avocados and black bean chips (:
I told my coworker i need her to be my nutritionist, but not until after I finish my box of thin mints. Chips & Salsa is my go-to snack. It’s healthy because there are veggies, right?
yogurt with berries and hummus are my two fav snacks…and popcorn too esp when im binge watching something on tv. i recently made/share stovetop popcorn and it seems to be everyones fav 🙂
I am literally obsessed with greek yogurt! So yummy and healthy!
Apple slices and a piece of cheddar cheese. Might sound like a weird combo but I really love it!
I live for green smoothies! They make for a perfect mid-afternoon boost.
It is so important that all of the food we eat will nourish us. I love these snack choices. I like salads and local fruits to the Island I’m living on. Keep up the great work and live unstoppable!
All of these are go tos for me! Especially popcorn 🙂
This is such a great list! I love smoothies – any combination and any time of the day! 🙂
I LOVE popcorn! I’m also trying to get into smoothies lately but almost all recipes don’t give specific amounts for each item, and I’m too Type A to just throw some things in and hope for the best!
Lara Bars are my on the go healthy snacks, love them!
I’m not the hugest fan of salty snacks, I have a major sweet tooth! My favorite smoothie I love to make is frozen strawberries, mangoes, peaches and pineapple, mixed with coconut almond milk. It’s so amazing, and sweet enough for me to stay away from massive amounts of chocolate!
I like apples and peanut butter, avocado on toast, or guacamole! My favorite from this list is popcorn! I could eat it all day, every day!
Yes! We love hummus, pistachios, Laughing Cow cheese, yogurt, kale chips and popcorn!
I am sitting here eating roasted pine nut hummus with tortilla chips right now. I love hummus!
I like pretty much everything you listed, except greek yogurt. I make myself eat it occasionally, but I really don’t like it.
These are all great ideas. lately I am loving Apples with Justins almond butter. yuummmy!
I love kale chips as a healthy snack. Lately my kids have been hooked on zucchini noodles as well 🙂
Popcorn, that’s generally my go to! But yogurt and granola is a second favorite!!
I love making yogurt parfaits. Yum! Popcorn is a good one too, but I stove pop mine since its “better” for you. I love making trail mixes with nuts and dried fruits too!
I’m currently obsessed with black bean hummus on everything! I love it with a rolled up tortilla! This is a great list of healthy snacks, thank you for sharing!
Great ideas. I love snacking on popcorn. It feels like a real treat.
I love all of these snack ideas! I am defiantly a late night popcorn eater, but some of my other go-to healthy snacks are veggies and sweet potato chips. YUM
Yay for popcorn! Love all of these suggestions. 🙂
We LOVE popcorn too! it’s literally the best snack!
I just discovered the 100 calorie bags of Smart Pop and had to do a mid-week refill before my work trip. We pretty much eat the same snacks 🙂 I also love apple slices with peanut butter.
Great list of snacks! Lately I’ve been loving edamame with sea salt. I seem to go in phases, other days I love a hard boiled egg with pepper.
This is the best post- so needed during this season! I don’t think I’ll ever stop snacking, but I could certainly snack better.
Great snacks! I am constantly snacking on something. My favorite treats are Greek yogurt with fruit or popcorn!
My favorite snack is veggies with hummus!
Honestly. I’m still trying to eat healthy snacks like this, so glad you shared this one.
I love popcorn and pretzels! I also love apples and peanut butter.
I love Baby Bell light cheese, but so far I’ve always used it on triscuits. I’m going to try it your way. Also, that black bean hummus is happening.
I really love dry nuts. I know that they are good for me and high in protein so I snack on them whenever I can.
All the above are on my snacks list, though hummus + veggie is my favourite
Some of these are my favorite too! I love babybell cheese and reduced fat wheat thins. I make my daughter and myself a smoothie every afternoon. I need to get better at adding kale or spinach though. I usually just do fruit and yogurt.
Yes, popcorn is one of our favorite “healthy” snacks, so nice for when you’re craving something salty.
I love a bright green smoothie in the morning! Another great snack I recently discovered and even got my teen boy to consume (big mistake) is Beanitos chips. The white bean are my fav — and dredged in some spicy hummus= AMAZING! 🙂
Green smoothies are the best! I also have fruit on hand at work in case I get hungry and need a snack. I have never liked apples (except for the three months I spent in Senegal…there was a fruit vendor who had the best green apples I have ever eaten), but this year I’ve kind of fallen in love with them and have been eating an apple a day.
These are all such tasty options! I’ve been on the green smoothie train for awhile now – never looking back!
Hummus, popcorn and Babybell are my favorite snacks too! Love this, I’m trying to eat healthier lately – I’m dying to try making a green smoothie!
Popcorn is totally my go to snack during the afternoons at my desk.
Ohh thank you for sharing this. I will have to try out the black bean hummus! I love green smoothies as it’s an easy way to get my greens in at the start of my day. I usually use kale/spinach, greek yogurt, frozen pineapples and mangos, a half of a banana, and some vanilla protein powder or chia seeds. One of my faves!
I love popcorn and chips & salsa! I also love fresh fruit.
I’m on a health kick right now and snacking is my weakness. I’m definitely going to have to start eating these! That humus sounds so good!
I love sea salt almonds. Yum!!!
Great list. Greek yoghurt and berries with granola is one of my go-to snacks at the moment. I’m trying to get myself out of the winter chocolate eating binge I’ve been in!
I always love reading your posts!! I think my favorite healthy snack is apple slices dipped in peanut butter. 😉
I love hummus, thanks for sharing. These all sound really good and perfect for weekend treats. while watching a good movie.
Yum!! Thank you for so many good snack ideas!!
