Snacking is a part of everyone’s day, but what should you be snacking on? Too much bread and you get indigestion. Too much salt and your blood pressure increases. Too much fat and your arteries clog. What’s left? Inside are 10 nutrient-packed snacks…

1. Guacamole & Almond Chips (221 calories)

Gluten-free almond chips have more than double the protein of corn and potato chips. This power-combo has about 5 grams of dietary fiber (20% DV) and supplies long-lasting, stable energy.

2. Apple & Cashew Butter (158 calories)

Cut a medium apple into slices, and spread 1 tablespoon of cashew butter, almond butter, or sunflower butter on the pieces. You’ll get a decent amount of protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fat.

3. Plain Greek Yogurt, Fruit & Nuts (292 calories)

Filled with flavor and perfect for breakfast. This combination will give you a high amount of calcium (37% DV), protein (11g), vitamin C (if strawberries are added) and vitamin E (if almonds are added).

4. Peanut Butter & Banana Crackers (356 calories)

This is a wonderful snack to eat an hour before you go to the gym. Be sure to find whole-grain crackers that are rich in fiber and low in calories. You’ll get a balanced mix of potassium, fiber, protein, and heart-healthy fats.

5. Veggies & Hummus (500 calories)

A common size of real hummus (1 cup) can contain anywhere from 350-450 calories, which makes this snack a nice meal substitute. You can get different vitamins depending on your vegetable choice, but the fiber, protein, and good fat is all there!

6. Raisins, Cranberries, & Nuts (222 calories)

Throw 2 tablespoons of raisins, cranberries, and peanuts into a Ziploc bag for a mid-day snack. You will get potassium, phenols, antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fats.

7. Edamame (191 calories)

Edamame is good for a pre-meal snack to help you cut back on mealtime calories. You can find them in the freezer section at the supermarket. They contain a satisfying amount of protein, fiber (over 25% DV), and 8g of healthy fats.

8. Cottage Cheese & Berries (180 calories)

This could be an awesome after breakfast snack as it has protein and some good fats. Once you load it up with berries you get the antioxidant benefits that fight cognitive decline and lower the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

9. Skinny Latte & Almonds (270 calories)

Breakfast on the go again… Coffee is a delicious snack that can help boost your metabolism (as long as you don’t overdo it on the cream and sugar in your latte). Coffee can reduce the risk of certain cancers and stroke, while almonds contain healthy fats, fiber, protein, and vitamin E.

10. Antipasto Plate (361 calories)

Don’t take too much cheese or olives for your antipasto plate because they can really pack on excess calories. The olives contain heart-healthy fats, the veggies are packed with vitamins and minerals, and the cheese offers a bit of calcium.
