Eating better doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive, or boring! This giant collection of easy healthy snack recipes is packed with options for any diet and every taste!
Sometimes dinner or lunch just isn’t quite enough! Perhaps you’re looking for a great movie night snack, or something to tide you over until your next meal! These healthy snacks are perfect for your kids or yourself to help you make healthier choices when it comes to your snacks.
What Makes a Snack Healthy?
The best snacks are ones that provide your body with nutrients and are low in things like sugar and salt.
When evaluating healthy snack recipes, look for these ingredients:
- Protein — Protein rich snacks build muscle and reduce appetite
- Fiber — Snacks containing fiber can aid digestion
- Water — Water rich foods are generally low in calories and provide hydration
- Good fats — Healthy fats help you feel full and promote heart health
Can You Snack and Still Lose Weight?
Snacking itself isn’t necessarily going to derail your weight loss efforts. The key is to choose snacks that are high in the “good stuff” mentioned above.
When you are fueling your body with nutrition it needs, there is less room for junk food!
Healthy snacking also:
- Prevents a mid-morning or mid-day “crash”
- Keeps you feeling full so you’re less likely to overeat at meal times
- Boosts metabolism
The “how much” is also an important factor — as even the healthiest of snacks should be enjoyed in moderation, if weight loss is the goal.
Keep in mind that there is no “magic” food that will make you lose weight! It’s all about balance — making good choices whenever possible, exercise, and self care.
