Healthy Snack Ideas

Snacks!

If we all admit it, we love to snack.  There is something about munching on something as we work, run errands, or watch t.v.  And having a “little something” during the day or evening might even be something that we look forward to each day.

But, if you are trying to eat healthy, eating a doughnut, cookie, or some chips doesn’t really fall into the “healthy” category.

However, this does not mean that you have to just give up snacking altogether, nor does it mean that you have to chew on a plain celery stick all the time!  Even a clean and healthy diet can allow for snacks.  Actually, there are many options for you to choose from that are healthy AND delicious!

Here are a few ideas for some healthy snacks.  They are easy to put together with very little prep work, which means you can have these in the fridge ready to go whenever you want that snack!  These options also provide some variety to your snacking menu, in addition to fitting into whatever your preference is – salty, sweet, protein, or a combination!
