my favorite healthy snacks

Our Elf for Health Challenge for Wednesday this week is to “pack a healthy snack.”

I’ve said many times before that I’m definitely a “snacker” and eat every 3-4.5 hours (or I really turn into a crab. whoops.)

In honor of the challenge tomorrow, I thought I’d share a few of my absolute favorite healthy snacks.

  • an apple with nuts or some nut butter
  • veggies with hummus (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and/or celery are my favorites)
  • any fruit (apple, banana, orange, grapes {frozen grapes are awesome too}, berries if they’re in season, kiwi, etc.)
  • applesauce with PB2 and cinnamon (if you haven’t tried this yet, do. asap.)
  • low-sugar cereal or homemade granola with almond milk
  • greek yogurt (So Delicious vanilla coconut milk is my favorite) topped with cinnamon and fresh fruit (pom. seeds, berries, etc.)
  • celery with peanut butter (or hummus)
  • snack bars occasionally…my favorites are Larabars, KIND bars, and PureBars (the ingredients are good!)
  • almonds, cashews, or walnuts with raisins or another dried fruit (*no sugar added) –aka homemade trail mix
  • a hard-boiled egg and a slice of 100% whole-wheat bread
  • air-popped popcorn!  (YUM.)  I also really love Angie’s popcorn.
  • edamame with sea salt
  • whole-grain pita chips with hummus
  • (organic) blue-corn tortilla chips with fresh salsa and black beans

    I like apples with pb, luna bars, hummus with egg or veggies, kind bars, and chobani for snacks! So many snacks, those are just to name a few!

    Happy Tuesday! <3

  3. Great ideas! Lately I’m on a popcorn kick too. My go-to snack lately is a mini popcorn bag and an orange. Other kicks I’ve gone on in the past couple of months-an apple and a string cheese, hummus and pita chips and Chobani!

    • hummus and pita chips…I never get sick of that combination! I only buy pita chips once in a while though because it’s so easy for me to just mindlessly each SO many of them at once :)

  4. I need to eat every 3-4 hours too! Some of my favorite snacks are Greek yogurt and a sliced apple with cinnamon.
