Choosing healthy snacks is always a hot topic with clients, because this is often where we sabotage our efforts to eat healthy. The truth is that our society doesn’t make it easy to be healthy – especially in the snack category. At practically every street corner it’s easy to find cookies, chips, and ice cream. It’s not so easy to find snacks that are made from whole foods (grains, nuts, vegetables, fruits, etc.) 

I am one of those people who needs to eat several times throughout the day, and I have struggled at times with coming up with snacks that are healthy, tasty, and satisfying.  My clients and I find that we are able to stay on track and have fewer cravings when we keep healthy options on hand (at home and work).

Here is a list of my favorite snacks:  

  • Greek Yogurt (I like Fage brand, with some fruit, honey, or agave nectar.) 
  • Hard Boiled Eggs with sea salt (Choose free range if possible.) 
    Amy’s Organic brand Frozen Burritos 
  • Amy’s Organic brand Canned Soup (I like the heartier ones like split pea, lentil, and black bean.) 
  • Brown rice crackers with Guacamole 
  • Sprouted Grain bread or English muffin with almond butter or peanut butter. 
  • Hummus with baby carrots 
  • Apple or celery with almond or peanut butter 
  • Handful of almonds and a piece of fruit 
  • Quesadilla made with a sprouted grain tortilla, cheese, salsa, and black beans 
  • Fig Newman’s (They are the more natural version of fig newtons.) 
    Sweet Potato (You can bake a bunch of them when you’re home at night watching TV.)
