Healthy Snack IdeasLike you, I’m trying to learn how to eat healthier.  I wanted a long list of healthy snack ideas to choose from when preparing my shopping list, so I decided to create one.  Now I’m sharing it with you in the hopes that you”ll find it beneficial too!

  1. Tomato slices with mozzarella cheese sprinkled on top and a dash of olive oil
  2. Caramel rice cake
  3. 3 cups of air-popped popcorn with 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese topping
  4. 1/2 bagel with 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  5. 1/2 cup frozen yogurt
  6. Cut up some fresh fruit and stir it into 1/2 cup of low-fat cottage cheese
  7. 9 animal crackers
  8. 50 thin pretzel sticks
  9. Apple slices and string cheese
  10. Sliced zucchini, sprinkled with olive oil, a little salt and a little Parmesan cheese
  11. 1/2 cantelope, scrape out all of the seeds and put low fat or fat free frozen yogurt in.  Delicious on a warm summer day!
  12. Slice an apple into rings, spread peanut butter on and sprinkle with a little coconut or maybe even a few chocolate chips
  13. Fresh avocado on toast – Remove the meat of the avocado from the skin and mash in a bowl (sprinkle on a little lemon juice to retain color), toast your favorite bread and spread avocado on it.  Add salt and pepper.
  14. Mix together 1/2 cup of mini shredded wheat, a small amount of dried fruit and nuts (one large tablespoon)
  15. Baked tortilla chips and salsa
  16. 1 cup of non-fat or low-fat yogurt
  17. 1 hard boiled egg
  18. 1/2 turkey sandwich made with mustard instead of mayo
  19. Yogurt and fresh fruit parfait – layer vanilla yogurt and your choice of fruit.  Some ideas are blueberries, strawberries, bananas, melon, etc.  Need an on-the-go snack?  Layer your yogurt and fruit parfait in a waffle cone!
  20. Banana split made healthy by topping your banana with yogurt flavors – strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, blueberry, etc. Then sprinkle a little low-fat granola on top.
  21. Wrap a piece of uncured (no nitrates or nitrites) ham or turkey around string cheese.
