Healthy Eating Snack Ideas

One of the easiest areas to go off track when trying to eat healthily is snacks. We often get hungry in the middle of the day or late at night and reach for the wrong things because there are no healthy options available. Always keep healthy snacks on hand. Take them with you to work or on road trips, running errands around town, kids' sports games, and of course in your kitchen. It's easy to grab the wrong thing when we need a quick pick-me-up and don't have a healthy option within reach. This is essential for staying on track with a healthy eating lifestyle. A healthier you is a healthier home. Here are a few good healthy eating snack ideas :

  • Apples with peanut butter, cashew butter, or almond butter 
  •  Almonds, Cashews, Pistachios, Pecans - buy bulk and make little 1-ounce snack bags
