Healthy Snack Ideas for Busy People

Fruit snacks

Maybe the most popular healthy snack is fruit. Whatever you like is great, so there are no bad choices here. If in case you get tired of eating just fresh fruit, you can add something to it. Apples go great with peanut butter, mix berries with Greek yogurt, and add a fistful of different nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, and walnuts to any fruit you like. You can slice it and carry it anywhere you go in a small Tupperware dish. To add more flavor, sprinkle apples and oranges with cinnamon and cocoa, bananas with seeds, and put a bit of mint and lemon so the fruits get their flavor.

Energy bars and chocolate

For anyone who has a sweet tooth and wants something other than fresh fruit, there is a variety of options. We are going to start with energy bars. They contain different oats, raisins, even chocolate, orange peel, and coconut, which makes them perfect when you are on the go, and you want something sweet to snack on. Another healthy option is chocolate, but make sure it’s dark with at least 70% of cocoa in it. They go great with your coffee, and you don’t have to feel guilty for eating them.

Healthy snacks to satisfy your cravings

We all have moments when we want to eat fatty snacks like chips, for example. Luckily, there is an alternative. As long as you choose butter-free popcorn, they are a great and healthy replacement that will satisfy your cravings. Whole wheat pretzels, rice cake, and whole-grain bread are other healthy options. A bit richer in fat, but as long as you don’t go overboard, peanuts are another snack that won’t harm your health.

Smoothie snacks

Although to some it may not seem like it will be enough, smoothies are a healthy, delicious snack that is easy to make and carry with you. The best thing is, you can mix fruits, vegetables, nuts, and even chicken in it. You can basically use any fruits, and vegetables you have in your home, which is another convenience because you don’t have to shop if you don’t have time. But when you do have some time, search for some recipes and try different tastes.
