Favorite Healthy Snack

With summer right around the corner I am doing my best to get into shape and start eating healthier. I am getting bored with ym usual healthy snacks and was wondering what everyone elses favorite healthy snacks are? One if mine is fresh jicama dipped in a greek yogurt dip I get from Trader Joes.

Watermelon is my weakness! I could eat it every day. I also eat a ton of navel oranges. During the summer I eat a lot of fresh cherry tomatoes and cucumbers. I also love carrots dipped in hummus. I love almonds too. Those chocolate covered banana slices someone else mentioned are really tasty. And I love grilling pineapple, zucchini and squash during the summer.

Mmmm, I love fresh jicama!  I actually have 2 that I need to cut... thanks for the reminder :smileywink:  My fav healthy snack is kale chips.  I love to snack, its totally my weakness.  But I started making kale chips for me & my girls, and they gobble it up!  A little sea salt & brewers yeast, and they're good to go!  I personally like to put a little chili powder on it for some kick :smileywink:  So delish!

In-season fresh fruit. I could eat fruit forever. Especially this time of year, when the cherries and berries are coming into season in my part of the country. :smileyhappy:

For me at this time of year it's freshly cut pineapple not the can kind. Also, mandarin oranges and Naked smoothies.

Raw almonds are my favorite snack, I can't stand the salted ones. Also apples dipped in plain greek yogurt (the **bleep**e brand is the best) or a bagel thin with some low sugar peanut butter and sliced bananas on top.

 

edit: wow they bleeped the yogurt brand haha what. It's F@ge ...

Yay for the search function! I’m really trying to live a healthier lifestyle, so I’m glad I did a quick search and found this. I love some of the suggestions in here.

I can't say I eat these all the time, but pumpkin seeds are super good for you...zinc, healthy fats, and magnesium (most people are magnesium deficient). I learned this when I was fighting a cold, really helps.

 

Since pine nuts are so expensive (don't get me wrong, they're also super healthy), I love making pesto w/ pumpkin seeds instead...hmmm fresh basil.

I remembered this thread yesterday at Target when I spotted a big ole can of Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds. I had to tell my fellow healthy snacker/almond lovers to go buy a can!

I love Mary's Gone Crackers, which are available at Costco right now for a really good price! It's got all these seeds to give you omega 3's, plus a satisfying crunch and is organic & gluten free. I love hummus with veggies too but I'm too lazy to make it and really like Trader Joe's brand Mediterranean style hummus because it has a layer of olive oil, herbs, and pine nuts on top, tastes and looks more like homemade-yum-o! My weird one is canned baby corn with evoo/balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and granulated garlic powder. Can you tell I love savory snacks most?

I was just introduced to couscous and that is my new favorite dish, I mix it with some rinsed kidney beans and chick peas and some sofrito sauce for a bit of flavor and yum high protein low calorie dish I can snack on and not feel guilty !!!

This thread makes me want to hit up Costco this week and get a bag, it's a nice sized bag too, it's not 1/2 air like most big chip bags.

Re: Favorite Healthy Snack

You have to try Mary's Gone crackers from Costco. Or frozen edamame boiled with salt. It's super easy.
