It can be hard to find healthy snacks to eat throughout the day whether you are working, playing, or taking the kids out for some summer fun. Summer may be a good excuse to grab some junk food, but there are many other tasty options that will give us the nutrients our bodies need. We have come up with some of our favorite healthy and affordable snacks that give us the proper nutrients to carry out our day!
GoGo Squeez Applesauce
These are a great source of fiber made with 100% fruit. With so many flavors to choose from, there is a flavor for everyone. They are perfect snacks for busy families--kids and adults!
Sabra Hummus w/ Pretzels
This is another quick, healthy option to grab on the go. You can also try Sabra Hummus Singles and bring along a snack bag of carrots or celery to get that vegetable intake!
Simply 7 Quinoa Chips are the must-have on the market. We all love to snack on our favorite bag of chips, but quinoa chips are addicting AND 40% less fattening than potato chips. They have a delicious flavor and are a great source of protein.
It’s hard not to be biased because cheese is SO good, but string cheese really should be a staple for everyone. They give a small source of protein with low calories. It’s also perfect to pair with a handful of almonds!
Apples and Peanut Butter
Apples paired with peanut butter is easy, nutritious, and filling. Many fitness trainers recommend this snack before a workout to give quick energy for that boost you need to push through!
Protein-filled and tasty are the appropriate ways to describe beef jerky. As a healthy snack, be careful to select the correct brand. Chef’s Cut is a popular and savory choice.
Fiber, antioxidants, and happiness. Popcorn is a healthy snack when it is air popped, and not drenched with butter or salt. Skinny Pop and Smartfood brands are also highly recommended from our end!
