Smarter Snacking

A healthy diet includes snacks to help you get through the day.  Be sure you are getting the most out of your snack by including fiber in your snack choices.  Fiber filled snacks are not only healthy, but the fiber helps keep you sated so you will eat less.

Here are some healthy snack choices:

  • Instead of a Snickers Bar (250 Calories), choose 1 cup of grapes (104 calories) and 2 dark chocolate squares (110 calories) [Total 214 calories]
  • Instead of an individual (1.5 ounce) bag of Goldfish crackers (210 calories), choose Hummus with celery and carrot sticks (140 calories)
  • Instead of 1 slice of banana nut bread (420 calories), choose 1 small banana (90 calories) and a single-serve container of Greek yogurt (130 calories) [Total 220 calories]
  • Instead of 2 ounces of Fritos (320 calories), choose 1 ounces of SkinnyPop popcorn (300 calories)

Next time you reach for a snack, be sure it includes fiber to help keep you satisfied for longer.

    My go to snack is celery with peanut butter. The water content of the celery is refreshing and the fiber content of the peanut butter helps fill you up!
