Stay Energized with 4 Healthy Snack Ideas

It's one thing to eat healthy at mealtimes, but snacking healthfully can be just as important. The best snack for you is the one that tastes good and keeps you feeling energized between meals, such as:

Handful of nuts: Nuts are full of healthy fats and protein, which help stabilize blood sugar levels. To satisfy salt cravings, try tamari almonds instead of pre-salted blends.

Veggies and dip: Carrots, celery, broccoli, tomato, cucumber and cauliflower are just a few of veggies you can dip. For healthy dips, try hummus, guacamole, baba ghanoush or bean dip.

Apple with almond butter: Salty and sweet, this combo is a winner. The fiber of the apple and the protein of the almond butter help you to feel full and energized.

Yogurt and berries: Live yogurt has probiotics that help keep your gut healthy. Berries add sweetness along with nutrients that support your blood vessels’ health.
