Healthy Tips

Think of a snack not as an indulgence, but as a "little meal"— an opportunity to consume some good quality protein, vitamins, fiber, and heart-healthy fat. Have nutritious food in special "snack spots" in your pantry and refrigerator, so when hunger strikes you can easily make good choices.

Choose organic whole grains, fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds and low-fat dairy products as the basis for healthy snacks. Avoid white flour and choose whole-grain breads and crackers.

There's nothing like protein to give you a steady supply of energy.

  • – Low-fat cottage cheese with diced cucumber, radishes, and dill
  • – Low-fat cottage cheese with unsweetened canned pineapple chunks and fresh mint
  • – Chicken Pita: Diced cooked chicken tossed in low-fat hummus and stuffed into wholegrain pita with shredded lettuce
  • – Wholegrain, unsweetened breakfast cereal with soy or skim milk and slivered almonds

Cool and Refreshing

You return home from a jog or a walk and what you want is a quick cool-down. Here are some make-ahead snacks to welcome you home.

  • – Low-fat fruit smoothie
  • – Popsicles made from any kind of organic fruit juice
  • – Chilled watermelon wedges
  • – Iced herbal or green tea
  • – Tomato juice spiked with fresh lemon or lime juice
  • – Unsweetened fruit juice combine with club soda or crushed ice

Warm and Comforting

These snacks are for those difficult days when you need something soothing and familiar.

  • – Oatmeal with Raisins
  • – 7-grain porridge with honey and walnuts
  • – Zesty Bean Wrap: Mash beans with salsa and some shredded low-fat cheese, wrap in whole wheat tortilla and heat

  • – Baked organic soy or blue corn chips with salsa for dip
  • – Wholegrain cracker topped with low-fat cream cheese and smoked salmon or mackerel
  • – A small handful of spiced walnuts, tamari almonds, or dry-roasted soy nuts
  • – Organic Vegetable sticks with quick low-fat dips, such as yogurt blended with curry powder and lime juice

Sweet and Satisfying

Aim for quality nutrition by choosing sweet snacks that rely on Mother Nature's sweetener: fresh and dried organic fruit

  • – Dates stuffed with walnuts and sprinkled with cinnamon

Vary vegetable snacks by thinking in colors. Have a green snack today, an orange one tomorrow and a red one the next day.

  • – Baked potato with low-fat sour cream and chives
