Raw Veggies & Dip
Arrange a cup of healthy color—with sticks of carrots, peppers, cucumber spears, snow peas, celery, mushroom halves, and cherry tomatoes. And match it with a tablespoon of homemade chickpea spread or hummus for dipping!
Almond Butter on Toast
Smear the protein-rich goodness of almond butter on a slice of light or dark rye or whole grain toast. You can even go a little bananas and top your toast with one-inch slices of the fruit to add some natural sweetness to your midday or mid-morning snack.

Red or Green Seedless Grapes
I love grapes as a cool summer snack. They are light on your stomach and 20 grapes equal less than 100 calories. Plus, you can pop them in the freezer for a really cool, sweet treat.
Popcorn is not necessarily an unhealthy snack on its own. It really depends on how you prepare it. For instance, if you use an air popper to pop a few cups and forgo adding the butter, oils, and salt, you’ll have a snack that weighs in at less than 60 calories.
Apple Slices & Peanut Butter
There’s nothing healthier or more satisfying than the crunchy protein that a nice, shiny apple delivers. Core and cut yours into bites sized slices and smear on a little nut butter of your choice. You’ll get fiber, protein, and vitamins all in one transportable snack.
