Quick healthy snack ideas

Easy healthy snackin' ideas:

Apple or pear with natural almond butter

Hummus with carrot sticks or sliced red/yellow/orange peppers

Ricotta cheese, mixed with cocoa powder, stevia, and vanilla extract (delicious high protein, low carb snack!)

Cottage cheese mixed with yogurt, berries, and walnuts or pecans

A couple hard boiled eggs with celery sticks and hummus(roasted red pepper hummus is my favorite)

Celery sticks with organic peanut butter or almond butter
Avocado slices

A piece of organic sprouted grain toast (sprouted grain preferred nutritionally over “whole grain”) with nut butter and berries

A bowl of blueberries mixed with raw almonds

Cottage cheese with cinnamon, apple slices, and walnuts

Turkey Jerky

Healthy Trail Mix (recipe as follows)


1/4 cup quick cooking oats
1⁄2 tbsp honey
1⁄4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sliced almonds
1 tbsp dried cherries
1 tbsp semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp walnuts
Mix honey into oats and form dime-sized clusters. Spread on a baking sheet and toast at 275° F for 5 minutes. Once cooled, toss in a sealable container with remaining ingredients.
