The 10 Best Healthy Snacks for Weight Loss

A snack, in its essence, is any food consumed between meals.  It's crucial to remember that a snack portion should be sufficient to satiate your hunger but not so much that it disrupts your appetite for a main meal.  Snacks can be a part of your diet, especially if you aim to manage your weight.  Planning the type of snacks you carry for work or on the go can enhance your food variety, diversify the nutrients you consume, and prevent you from feeling hungry between meals.  Always prioritize nutrient-dense options (fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals) to ensure your snacks provide the nutrition your body needs and keep you full. 

Here are 10 healthy, delicious snacks to try:

  1. ¼ cup hummus and veggie sticks such as carrots, celery, cucumbers, or peppers.

  2. 6-ounce container of plain low-fat Greek yogurt with any berries.

  3. 21 almonds, 12 walnut halves, or 45 pistachio nuts.

  4. 1 small banana with 2 teaspoons peanut, sunflower, or almond butter.

  5. One ounce of dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao)

  6. 1 slice 100% whole grain toast (e.g., Melba or Ezequiel) with 1.5 Tbsp. Peanut butter.  

  7. 1 piece reduced-fat string cheese with 1 sliced apple.

  8. Low-fat cottage cheese with blueberries and a sprinkle of granola.

  9. 1 hard-cooked egg and 1 slice of 100% whole grain toast.

  10. 4 cups organic popcorn sprinkled with 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan or Nutritional Yeast.   

When you snack, it's essential to be present in the moment. Make eating a mindful and relaxing break, away from your computer and work. Take the time to savor each bite and appreciate the flavors and textures of your snack.
