Healthy Snacks

One of the most common questions I get is "Can you share some healthy snacks?".

So, with the summer coming to a close (I do not know about you, but I find myself eating more junk food in the summer months due to not being home so much) – and with school starting for those with kiddos, I figured I'd share some with you today!

Although any whole food snack will work as a healthy snack, prioritizing protein and fibre can help to keep you fueled and full between meals. Protein is highly satiating and can help to stabilize blood sugar, which has been shown to promote feelings of fullness and help in managing weight, while fibre can help to promote fullness and support overall digestion.

A simple formula for a healthy and filling snack is: PROTEIN + FIBRE

Here is a list of protein and fibre-rich snack ideas:

  • Tzatziki + Pita

  • Pistachios + Apple

  • Beef Jerky + Veggies or fruit

  • Greek Yogurt + Raspberries
