11 Best Healthy Snacks List

Snacking is not necessarily a bad habit. However, you can turn them into something beneficial to your body if you know what to snack. Steer away from processed food, high sugar, and calories and you’re set to go. To make it easier, we list the best healthy snacks for you to choose from.

1. Crunchy Apple
Packed with fiber, biting into an apple can solve your snacking misery. It’s true what they say, an apple a day keeps sickness at bay.

2. Carrots & Celery Sticks
This pair is so famous in the healthy snacks universe. With 25 calories per medium carrot and 6 calories per medium celery stalk, who would have said no to them.

3. Shrimp & Sauce
Who says protein can’t be a snacking option. Shrimp drizzled with some sauces can also be the perfect appetizer before your meal.

4. Salmon Sushi
Another protein option as a snack. Eat the salmon alone or roll it into a sushi and wrap it all up with seaweed sheet, yummy.

5. Edamame
A great snack to pair with sushi, edamame is rich in protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. Let’s not forget low in calories.

6. Banana
Low fat, high in potassium and gluten free. Great source of energy to help you power up in between lunch and dinners.

7. Berries
Blueberries, blackberries, and cranberries; any type of berries will do. Even the size seems like a great choice to munch on.

8. Oatmeal
Highly popular for breakfast, this warm and easy to make oatmeal can be taken as snacks as well. One cup of cooked oatmeal only contains 150 calories.

9. Nuts
Eat them raw or have them dry roasted. Walnuts, almonds and other nuts can help lower your cholesterol and strengthen your heart.

10. Fruity Yogurt
An excellent source of calcium, potassium, protein, zinc, and vitamins B6 and B12. When snacking, try to keep it at a cup of yogurt and fruit. That’s nothing more than 200 calories.

11. Popcorn
Not to be mistaken with its evil twin, the butter drenched popcorn you get at the cinema. We’re talking about the air-popped popcorn. They only contain 30 calories per cup.
