Hello, and welcome back to Join The ME Project. Today, I will be sharing ten healthy snack options, some savory, some sweet. Does your favorite healthy snack make the list?

List of 10

Pistachios: They are one of my favorite nuts to eat, and a great addition to both savory and sweet meals. The generally accepted portion amount is about 1 cup. You can put some in a sandwich bag and take with you on the go.

Watermelon: If you’ve read, Spoonie Tips for Surviving Winter, you would know that I am partial to watermelon. It’s great for an in-between meal snack and it aids in hydration which is also important.

Broccoli: By itself, it’s fresh and good. But my sister has got me hooked on drizzling the broccoli with a little olive oil, some lemon pepper seasoning, and roasting it for a few minutes. It’s really good.

Healthy Snacks

Cottage Cheese: Cottage Cheese may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it is a great healthy option to consider. It’s a great source of protein and can be topped with savory or sweet depending on your preference. My favorite combination is mandarin oranges and honey.

Guacamole: Now, guacamole, is my mother’s favorite snack. Usually, we buy a bag of avocados from our local Sam’s Club and we make it fresh and home. Eat it with tortilla chips or veggies.

Bananas: I think bananas are the quiet, unsung hero in our house. They offer so many health benefits, I could probably write a blog post on that alone. We try to keep them in the house, especially now that we’ve cut down on sweets.

Happy Snacks

Apples: Usually, when I have an apple as a snack it’s in combination with something else. I will slice up an apple and pair it with some caramel dip or cheese. Most of the time, it’s apple slices, cheese, and whatever lunch meat we have available.

Easy Tuna Salad: This easy tuna salad is just that, easy. Take a bowl, get your tuna, mayo, and lemon juice. Mix those ingredients together and then add salt and pepper to taste. Put over a bed of lettuce or a slice of tomato.

Yogurt Parfait: The main components of yogurt parfaits are the fruit, yogurt, and granola if you like it. The possibilities truly are endless. Making a parfait should be based on your specific taste or dietary needs.

Smoothies: I am a huge fan of smoothies. The day can go by so quickly before you realize you haven’t had anything to eat. Smoothies don’t take long to make and you can also make them ahead of time. If you have an issue eating all of your fruits and veggies, just cram them in a smoothie.

As always, let me know what you think in the comments below. What healthy snacks would you include in a top ten list? To read more posts like this one visit Village Bakery.

    Love it! I prefer almonds over walnuts and go for Greek yoghurt (unsweetened) rather than cottage cheese 🤗

      My mom loves Greek yogurt! I don’t mind it in my smoothies or parfaits.

    I have recently discovered quite an addiction to yogurt parfaits, not going to lie, so I’ve started making them quite regularly at home lol! Could be worse, at least I’m craving something I want…
