Swap it Out: Snacking Tips

I guess you could say I am pro snacking, but it has got to be healthy snacking - no cheesy puffs, please.

Sometimes when we need a snack we are either too hungry or have too strong of a hankering to make a healthy choice. So here are some ideas for healthy swaps.


Sweet
Raisins or dried cherries mixed with dark chocolate chips
Sliced peaches
Maple flavored yogurt
Chocolate ice cubes

Salty
Almonds or pistachios,
Whole-grain crackers like Kashi TLC crackers
Dill pickles

Crunchy
Celery or carrot sticks
A handful of high-fiber cereal
Apple slices
Popcorn

Creamy
Low-fat pudding
Nonfat plain yogurt with fresh fruit
Flavored oatmeal
Nonfat cottage cheese (add some fruit)
Avocado wedges
