Easy and Healthy Snack Ideas

By Genevieve Cunningham

Most people want to be fit and toned. They want to feel good in their own skin and keep their weight at an optimal level. And while most of us wish that this meant a good workout followed by eating whatever we want, it doesn’t really work that way. Instead, diet is actually one of the most important aspects of a fit body. Unfortunately, keeping your diet clean and healthy can be a real challenge … especially when it comes to snacks. If you need some healthy snack ideas, take a look at these easy and delicious options.

Crunchy Veggies

When you’re trying to decide which vegetables make the perfect snacks, just reach for something that crunches. Celery, cucumber, carrots … these are incredibly healthy, low calorie vegetables that make a good snack choice. They're full of nutrients, taste delicious, but add very little to your total caloric intake for the day. Easy win. Throw them in a bag for a quick on the go snack, or leave them in a container for a quick and easy snack at home.


Nuts are a tricky food. If you eat too many, they're considered unhealthy. But in the right amounts, nuts are a good healthy option. They contain healthy fats, protein, and numerous vitamins and nutrients. Each nut brings its own set of healthy benefits to the table. The key is to choose the right nuts, and then to eat them in moderation. Almonds and walnuts are two of your best options, and luckily they're both delicious and easy to find.

Citrus Fruit

Citrus fruit -- things such as oranges, grapefruit, kiwi, and pineapple -- are all packed with high amounts of Vitamin C. Each individual fruit may also bring other healthy benefits. Pineapple, for example, can help soothe a sore throat, and grapefruit can help lower blood pressure. If you want an easy, healthy snack that satisfies a sweet tooth, citrus fruit is an excellent choice.

Healthy snacking is a great way to improve overall diet. Since most of us snack often, these choices are important. We can't just reach for chips and cookies and expect our bodies or health to stay the same. Use these ideas to keep your diet on track, your snacks healthy and delicious, and your health moving in the right direction.
