30 Healthy Snacks For Every Diet

Whether you’re counting calories or you’ve been a vegan for years, it can be difficult to find the perfect healthy snacks based on your diet. As a matter of fact, you’ve probably been scouring the Internet to find the healthiest snacks based on your dietary needs.

The trouble with finding “healthy snacks” is that every diet is different, and every person is different. That means that “healthy” means something different for everyone. For example, keto snacks might not be great for someone with gallbladder issues. Additionally, low-carb snacks might be a bad idea for those who burn a lot of energy throughout the day.

Ultimately, your snacking should go hand-in-hand with your diet, and I’m not just talking about fad diets. For example, if you’re vegan by choice, you might be on the lookout for high-protein snacks and other vegan snacks. On the other hand, those who have difficulty regulating their blood sugar might find that snacks for diabetics are the best for their diet.

By this time, you’ve probably been searching for the best snacks by diet, and there are tons out there that can help you stick to your health and wellness plan.

The first thing you have to do is assess which diet will work best for you. Now, you may have already done this, and if that’s the case, jump right in. 

However, if you aren’t sure which healthy snacks ideas will help you the most, take your time and consider the different types of diets available. Then, think about what your current diet looks like. And I’m not just talking about the foods you stop yourself from eating or foods you say you’re going to start eating, but what are the foods you really eat. 

Finally, check out the different snack ideas that I found for you. 

Find Your Snacks:

High-Protein Snacks

Snacks that are high in protein are great for anyone on a weight loss plan. This is because high-protein foods often help you feel fuller and avoid overeating.

Additionally, when you add exercise and high-protein foods together, you up your chances of building lean muscle. This can help you burn more calories, even when you’re at rest.

And who doesn’t want to burn calories while they’re relaxing? 

There are a lot of ways to get your protein in throughout the day. You can add lean meats to your major meals. You can use LadyBoss LEAN® as a complete meal replacement. And you can bring in high-protein snacks throughout the day.

Now, you might be wondering if that is all too much protein. The answer is: it depends. 

What does it depend on?

Well, your diet and any medical conditions you may have. Talk to your doctor about the amount of protein you should consume. You may find that you simply don’t get enough throughout your day. 

This is when you want to add more protein-packed snacks to your daily menu. If you don’t know where to begin, check out these easy go-to snacks that you can buy or make.

Turkey Jerky

While you might think that beef jerky tastes better and is much better for you, turkey jerky does have its perks.

Before you get all grossed out, do know that jerky of any kind isn’t just raw and dehydrated. In order to dehydrate it, the meat does have to come up to temperature and is therefore cooked. So, don’t worry.

Turkey jerky is absolutely packed with protein. As a matter of fact, it has 10 grams of protein per serving and only 4 grams of carbohydrates. 

If you’re the do-it-yourself type, you can make your own turkey jerky with a dehydrator and your favorite marinade. It’s easy to make, but I will warn you that it takes quite a bit of time.

However, they do sell turkey jerky pretty much anywhere you can get groceries. 

Hard-Boiled Eggs

With 6 grams of protein and only 78 calories per egg, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck in the protein department.

“But hard-boiled eggs smeeeeeelllllll!”

I get it. You don’t have to eat them in public settings. They can be your at-home high-protein snacks. Besides, you can do a lot of great stuff with one little hard-boiled egg.

Cut it in half, and sprinkle some of your favorite low-sodium seasoning on it. Just try it. Any mix of seasonings will do. Trust me. It’ll add flavor, depth, and deliciousness to your hard-boiled egg-sperience. 

Of course, you can buy hard-boiled eggs already made at the store, but cooking them is so simple. 

Here’s what you do:

  • Put eggs in a pot with cold water
  • Heat until boiling
  • Let boil for 10 minutes
  • Remove from heat
  • Let sit in hot water for 2 minutes
  • Remove eggs from the pot
  • Run cold water over eggs to stop the cooking process.

Sure it seems like there are a lot of steps, but as long as you set a timer, boiling an egg is no sweat.

Energy Balls

Let me know when you’re done laughing at the name. 

No really. I’ll wait.

Energy balls are exactly what they sound like: little balls of energy. The best part about these high-protein snacks is that they are sweet. They’re a great way to curb your cravings while you get the nutrients your body needs. 

Energy balls are often made with your favorite protein powder, some form of nut butter (I’m talkin’ peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter, etc.), and a few add-ons. 

These add-ons can include chopped nuts, dark chocolate chunks, and dried fruits.

Ultimately, you mix all of this stuff together to create a delicious little ball of energy that can sit in your fridge until you’re ready to devour it.

Consider taking this recipe for protein cookies and making them into your own sweet treat energy balls.

Roasted Chickpeas

Where are you going? Sounds gross, eh? 

Stop right there!

What happens when you want to ditch the potato chips and pretzels, but still want a crunchy snack? You would be amazed at how delicious a roasted chickpea is… and how easily it can replace those hard corn-crunchies that are full of salt. 

If you want to avoid that salt, or if your body doesn’t do well digesting corn, making your own roasted chickpeas is great. This game-changing snack is very easy to make, and it can be seasoned any way you’d like.

Here’s how to roast chickpeas:

  1. Drain and rinse one can of chickpeas
  2. Pat completely dry with a paper towel
  3. Toss in olive oil
  4. Spread on a lined baking sheet
  5. Roast at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until crispy
  6. Toss in your favorite low-sodium seasonings

You can eat them warm or let them cool. Once they’re cooled completely, they’ll last up to two weeks in an airtight container. However, once you taste them, I doubt they’ll last longer than a day.

Apples and Nut Butter

Apples and peanut butter aren’t just healthy snacks for kids. Adults can enjoy them as well. They’re a great snack to have between breakfast and lunch because they can curb your appetite nicely. 

There is one setback to having this high-protein snack. Apples tend to contain a lot of sugar. One apple can have up to and over 19 grams of sugar. 

But don’t worry. If you’re watching your sugar intake, consider switching out the apple for other low-calorie snacks, like celery or carrots. Carrots are sweet, and when dipped in almond butter or peanut butter, they make for a great crunchy snack.

Keto and Gluten-Free Snacks

While LadyBoss doesn’t recommend the Keto diet because of its food restrictions, some keto-friendly snacks can be used in the blocking method that we’ve found effective… if you know what to look for. 

I mean, let’s face it… it can be challenging to find a great keto-friendly snack that is low in fats and calories. One of the best tricks to the keto diet is to watch your sugar intake and your fat intake at the same time.

Don’t get me wrong. You can have fats. Just make sure you’re focusing on the good fats. Just because keto diets and gluten-free diets “allow” you to eat bacon and cheese and butter doesn’t necessarily mean that you should have them for every meal.

Remember, nothing in excess. You don’t want to over-do anything. Eating too many of these bad fats can lead to other health issues, including gallbladder dysfunctions.

The best thing you can do on the keto diet or a gluten-free diet is to focus on the good fats. We all know that these fats come from foods like avocados and fatty fish. Of course, adding lean meats like poultry is also a great way to get protein while following your diet.

That’s all great for larger meals like lunch and dinner, but what about snacks? Well, I hate to tell you, but baked cheese might be on the list of keto-friendly snacks, but it’s not the best thing for you.

Check out these low-fat, keto-friendly snacks that are also gluten-free.

Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Tuna is a great protein to add to your diet when you are watching your sugar intake. It’s also an energy booster. 

Oh, and here’s a secret few know… tuna doesn’t have to be drowning in mayonnaise to taste good. You can simply add your favorite flavor profiles to make it delicious. 

What do I mean? Well, if you drain a can of tuna and lightly sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning on it, you simply have to add your favorite veggies, and boom! You have one heck of a snack.

Wrap that mixture in a lettuce wrap, and you have a mobile snack.

If you’re not a fan of lemon pepper, consider your favorite flavors. Do you want to spice things up? No sweat! Just add some cayenne pepper to your tuna. 

Need a little more than the fishy flavor? Add a mashed-up hard boiled egg to your mixture. This will give you extra flavor, extra protein, and extra texture.

Start experimenting with the different flavor profiles you can give your tuna wraps. Additionally, pick the lettuce that gives you the most satisfaction. What I mean by that is that there are a lot of different kinds of lettuce. Each one has a different texture. If your pallet appreciates a heartier leaf, consider adding butter lettuce or kale. If you want something crispier, iceberg lettuce is great.

Popcorn

If you’ve been researching gluten-free snacks, you’ve probably seen popcorn at the top of nearly every list.

That’s because popcorn fits in nearly every category of healthy snacks. It’s low-calorie, gluten-free, and perfect for keto.

Just make sure you hold back on the toppings. Going for processed cheese powder can up your fat intake as well as your sodium intake. If you’re watching your salts, consider sprinkling low-sodium or salt-free seasoning on top of your popcorn in place of salt and butter.

Avocado Egg Cups

Avocado egg cups aren’t just for breakfast. As a matter of fact, they make great gluten-free snacks and a warm addition to your snack time. If you want to splurge a little bit, crumble up some cooked bacon on top to give yourself a little extra salt. 

The best part about these snacks is how easy they are to make.

Simply cut an avocado in half, and take the pit out. Scoop out a little bit of the avocado, leaving some around the edges of the skin. Then, crack an egg into the hole on each side. Bake in a 400-degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked to your liking.

Not only is this a gluten-free and keto-friendly snack, but it is also one of the most common paleo snacks out there.

Turkey Wrap-Ups

You might be thinking that this is a turkey pinwheel. Well, unfortunately, both the keto and gluten-free diet want you to avoid carbs and wheat. So, instead of grabbing tortillas, I have a better idea for you.

Use nitrate-free deli turkey as your vessel. What I mean to say is, use the turkey itself in place of the tortilla or wrap. 

Add your favorite low-fat cheese and a few crunchy veggies (I especially like red bell peppers and cucumbers in this situation). 

Granola Yogurt Parfait

Just because you’re on a gluten-free diet doesn’t mean that you can’t have a sweet treat. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of great ways to get your sweets on both keto and gluten-free diets.

The trick is to avoid foods that have extra sugar added to them. So, you might want to stay away from the gluten-free cakes, as they tend to have a bit more sugar and salt in them to make them taste better.

And no, that extra sugar doesn’t make them taste that much better. 

So, it’s best to reach for something like a yogurt and granola parfait. Use plain, non-fat greek yogurt and keto-friendly granola. 

Simply layer the yogurt and granola in your favorite cup, and enjoy.

Low-Calorie Snacks

If you know LadyBoss, you know that we aren’t fans of counting calories in the traditional sense. That’s because 100 calories of a banana are much better for you than 100 calories of pizza… in a ton of different ways.

However, if your calorie intake is a concern for you, or if you’re working on portion control, you may find that low-calorie snacking is a great way to get closer to your weight loss goals.

Additionally, if one of your main hurdles in your weight loss journey is snacking, then low-calorie snacks are an important substitute for you. 

Either way, remember that it’s important to get enough calories throughout the day, but if over-snacking is an issue, be sure to check out these awesome low-cal snacks we found.

Banana Mush

You don’t have to be a kid to eat like one… sometimes. And sometimes, mashing up a banana until it’s the consistency of pudding is a great start. Sprinkle on a little bit of cinnamon to give you the added anti-inflammatory benefit as well as great flavor.

A banana is just over 100 calories, and if you turn it to mush, you’ll get a texture that can help you curb cravings for quite a while.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

A lot of seeds and nuts tend to be high in calories because they also tend to have oils in them. Pumpkin seeds are not different.

However, one ounce of pumpkin seeds has around 126 calories… but it also has 5 grams of dietary fiber and 5 grams of protein.

These two elements of pumpkin seeds make them a healthy snack that lasts a long time.

So, if you’re like me and you continuously have to be stuffing your face, pumpkin seeds are a great way to make 20 minutes of snacking only around 125 calories.

Caprese Salad

Yes, you can have a nice little salad as a snack from time to time. And what better way to enjoy a low-calorie snack than to fill your plate with fresh foods.

If you take one serving of fresh mozzarella at 85 calories, add a few leaves of basil, and a couple of slices of tomato, you will be in heaven. 

You can sweeten it up by making a balsamic reduction to drizzle over your salad. 

To make a balsamic reduction, you simply add balsamic vinegar to a frying pan and cook it until it gets thick. Let it cool before using it on your salad. That doesn’t seem like a whole lot of work at all … and it adds so much flavor and sweetness to your salad.

Shrimp Cocktail

Shrimp is a low-calorie shellfish that people love to eat hot or cold. As far as shrimp cocktail is concerned, the thing you have to watch you most for is the cocktail sauce. 

In the world of calories, not all cocktail sauces are created equal. Try to find a cocktail sauce that is around 50-75 calories per serving, and only use one serving (you may find that you use even less). 

Remember, a half-cup of shrimp is only around 100 calories, so this is a great snack that is under 200 calories, and it’s good for you. 

Eating shrimp has been connected to heart health and brain health. It also contains antioxidants. 

You know, in case you needed another excuse to eat shrimp for snack time.

Egg Cups

It looks like we have yet another “breakfast” food on our snack list. And you know what? Egg cups can be for any time. Let’s not restrict ourselves, ladies! 

If you’re looking for a high-protein, low-calorie snack, egg cups are essential. Just don’t add the cheese. It’s not worth the extra calories. You can make an egg cup taste great with simple, fresh ingredients. For example, green onions, red peppers, and mushrooms are all great ways to get flavor into your egg cups without adding too many calories. 

They’re perfect for snacks because they’ll fill you up quickly, and you can prep them a few days in advance to make them even more convenient.

To keep the egg cups low-calorie, be sure to avoid adding a ton of full-fat cheeses. If you need a little cheese pull in your life, just a little pinch goes a long way with these.

Vegan Snacks

Vegan snacks aren’t just for those on a vegan diet. However, it’s important to note that just because a snack is vegan doesn’t automatically make it a healthy snack. 

I mean, even Oreos are vegan, and have you read their nutritional information yet? Yikes!

But you know what the funny part is … companies will advertise their snacks as vegan, and people somehow automatically assume that whatever is in the packaging is going to make them lose weight.

I’ll let you in on a little secret: not all vegans are at their ideal weight. And when you take on a vegan diet for weight loss, you might realize that it’s a little more complicated than replacing your cheese and eating tons of almonds.

As with any diet, a vegan diet requires you to pay attention to the packaging of processed products and your nutritional intake. You don’t necessarily need to count calories, but it’s not an automatic healthy diet. 

That’s why I put together this list of healthy vegan snacks that you can munch on throughout the day.

Fruit Or Veggies With Hummus

Vegans may feel that the veggie and hummus snack is a little cliche in their culture. However, those who have had their fill of hummus probably haven’t had the chance to experience the true potential of hummus.

Note that this snack is called “Fruit or Veggies With Hummus.” That’s right; hummus can shift to a sweet snack as well as a salty snack. 

As a matter of fact, there are quite a few varieties of dessert hummus out there. 

If you choose to buy your hummus instead of making it, then be wary of the amount of added sugar. This is one of those snacks that can get a little dangerous.

Mushroom Jerky

Yes, mushroom jerky is a real thing. However, you may not find it on the shelves of every convenience store. As a matter of fact, you might be hard-pressed to find it on grocery shelves. 

But you can make it yourself. And it’s as simple as marinate, bake, and cool.

  1. Marinate your favorite mushrooms in your favorite flavors
  2. Bake at 250 degrees for 20 minutes, flip, bake an additional 20 minutes or until completely dry
  3. Let cool

Just make sure you cut the mushrooms about ½ inch thick or keep them whole before marinating them. They will shrink when they’re cooked.

Apple Nachos

Here’s another sweet snack for vegans to munch on. Now, if you’re vegan and watching your sugar intake, this one might be a little iffy for you. Just be sure your toppings aren’t full of added sugars because apples tend to contain a lot of natural sugars.

Apple nachos are an excellent way to satiate your sweet tooth. They’re also perfect for anyone who loves the mix of salty and sweet. 

Why are they so wonderful? Well, you can basically do anything to an apple to make it the perfect apple nacho for you. 

All you have to do is core and thinly slice your favorite apples. Then add your toppings.

Unlike actual nachos, you may want to stay away from melted cheeses for these ones. However, a low-fat or sugar-free dark chocolate drizzle with some chopped nuts might just do the trick. 

Mexican Pinwheels

Sometimes, having snacks that are like mini-meals can help us get through the day without feeling like we’re completely empty between meals. 

Mexican pinwheels are a great way to trick your brain into thinking you got a complete meal without all of the calories. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • I tsp Mexican seasoning of your choice
  • 2 tbsp low-fat shredded cheese
  • ½ tomato, diced
  • Cilantro 
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 10 tortillas (or gluten-free wraps)

And all you have to do is:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Spread mixture across a tortilla, then roll up
  3. Slice into 1 ½ inch sections

This simple recipe is great for meal prepping because the longer the ingredients stay together, the better they’ll mix.

Avocado Toast

Listen, avocado toast shouldn’t be considered a fad. It’s an excellent snack for so many reasons. First of all, avocados are a great way for vegans to get the good fats that are heart-healthy.

Additionally, there is no one way to make a good avocado toast. It’s all about your personal tastes. 

You can add pretty much any savory seasoning to avocado toast to make it delicious. 

Feeling like a Creole treat? Shake on a little low-sodium creole seasoning. 

In the mood for Italian? Basil and oregano are going to make your toast pop in your mouth. 

Avocado has a delicate flavor, so adding intense flavors really brings life to your toast.

Paleo Snacks

The Paleo Diet is another low-carb diet that keeps its followers off of gluten. It’s meant to encourage people to eat the way that cavepeople ate. If you’re following Paleo, you probably have a better understanding of how the proteins you eat affect your body.

If this diet works for you, you probably realize that the snacks can be a little lackluster, but the meals are actually pretty good. 

I’m here to tell you that there are some awesome Paleo snacks on the market. However, as usual, if you are going to purchase your snacks instead of making them yourself, you had better read that packaging.

You don’t want to get stuck with foods that are high in salt and added sugar just because you don’t have a lot of time to cook. And, don’t get me wrong, it’s totally fine if you don’t have time to cook. Trust me. I understand.

If you’re down to make your own Paleo-friendly healthy snacks, check out these ones I found for you.

Avocado Egg Salad

If you love avocado toast with egg on it, you will find this to be an awesome snack for you. And it’s super easy to make.

  1. Add ½ of an avocado and one hard boiled egg to a bowl
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste
  3. Mix it together

Eat it as is or dip your favorite veggies into it. It’s a simple (and quick) way to get a ton of protein and stick to a Paleo-friendly diet.

Sweet Potato Toast

You may feel a little intimidated making sweet potato toast for the first time. That’s because it feels unnatural to put a slice of sweet potato into a toaster. If this bothers you a lot, you can use a toaster oven or a conventional oven to make your sweet potato toast. 

As with anything that has to do with potatoes, you’re going to have a lot of benefits, but watch the amount of add-ons you put on it. 

Seriously. Sweet potatoes are great for you. However, if you’re adding a pound of cheese and a half a pound of bacon, you’re not snacking anymore. 

Cucumber Chips and Guac

I’m pretty sure that cucumbers are a great addition to any diet plan. And they’re a great way to give yourself a little extra hydration in the middle of your day.

Additionally, guacamole may be a little high in calories, but it’s full of nutrients that your body needs to function properly throughout the day. Think about it; guacamole is basically just avocados, tomatoes, onions, and cilantro.

All of these ingredients have tons of benefits that your body will thank you for. 

Add that to the fact that you’re dipping cucumbers into it, and you have yourself an awesome snack. And it works for nearly any diet, not just Paleo. 

Tuna in Pickle Boats

I’ll admit, this snack might not be for everyone. It contains two of the stinkiest foods in your refrigerator, but it is full of good stuff.

First of all, pickles are great for you because they contain vinegar. Additionally, they’re fermented. This can help with digestive health as well as gut health. Finally, pickles are made from cucumbers, which are full of excellent nutrients and antioxidants.

If you don’t loathe the pickle, add it to your daily menu.

Tuna is a heart-friendly protein that boosts immunity and aids in bone health. 

Putting tuna in a pickle boat is simple. Here are the steps:

  1. Cut a whole pickle in half
  2. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds
  3. Add the tuna mixture of your choice

It’s that simple. You can even mix the extracted seeds with your tuna mixture to make sure you reap all of the benefits of your pickles.

Roasted Potato Wedges

Potatoes are an ingredient that screams Paleo. Their earthy flavor and starchy makeup give you a fullness that can get you to the next meal.

Additionally, they’re great for curbing your cravings for french fries and other fried foods. 

When you roast the potato, you’re using less oil and adding flavor with additional seasonings.

Not sure how to go about making roasted potato wedges? Check out this quick fix:

  1. Cut potato into wedges
  2. Toss in ½ tsp of olive oil (or enough to coat the potato)
  3. Sprinkle with salt and rosemary and garlic powder
  4. Roast at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes (or until fork tender)

Of course, you can add any seasonings you want. Just be sure to watch the amount of sodium you’re adding to the wedges. Part of the reason we love french fries so much is because of the amount of salt they have.

Snacks For Diabetics

Wait a second … before we go any further, it’s important to consult your doctor about any health issues you may have. Dr. Google may have told you that you exhibit warning signs of diabetes, but your primary care physician should be the one who gives you a diagnosis. Diabetes isn’t something you want to mess around with. If you and your doctor have found that a diabetic diet can help you with your health and wellness goals, there are a lot of great snacks that you can add to your daily menu. 

If you’ve been looking to reduce blood sugar, you may find that sticking to a diabetic-friendly diet can help you stick to your health and wellness goals. 

As a matter of fact, diabetic diets don’t just benefit diabetics. They can benefit anyone looking to cut their sugar intake. These diets are also great for anyone who is challenging themselves not to eat any refined sugar for a period of time. 

Either way, sticking to a diabetic diet or a diabetic-friendly diet can give you a great advantage when it comes to meeting your health and wellness goals.

So, when it comes to sticking to a diabetic diet, you want to look for foods that have low natural sugars and low net carbs. So, yes, you can definitely eat carbs, but be sure that you have low net carbs. 

A product’s net carbs are determined by taking the number of carbohydrates in it and subtracting the dietary fiber and sugar alcohol. These carbohydrates tend to have less impact on blood sugar spikes, so they aren’t considered as dangerous.

Salmon Jerky

Alright, we’ve seen turkey jerky and mushroom jerky. It was only a matter of time before I told you another kind of jerky you probably never heard of. 

Yes, there is such thing as salmon jerky, and yes, it is pretty delicious if you like fish. The biggest problem with salmon jerky is that it can be pretty high in sodium. However, it has 15 grams of protein and zero carbs. 

If you add salmon jerky to your snack list during the week, be sure not to eat it in excess. This is especially important if you’re focusing on lowering your sodium.

Cottage Cheese And Tomatoes

In the case of eating cottage cheese on a diabetic diet, you will find that full-fat cottage cheese(4%) is better for you than 2% low-fat cottage cheese. However, your best bet is to stick to 1% reduced-fat cottage cheese, because it only has 3 grams of carbs and a staggering 10 grams of protein.

Now, if you’re used to mixing fruits with your cottage cheese, it may come as a surprise to you that you can also make a savory cottage cheese snack for yourself. 

And adding a few chunks of tomato, a sprinkle of salt, and a few twists of fresh cracked pepper to cottage cheese is out of this world. 

You don’t have to believe me, but you should definitely check this snack out, even if you aren’t on a diabetic diet.

Chia Seed Pudding

Alright, chia seeds have a little high net carb number than the rest of the snacks on this list. However, there are other elements of chia seeds that can actually help you regulate your blood sugar. Therefore, they shouldn’t be forgotten.

Here’s what you’ll need to make a delicious chia seed pudding for diabetics:

  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 1 ⅓ cup vanilla almond milk (not sweetened)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp. Your favorite sugar-free sweetener
  • A pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together (make sure there are no clumps). Let chill overnight. 

Black Bean Burger Bites

Like I said before, sometimes we just need a little mini-meal to help us get through the day.

Black bean burger bites are an excellent source of protein and fiber. They’ll help you stay full for hours between meals as well. 

Check out this awesome black bean burger recipe. To make it snack-sized, simply make smaller patties, and have them on standby in the fridge.

You can eat them on crackers, but they’re also great by themselves. They don’t need gluten or any other carb added to them to help you curb your cravings.

Edamame

When it comes to quick-fix snacks, edamame is one of those things that you should always have in your freezer. And all it is is whole soybeans and they’re delicious.

If you’ve never had edamame, don’t turn your nose up just yet. Its preparation is easy, and every mouthful gives you tons of dietary fiber and protein. As a matter of fact, just one cup of edamame gives you 8 grams of dietary fiber and 15 grams of protein.

And it’s super simple to make. You can pop it in the microwave or steam it. Once it’s heated through, sprinkle with coarse salt and pepper, and enjoy.

Every Diet Has Great Healthy Snack Ideas

There are a lot of great healthy snack ideas out there, but if you don’t know what these healthy snacks can do for you, you won’t know if they’re right for you. That’s why it’s so important to find snacks that adhere to your diet of choice.

And remember, your diet isn’t the foods you stay away from; it’s what you’re actually putting into your body.

So, when you consider your diet, consider every possible meal you can have with it. And don’t forget to include your snacks.
