Healthy Snacks that won’t make you feel guilty

Did you know that thirst can actually make you feel hungry? Try drinking one glass of water before you reach for that Snickers bar. If after 30 min you still aren’t satisfied, then you may eat something. So what to choose? You’ll want to find something that will satisfy your hunger but also be nutritious.

A healthy selection of delicious snacks include;

  • 2 tablespoons of peanut or almond butter, smooth or crunchy or something in between, whatever you fancy really
  • Apple quarters topped with about 2 tablespoons of peanut or almond butter dusted with a sprinkling of cinnamon
  • Yoghurt and berry bowl (I love strawberries but you can mix any in really like blueberries or raspberries) You could even top this with a sprinkling of protein mix
  • Carrot or celery sticks, tricks my mind into thinking I’m eating chips
  • Hommus and brown crackers
  • Popcorn, homemade with kernels is best with a sprinkling of salt or cinnamon
  • Fruit. Yes too much fructose is not a good thing but I ate all the fruit I wanted for dessert most nights and still lost weight however, I advise you proceed with caution

Remember; munching on sweet and salty snacks occasionally is okay. Treat yourself! But also be honest with yourself. If you’re putting in more than you exert in physical activity then maybe it’s time for a change.

Love your health.

  1. Love this post on healthy snack ideas! I’ve read a few articles similar to this, where they say to eat something crunchy like celery if you’re craving something crunchy like chips, or to replace fruit for candy if you’re craving something sweet, but it never works for me lol!

    I do agree that it’s better to reach for something healthy when you’re feeling hungry and need a snack – I try to pack fruits and veggies as my snacks to work. But sometimes after dinner, if I’ve eaten healthy all day, I just have to let myself indulge a little!

    1. Yes I completely agree with you! Sometimes those healthy treats don’t give you the satisfaction you crave and a little indulging helps. It’s a great thing staying consistent throughout the day and then having a treat πŸ˜€ Thanks for reading!!
