27 healthy snacks to beat 3pm cravings

Posted on

Your snacking habits have the power to either make or break your weight loss or healthy eating success.

I generally don’t recommend snacking because it’s often associated with bad food habits such as skipping meals and choosing packaged and convenience foods that are high in salt, fat and sugar and low in nutrition.

However, snacking in itself isn’t all bad, so as long as you’re eating properly throughout the day and are organised enough to ensure healthy snacks are on hand.

Here are some healthy snack ideas that are under 200 calories each

  1. 1 banana
  2. 20g nuts and 50g dried fruit
  3. 1 carrot and 2 tbsp hummus
  4. 1 apple with 30g sliced low-fat cheese
  5. 2 celery sticks and 1 tbsp peanut butter
  6. 150-200g yoghurt
  7. 2 oranges, 1 carrot and 1 cup baby spinach in a blender. Blend well. Drink pulp and all.
  8. 1 regular skim cappuccino
  9. 1 small (90g) tin of tuna and 2 vita wheat crackers
  10. 1 pumpkin and spinach muffin
  11. 1 punnet blueberries and 4 squares of extra dark chocolate
  12. 1 quinoa and linseed ball
  13. 2-3 mandarins
  14. 75g ricotta cheese and 5-6 strawberries
  15. 1 cup sugar snap peas
  16. 10 multi-grain rice crackers with 2 tbsp hummus
