Cashews// cashews are my all-time favorite snack.  There are several advantages to sneaking in a few of these delectable morsels throughout your day: they are loaded with minerals and vitamins, they keep your stomach full for longer, and they’re thoroughly delicious.

 

Dried Fruit// it can be hard to find a snack that’s healthy yet also convenient.  Dried fruit gives you Vitamin C, potassium, and other nutrients, while also being very convenient to carry around all day.

 

 

Smoothies// smoothies are essentially a blended bundle of energy and strength!  The possibilities are endless; you can make your smoothie to fit whatever needs you have throughout the day.

 

 

Rice Cakes// rice cakes are the perfect midday snack; they are very low in fat and calories, but because most rice cakes are whole grain, they give you lots of fibers.

 

 

Dark Chocolate// it’s true! A small amount of dark chocolate everyday provides a large amount of antioxidants and even helps improve blood pressure.

 

 

Oats// I’ve saved the best for last!  For most of us, our lives are so busy and hectic it’s hard to actually sit down and enjoy a snack.  Well, you’re in luck, because oats eliminates that problem! This perfect on-the-go snack not only tastes divine, but provides you with a plethora of different vitamins and nutrients, lowers cholesterol levels, helps stabilize blood sugar, helps fight some diseases, and a myriad of other things that you can get all from eating one delicious grain.

 

 

As you can see, there are plenty of very healthy ways you can still enjoy a great snack during the day!
