Healthy snacking doesn’t mean depriving your taste buds. These palate-pleasing snack ideas are healthful and delicious:
- Seasonal fruit with organic whole milk, plain yogurt and freshly ground flaxseed.
- Whole-grain crackers with cheese or some smoked salmon.
- A small handful of raw or lightly toasted nuts.
- Toasted whole-wheat pita and hummus.
- A hardboiled egg (look for omega-3-enriched eggs for added nutritional value) sprinkled with smoked paprika.
- Fresh vegetables with high-quality yogurt – add fresh herbs and seasonings for more flavor.
