I am a serious snack-aholic! I love potato chips, cookies and cereal as snacks(see photo attached!). Since I am trying to be more healthy these days, I am on the look out for snacks that are not only good for the body but also tasty as well. Any suggestions?:)

well, the dietitian I'm working with on my diet says that if I'm still hungry to snack on vegetables, so far I haven't needed to do it

I don't feel the need for dips any more since the only one I could eat isn't available.

I think one of the reasons we crave snack foods is the "crunch" affect especially something like potato chips. I often get those healthier granola type cereals (yes, they are kind of expensive) and just eat it right out of the box without milk poured on it. A lot of times as a snack though I love fixing a salad...some Romaine lettuce, sliced up tomatoes, cucumbers and maybe a few chunks of cheese like swiss, Monterrey jack, etc

Hi! For a healthy snack, i like to snack on raw vegetables. Just about every veggie from cucumbers, carrots, bellpeppers, to celery, cauliflower, and broccoli. I really like to put peanut butter on a stick of celery with raisins on top. My children really like it and introduced me to it. It does look weird, but it really does taste good. Good luck, and happy mylotting.

really? i have never tried raw cauliflower or broccoli. but i think it would be good to eat them raw so that you get all the nutrients and also the fiber :) thanks for sharing!

Tastees are made from rice and are meat free and wheat free so I suppose they can be called healthy- ish! I don't know how good for the body there are, but they are most tasty!

I think the best healthy snack is fruits, there are many fruits could be use as snack. Fruits are natural produce of mother Earth which are suitable for our body. BR.b
