While delicious, food trucks typically aren't to best place to find a healthy snack.

While delicious, food trucks typically aren’t to best place to find a healthy snack.

Healthy eating isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Many low-calorie snacks require lots of prep work before they’re ready to eat, which you don’t always have the time for when you’re in a hurry or just plain hungry!

While it’s a whole lot easier to grab a bag of Doritos or some cookies when you’re starving and in desperate need of food, that’s certainly not the way to go. Midday and late night binges can cause you to gain some serious weight. And fast. Instead it’s important to come up with healthy snack ideas that taste good and will fill you up.

Six Quick & Easy Healthy Snack Ideas

Practice your healthy eating habits by stocking your kitchen with these low-calorie snacks:

  • Fresh Cut Fruit: Don’t wait to wash and cut your fruit until you’re ready to eat it. Do it in advance so they’ll be no excuse not to eat it when you’re on the prowl for low-calorie snacks.
  • Greek Yogurt: Easy, healthy, and delicious, this is quite possibly the best snack ever.
  • Kale: Keep some of these leafy greens on hand to turn into delicious crispy kale chips, requiring very little effort.
  • Almonds: Healthy eating at its easiest. Opt for a handful or two, not a bowl of these satisfyingly delicious little gems.
  • Light String Cheese: An awesome snack staple that should always be kept in your refrigerator. My favorite is Frigo Light String Cheese Swirls. Apparently most of the rest of the world is also a fan, as the grocery store is always sold out.
  • Popchips: Feeling salty? Satisfy your cravings with any of the delicious Popchips flavors instead of one of their fatty rivals.
