11 Healthy Snack Ideas for Adults

490832We love getting requests from our patients. Last week you asked you for more ideas on healthy snacks for adults.

To start with, in the wise words of our very own Dr. Shelby, “You want to focus on snacks that don’t mess with your blood sugar.”

To do that, you’ll want to:

  • Avoid carbs, sweets, chocolates or dried fruit
  • Focus on things high in fiber, water and/or protein

This approach helps stabilize your blood sugar, keep your energy and concentration up, and reduce your hunger and drowsiness.

Here are 11 we came up with:

  1. Nuts and seeds of all kinds (unsalted)
  2. Hummus and carrots
  3. Hard-boiled eggs
  4. Unsweetened Greek yogurt with fruit
  5. Cottage cheese
  6. Celery and nut butter
  7. Apple and nut butter
  8. Kale chips (recipe)
  9. Green smoothies (we love the MacroGreen product as a good cheat – available at the clinic or online here)
  10. Protein powder mixed with water or milk alternative (soy milk is high in protein)
  11. Edamame pods with sea salt
