There is something about a snack that gives us the energy boost we often need to make it through the day! Quick & Easy Snacks are great because they usually don’t require a lot of thought or preparation, and yet they can be delicious and satisfying! I personally like to eat one or two snacks a day, which typically range from 100 to 200 calories each.  I always try to incorporate some of protein and fiber in my snacks to keep me satisfied until my next meal. Here are some of my favorite snack ideas broken up into sweet & salty categories!

Sweet Snack Ideas:

Dashing Dish Protein Shakes or Smoothies

Dashing Dish Single Serve Cakes

Protein Bars (I like to make my own, but if I buy them, I look for ones that have less than 200 calories, more than 10 grams of protein, and less than 10 grams of sugar. Some good brands are Quest Bars, and  Think Thin Bars)

Apples with Peanut Butter (or Peanut Flour mixed with water to make a low calorie peanut butter)

Dashing Dish Protein Baked Goods (I like to make some of my protein muffins/bread and keep them in my freezer for when I need a quick snack, or to bring with me when I’m on-the-go)

Dashing Dish Overnight Oatmeal

Dashing Dish Granola

Greek Yogurt (I like buying the plain or vanilla flavors and adding stevia/honey with creative toppings, such as frozen fruit)

Sweet Potatoes (microwaved, and topped with cinnamon/stevia mixture)

Air Popped Popcorn (with stevia/cinnamon sprinkled on it)

Frozen Fruit (I personally like frozen berries, sweetened with a bit of stevia)

Fresh Fruit


Salty Snack Ideas:

Home Made Baked Pita Chips

Egg White Muffins or Fritatta with Vegetables

Skinny Easy Mac

Skinny Pizza Rolls

Cauliflower Pizza Bites

Home Made Tater Tots

Home Made Skinny Guacamole 

Fresh Vegetables with Hummus

Sweet Potato Fries

Green Bean Fries

Single Serve Pizza on a High Fiber Wrap/Pita

Roasted Veggies with Parmesan Cheese

Cheese Sticks

100-Calorie Pack of Roasted Almonds

Air Popped Popcorn with salt and/or parmesan cheese

Low Fat Cottage Cheese

These are not all of the ‘clean eating’ snack ideas out there, but these are just a few of my favorites! Please feel free to share some of your favorites in the comments!
