Healthy Snack Foods

Posted Jul 21 2008 10:03am

Healthy snack foods come very easy to me, as I seem to always be snacking!  But I am just going to give you a few that have worked for me and seem to be tried and true as well!

One of my first rules to healthy snack foods  to get the foods that are as close to the tree or as whole as can be!   When in season have the convenience of fresh fruit, such as:

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, just about any berry!

Apples, bananas, peaches, apricots, and all the tree fruits!

What about grapes?  Of course, green or purple!

Just remember your portion size, (1/2 cup or medium size) and how many a day of fruits you should have (2-3).

Vegetables make wonderful healthy snack foods:

Baby carrots, cut cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower and grape tomatoes! The portions sizes are also 1/2 cup with the amount per day being 2-4!

Then there are the nuts:  Almonds, brazil nuts, cashews and pecans!  10-12 are a serving!

With summer being here, this selection of healthy snack foods are the most wonderful way to keep your vitamins and nutrients filling you body with the good stuff and who thought that healthy snack foods would taste so good???!!!
