Good Snacks To Eat At Home Or On The Go
When it comes to living a healthier lifestyle, knowing which healthy snacks to make is very helpful. Especially for healthy snacks on the go. Strict diets aren’t always necessary. You can make small changes by making healthy homemade snacks that focus on balance and nutrition. I hope you enjoy these delicious healthy snack ideas!
Veggies and Dip
An easy healthy snack to start with is simply combining veggies with your favorite type of dip. This might be bell peppers and cucumbers dipped in hummus or carrots and celery dipped in guacamole. Love broccoli? Cut it up into small pieces and bring along a healthy dip like hummus, homemade ranch dip, or guacamole, and go to town! There are also a lot of different types of flavored dips that kick up your snack a little, without packing on the fat or calories.
Homemade Protein Balls
If you are a fan of protein bars but don’t want the bars loaded with sugar and unwanted ingredients, you can make your own! Instead of bars, it is easier to combine the ingredients and make oat balls. You can grab one or two for a snack when heading out the door, pack it for lunch, or enjoy it at home. Protein balls come in different varieties with tons of recipes, but the basic recipe uses oats, chocolate chips, almond butter, and ingredients like seeds.

Oatmeal with Toppings
If you have time to make a bowl of oatmeal, this can be a hearty and filling snack that also provides you with lots of fiber and protein. A single serving of oats is typically around 100 calories, so this is a light snack, even with your toppings. You can add anything you like to it, such as banana, almond butter, chocolate chips or cacao nibs, chia seeds, granola, walnuts, or fresh berries. There are an endless number of possibilities.
Yogurt and Berries or Granola
For a quick snack that you can enjoy at home or on the go, grab a serving of yogurt and top it with berries. You can also use granola on top to make it a little more filling with an extra boost of nutrients. This is a really quick snack to make when you have Greek yogurt and berries at home. Some other toppings that work great include nut butter, honey, and granola.
