Best Healthy Sacks
Do you need gluten-free snacks, or are you just looking for healthy snack ideas packed with protein and not too much sugar? Cottage cheese offers a protein punch, while the pineapple adds a mix of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Hard cheese is a great source of calcium and phosphorus and is one of the few good sources of vitamins B2 and B12 for non-meat eaters.
While peanut butter is high in fat, it’s the unsaturated (or ‘good’) kind — and peanuts are a great source of the antioxidant vitamin E. The apple is less than 90 calories and provides 3 grams of filling fiber; raisins also add more iron, vitamin C, and fiber.
Whole, minimally processed foods like berries, kiwis, goji berries, edamame, pistachios, oatmeal, plain yogurt and eggs make easy, tasty and healthy late-night snacks.
