10 Healthy Snacks for 200 Calories

Filed under Food Choices

Snacking can be the downfall of any healthy diet plan.

I’m astounded by the sheer number of unhealthy snack options that are hurled at us at every turn as we try to go about our business.

  • Dollar menus
  • Checkout displays
  • Vending machines
  • Office break rooms

However,  if we plan ahead, healthy smart snacks can be useful in preventing impulse buys, binge eating, and overeating at mealtime.

Snacks that have some protein, fiber, and a little healthy fat are usually the best because they leave the us feeling satisfied for longer.

Below I’ve put together pictures and calorie information for 10 snacks that will help you survive the unhealthy snack onslaught between meals. I’ve also included macro amounts for those counting macros.
