The Best Healthy Snacks in Your Basket  : 15 snack ideas to satisfy your cravings without guilt - PART 1

Stores are full of new products advertised as “Healthy Snacks”. The trend for healthy organic and natural products is on everyone’s mind these days and many companies have picked up on it. But not necessarily all the products labeled as Healthy Snacks are all that healthy. Here at Wellness we have taken on the challenge to select, taste, compare and provide you with the answers as to which Healthy Snack is worth your Healthy Snacking.  

We have selected 15 of our favorite products, which give you more than just an energizing calorie punch but fibers, nutrients, proteins and other goodies that make this snack worth enjoying. A good snack should contain roughly 150-200 calories for an average adult while providing essential nutrients. Some of our favorites are a bit higher in sodium or sugar than we would like, but most have less fat and saturated fat than other similar snacks while containing great perks like fibers and proteins. We recommend eating one to three snacks per day. In Part 1 of our selection, we cover 8 satisfying snacks that balance healthy fat, fiber, whole grain, lean protein, and/or other nutrients that will keep you in a positive mood and give you good energy.

Here are Wellness Magazine’s healthy snack choices:
