Healthy Snack Ideas - With Real Photos

1:50 PM

Thanks to my husband's generous gift of an iPhone 5, I have been snapping nonstop photos of my meals and snacks over the past month.

Sometimes it's hard to conjure up a healthy snack which Ritz crackers, caramel popcorn and ginger ale are at our finger tips and require no imagination. But if our only obstacle is igniting your creativity then I am up to the challenge!

Use some of these suggestions, along with a few photos of things I've eaten recently (or served to Oliver). They range in prep time, cost, flavour preference, and even health-factor, but I love them all.

  • A mini whole-grain wrap or pita stuffed with egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad or fresh veggies
  • Pita wedges, baked, dipped in hummus
  • A hard-boiled egg and cherry tomatoes
  • A mug of vegetable soup 
  • An olive, aged cheddar and fig plate
  • Pumpernickle toast with natural peanut butter and dried fruit
  • Leftover quinoa/rice/other grain with chopped cucumber and vinaigrette added
  • A bowl of oatmeal with maple syrup and walnuts
  • A mini pizza on a whole-grain english muffin (toppings: mushrooms, green pepper, pineapple)
  • Puffed cereal, edamame and cheddar cheese chunks
  •  Carrot sticks, kiwi, pickles, trail mix with a peanut-butter and pistachio coated date

  • Homemade yogurt with fresh fruit, sunflower seeds and pepitas
  • Guacamole!
  • Banana, toasted cashews and mini-muffins

  • Lemon poppyseed loaf, mixed fruit

  • A slice of flourless dark chocolate cake bathed in mixed berries
