20 Quick and Healthy Snack Ideas

I've been known to get downright mean when I don't eat a snack. I know how important it is to eat snacks throughout the day, but I also know how difficult it can be to make a healthy choice when you don't plan ahead and the only edible thing in sight is contained within a vending machine. For this reason, I created this quick and healthy snack guide. I would like to encourage you make time for at least 1 healthy snack each day. Snacks take the edge off, keep blood sugars stable, prevent overeating at meals, etc., etc., etc. Make your snack high in fiber and include some protein. This will keep you feeling full longer.

Here are some ideas...
