Yay snacks! I love some good snack talk (very different from smack talk, BTW). Even if you’re doing a great job at eating healthy for your regular meals, there are still snacks to think about.
I eat a whole lot of snacks throughout the day. When I meal plan for the week, I also plan snacks because I know I’ll want them. Having a list of easy, healthy snacks is a game changer, so let’s get to it!
If you like this list, you can get a printable version of it to reference as you make your grocery list each week. Just enter your info below and I’ll send it over for you!

Hard Boiled Eggs
We make batches of hard boiled eggs regularly in the Instant Pot and they turn out perfect every time. See my recipe here.
Look for applesauce without added sugar.
- Cucumber Slices
- Green Pepper Slices
Use a bit of ranch dressing or hummus as a dip.
Most muffins are far less healthy than you think so be careful when you’re choosing a muffin. I make a batch of my no sugar whole wheat banana muffins every week so that we have them on hand for snacks.
We buy multigrain tortilla chips that are a bit more nutritious than regular tortilla chips.
Yogurt and Granola
Watch the sugar content on both.
English Muffin with Peanut Butter
Whole grain muffins have extra fiber in them and I actually think they taste better. Look for a natural peanut butter without much added sugar and watch your serving size. This is a super filling snack.
Go for unsalted and measure out a serving size.
Cottage Cheese with Fruit
A Piece of Extra Dark Chocolate
The darker the better because there will be less sugar and more fiber. We eat 85% dark chocolate.
Apple Slices and Peanut Butter
Look for a natural peanut butter without much added sugar.
Celery and Peanut Butter
Look for a natural peanut butter without much added sugar. #brokenrecord
Cheese and Crackers
Ham and Cheese Rollups
Roll together a slice of deli meat and a slice of deli cheese, like ham and swiss. Or spread a thin layer of cream cheese on the deli meat and roll it up.
Tuna on Whole Grain Crackers
Having healthy snacks on hand definitely helps me make more nutritious choices when I get the munchies multiple times per day.
Each week, when I create our meal plan, I make sure that we have about four or five healthy snack options available to us. It can be super simple, like a piece of whole fruit, or a little more involved like my banana muffin recipe I make each week. Happy snacking!
