Ditch the Crap: Try These Healthy and Tasty Snacks

When the mid-morning, mid-afternoon or late night munchies hit, be ready. Don't fall prey to office vending machines, desktop candy bowls or those left over cookies from a client meeting. Get your booty to Trader Joe's and make sure you have some of these healthier (and still super tasty) options on hand at work and home to tide you over. Presented here in somewhat random order. Enjoy!

  • Brown rice cake with organic peanut butter and sliced banana 
  • Greek yogurt with almonds and berries
  • Greek yogurt with peanut butter (stir it up real good like a mousse) and berries 
  • Fresh fruit like sliced apples, berries and apricots (add Greek yogurt or peanut butter)
  • Freeze dried fruit (strawberries and mangos)
  • Jerky (like the Salmon, Beef and Chicken brands shown here)
  • Baby Bel (my favorite) or string cheese
  • Healthier chips like these Lentil Curls, Plantain Chips or Blue Corn Tortilla Chips with salsa, cheese or hummus
  • Almonds or other fresh nuts (with cheese, jerky and/or fruit)
  • Veggies (carrots, cucumbers, snap peas) with hummus or salsa 
  • Fresh pickles 
  • Rx bars
