10 Healthy Snack Ideas Under 120 Calories Each

It's the new year and a lot of people have made a resolution to eat better. A lot of times, people remember to eat better during the major meals, but forget about snack time! Here is a list of 10 healthy snacks that are under 120 calories. Most of these snacks are pretty balanced with fat, fiber, protein and sugars.  Some might have a little more sugar or a little more protein than others.   If you need more than 100 - 120 calories, just double the amounts.

1.  1 Cup Air-Popped Popcorn, 1/8 cup dried cranberries, 10 unsalted peanuts.   (If you don't have an air popper, you can put popcorn kernels in a paper bag, tape it shut and microwave for 2 minutes or until popping stops. No oil or butter is needed) 


2.  Whole boiled egg and 9 baby carrots.




3.  Half medium Cara Cara orange and 1 Mozzarella String Cheese. 


4.  1 slice of Lite Multigrain bread and 2 teaspoons of Chocolate Peanut Butter . 


5.  1 date and 8 almonds. 


6.  8 ounces of Coconut Almond Milk and half a small apple with 1 teaspoon of creamy peanut butter. 


7.  3 Tablespoons Hummus and 4 medium-sized stalks of celery.


8.  10 blueberries plus 1 square of 85% Cocoa Extra Dark Chocolate, chopped and added to 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt.  Plain yogurt and dark chocolate are both acquired tastes.  This one might not be for everyone.


9.  3 Baked wheat crackers topped with 1 Plum tomato sliced thin, 1 thin slice red onion and 1/8 cup feta cheese and a sprinkle of garlic powder.  


10.  10 green pepper strips with ranch yogurt dip. Ranch yogurt dip is made with 1/4 cup plain non-fat yogurt, 1 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/8 teaspoon onion powder, 1/8 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. dried dill, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes if you like it spicier.
