Easy and healthy snacks for weight loss.

What do you reach for when hunger strikes in between meals? A apple, jerky? What about when you are out of the house?

Unless you want to tough it out until you get home, there isn’t many inexpensive and healthy options when you are out on the road.

Avoiding this issue is as simple as taking a healthy snack with you before you head out.

This way you don’t have an excuse to spend money, break off your diet, or whatever it is you may be trying not to do.

Here are 4 easy options to take with you that have very little preparation and that are delicious.


It doesn’t get simpler than this.

Other than going to buy them, all you have to do is grab a handful of these guys and toss them in a baggie and you are good to go.

You have a lot of options to choose from so don’t force yourself to stick with something like cashews if you don’t like them.

Dieting doesn’t have to be hard all the time. Be a smart dieter!

Some Major Benefits:

  • Great source of healthy fats; great for a keto diet, or in general if you are trying to add more diet friendly fats.
  • High in fiber; helps with your digestion, keeps you feeling fuller.
  • Heart food; nuts are great for several reasons. A big one is the fact that they are good source of Omega-3 fatty acids which are frequently linked with good heart health.


One of the great things about cheese is the amount of ways you can use it.

Not only can you eat it by itself, but it can be tossed in or over a myriad of dishes and snacks.

Just like nuts, there is a variety of cheese to pick and choose from.

Some Major Benefits:

  • Good source of protein; milk products generally have a good amount of protein per serving size, adding another option to experiment with if you feel like your diet may be getting a little bland.
  • Good source of calcium; generally speaking, the average person’s diet is lacking in calcium. Calcium is very important for improving bone health and should not be overlooked especially as you age.
  • Lactose intolerant friendly; contrary to popular belief there are some cheeses that actually has a very low amount of lactose. Some of these include Cheddar, Provolone, and Gouda.


Here’s another dairy product and, unlike cheese, it can be a little sweeter. Yogurt is fun because it feels like more of a dessert then most diet foods.

There are several of flavors and you can even toss in some chopped fruit if you would like.

To get the best options, avoid yogurts with added sugars!

Some Major Benefits:

  • Good source of protein; With both of them being dairy products, yogurt is a great source of protein, just like cheese.
  • Calcium; again, thanks to them being dairy, yogurt shares this great attribute with cheese.
  • Probiotics; when choosing a yogurt look for a label that says it contain live or active cultures. This means the yogurt has live bacteria ( the good kind!). This type of bacteria is great for your digestive health.

Nutrition Bars

No not the kind you drink at. Zinegr!

Corny dad jokes aside.

You can usually find a bar that will fit into whatever kind of diet you are on, that is what i find to be this type of snack’s best trait. There are so many types of bars out there for so many needs that you will find one that suits you.

With so many options, be extra careful about reading the food labels!

In your search for the best bar, you will come across many promising options that have too much sugar or just some unhealthy ingredients in general.

You wont know what is beyond the surface until you dig.

Some Major Benefits

  • Huge versatility; again, there are so many bars out there, you will find one that suits you.
  • Travel friendly; considering that they are compact, pre wrapped and generally have a long shelf life, they are great for avoiding diet killers when you are out of the house.
  • Can be great sources of protein, fats, carbs, vitamins; just pay attention to the ingredients and calories!
